The Kraken, 2823 NC Highway 54 W, in Chapel Hill, is a roadhouse a few miles west of downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro and a few miles east of Saxapahaw. It features a great front porch, free pool, and live music. They also show all the UNC basketball games.
They’re holding live shows again, outside, with limited attendance. They’re also live streaming some shows.
While open for business, only staff and performers will be permitted inside the bar, with the exception of bathroom access via the back door. Drinks will be served via our new window on the front porch with traffic patterns clearly marked in order to ensure safe distancing.
Here’s some of what’s coming up. Make sure to note whether it’s a live, in-person show, or a livestream (or both.)
In all cases, please makes sure to follow the link for details. If there’s not a link, just go to the Kraken’s Facebook page and look for the event there.
