The Bullpen, at 359 Blackwell Street in Durham, is in the heart of Durham, next to the Durham Performing Arts Center and American Tobacco Campus. It’s also in the shadow of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
It’s the place to go for a pre-game drink or to cheer on the Bulls. It also has a game room.
Watch this video for a taste of what’s going on at The Bullpen.
The live music has a focus on blues, but is not limited to blues. There are some great singer/songwriter, solo and Americana artists too.
A dollar from every pint is donated to Music Maker Relief Foundation, a non-profit that was founded to preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make that music.
