Some more to add to this list. Arguably the coolest bar in town, The Republic, located between Whisky and Mateo. A new bar, Bar Lusconi, just opened downtown. Wine bars are missing from this list. Two that come to mind are West End Wine Bar and Six Plates. G2B has some of the most esoteric beer selections in town.
This was just a list of bars, nothing really interesting was said about any of them. I thought by the title you would have more insight into each spot and not just a basic overview. Not to be mean, but as a new person in Durham, this maybe the most boring bar hoping article I've ever read.
The Mutual Savings Bank over the We Want Oprah building jut around the corner? For shame.
I have an art exhibit on display this month - May 2013 - at the above-mentioned Joe Van Gogh (1104 Broad St, Durham)! Pop by and check it out! http://www.facebook.com/events/50245945647…
Not that it matters, but surely you know that Tyler's is a fairly recent addition to downtown (like all of the American Tobacco complex)? Durham has been "cool" long before Tyler's decided to open an outpost downtown. Futhermore, the "Durham Find Your Cool" sloganeering will forever piss me off.
An extensive piece on South Durham is in our Eats guide. Also, Kat Benson, the author of the piece in the Durham Finder about places for families—all over the county—lives in South Durham.
I'm going to have to agree with Fritx, not putting Tyler's in there is a big mistake. Tyler's came in well before most of those places and helped pioneer craft beer in the triangle. They were downtown before it was cool.
There is more to Durham than just downtown, how about doing a feature on South Durham? Lots going on there too!~
Tylers Taproom should be on there
Raleigh is pretty cool, yes. But Cary? We have nothing in common.
Most of Raleigh---particularly downtown and the rest of ITB--would rather be lumped in with Durham and Chapel Hill/Carrboro. You know, the original three points of The Triangle.
But Cary and the rest of Wake County is about as embarrassing as it gets. Conservative, right-winged, and sprawling suburbia. They have more in common with Johnston County than the rest of the Triangle, in my view.
For god's sake don't put us in the same article as them.
Raleigh, for all it's positive points, will always have the disadvantage of being in Wake County---but we'd really like to distance ourselves from it if we could, thankyouverymuch.
