Downtown Durham is full of great places to eat and entertain yourself and The Bullpen is right in the center of it all. In late 2016, Heavenly Buffaloes and Bull Durham Beer came together to create a tap room in the shadow of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. If you need somewhere to gather everyone together and have a pre-game drink, or if you want to celebrate a Bulls win with some of Durham’s best wings, we’re the place.
The Bullpen is also right next to the Durham Performing Arts Center and the American Tobacco Campus, so it’s convenient to the best nightlife in town. Speaking of night life, The Bullpen has our own live blues music playing free, most nights. It is quickly becoming a local favorite. Tim Duffy, co-founder of Music Maker Relief Foundation said to keep an eye on The Bullpen as we, “will surely become one of the nation’s greatest blues clubs.”
With a great location, Bull Durham Beer’s locally-crafted brews, live music, and the best wings in town, make sure you visit The Bullpen next time you’re around the DBAP, DPAC, and the ATC in Durham.
If you love a good lineup, you’ll love The Bullpen’s rotating features. We have constant variety in our craft beer options, including many local favorites, as well as other great beers from outside the Triangle. Our tap room is the spot to enjoy a beer while enjoying live music, some wings, or as part of a night at a Bulls game or DPAC show.
Check out our Taproom with a killer ever-changing beer program featuring both “Home Team” favorites, Bull Durham Beer Co., and select “Visiting Team” features.
Our Game Room
The best thing about the 80s, other than the movie Bull Durham, was playing arcade games and pinball with friends. Thankfully, a wave of nostalgia has brought this past-time roaring back to life. Now people have grown up, and want to play these games with their friends again, but now they want to drink beer while they do it. We’re totally on board. In fact, we’ve got just the place for you.
The Bullpen has a fully-equipped game room for you and your buds to experience some nostalgia and competition. We have some of the classic pinball games you know and love, as well as pool tables, and other games. On Mondays, you can even get free play on the pinball and pool. Not a bad way to get over a tough Monday.
The game room is the perfect place to keep the win streak going after the Bulls game. Or maybe you need to stretch out and digest some of the wings you just ate (after you wash the buffalo sauce off your fingers, of course). Just dust off those old pinball skills and we’ll pour you a beer.
