About Us

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 taproom 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. With a great location, Bull Durham Beer Co.’s locally-crafted brews, live music, and the best wings in town, make sure you visit The Bullpen next time you’re in town.

Dear friends, due to events in downtown #Durhamnc, we are closed today (8/18) & the show is cancelled. Stay safe and come on back Saturday!
