The Bar Durham

Home of the Slut Bucket

Based within the heart of Old North Durham’s Warehouse District, the bar is the OG Bull City LGBTQ home base. The latest iteration of a more than two decade long tradition of clubbing for queers. We’ve reinvented the space with the intention to carry on the legacy of 711 Rigsbee Avenue. "Cheers" during the week "Lit"uations on the weekends. Oh, and did we mention we have hookahs?

the bar is a place to come with friends, or make friends– to share drinks after work, watch your favorite sporting events, drag shows, and karaoke and MirIAm's Open mic. On Friday and Saturday nights catch a vibe with our DJs. We pride ourselves on being inclusive – this is a bar for everyone to enjoy. Most importantly, we recognize that YOU make the bar. This isn’t just the bar – it’s YOUR bar!

Cuffing Season Party

During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be "Cuffed" or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.

Roll Bounce Dance Party

to Jan 20

Roll Bounce Dance Party

It’s the winter of 2018 and if you’re looking for good times there is just one place to go: THE BAR where the music is hot, the girls and guys are hotter, and the entire atmosphere is dynamite. The staff at THE BAR once ruled supreme at their south side Durham rink, but when the doors of their favorite hangout closed, it marked the end of an era and the beginning of another that sees all of us venturing into completely foreign territory: The swanky new Sweetwater Roller Rink, with its sleek, well-to-do roller-boys and gorgeous girls in short-short
Ok, Ok...We really don't have a roller rink but we are clearing the whole place out to make room for a makeshift skate rink and yep we will have hopscotch and Double Dutch too. So come on out for a great time of skating, hopping, jumping and dancing! DJ RNB will be burning up the rink with all of your favorite Roll Bounce hits. Oh and don't forget to bring your skates...we don't have any rentals...lol.
