Biker Bar NC in Durham launches this fall

Posted by on Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 4:07 PM

Pub crawls, food tours, a rolling party, a night of gallivanting: Downtown restaurateurs and entrepreneurs Seth Gross and Martha Philpott King are launching Biker Bar NC, a 14-seat human-powered bicycle with riders facing one another around a center bar area while a bike captain steers, brakes and provides a guided tour along your route. The bar route begins and ends at Bull City Burger and Brewery, 107 E. Parrish St.

You supply the beer or wine (none of the hard stuff, though) and the Biker Bar provides the driver. Prices and policies are on the bar's FAQ page.

Raleigh has a similar venture, the Trolley Pub Raleigh, which departs from the Warehouse District on West Street.

The inaugural ride is Saturday, Aug. 24, at 11:15 a.m. with celebrity guest riders Mayor Bill Bell and Frank Stasio, host of WUNC's "The State of Things."

The remaining 12 seats are being auctioned off with all of the proceeds going to the John Avery Boys and Girls Club of Durham. Bid now at www.biddingforgood.com/bikerbarnc.

This is the latest venture from the BCBB team; this fall, they plan to open Pompieri Pizza around the corner at City Hall Plaza.
