The name of the bar is really called ‘He’s Not Here’. It is described as being on the Village Green. In 1800 I am sure it was, now it is down a small alley way that does actually open up into an outside area. There are a few trees and a little bit of grass. This is a great place for music. They have bands all the time. A great night for live music is usually a Thursday night. A small cover charge is payable. My fraternity (Phi Kappa Sigma) used to rent it out on Thursdays and hire the bands. The cover charge paid the bar, the band and our bar bill. Not bad for just $1.
The drink of choice here is the ‘Blue Cup’. 32 ounces of beer. Beer it is then for everyone. The bar is upstairs in a narrow and long building. The toilets from hell are downstairs.
Do not forget to collect a bumper sticker that says ‘He’s Not Here’! They are FREE !!!
Dress Code: Who cares?
Downtown Durham is great for nighttime entertainment. It's popularity is deserved while Duke students and young professionals gather..
Word to the wise... Downtown Durham is really confusing to drive thru even to long time locals. Make sure you know exactly where you are going and how to get back because you don't want to be stuck driving around Durham late at night.
This area of the city has really come into it's own in the last few years. You'll find resturants, clubs and bars all along Glenwood Street. The fact that NC state Univ. is nearby lends to many young professionals and college kids being here until early morning on the weekends...
No... Freddie Kruguer does not live on this Elm St,
but this area really comes to life when the sun goes down. Some of the local spots to go to are: N Club, Greene Street Club, Heaven and on and on...
There are 8 major cities in North Carolina. Of these 8 cities, only 3 of them have any type of nightlife worth going to. They are Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington. The rest: Durham, Asheville, Winston Salem, Greensboro, and High Point. They suck, so don't bother wasting your time. Especially in Durham.
There's nothing like walking on the beach at night, enjoying the colorful sky, the stars and the moon whiles listening to the ocean waves crash on the shore. It's so peaceful here, it feels like you're the only ones there! Very romantic!
Greenshields Brewery in Raleigh is a great place to enjoy a handcrafter lager or ale. It's located in Raleigh's historic City Market right in downtown. Check the website for a listing of upcoming live music acts and information on touring the brewery.
This is the place to be if you're a student at one of the Research Triangles three universities. Franklin Street runs along the edge of the University of North Carolina's campus in Chapel Hill and has plenty of bars, clubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and theaters for a long night out.
This is a comfy little place that at first I thought was cliqueish because it seemed everyone knew each other. It turned out this was just one more aspect of a lingering small town mentality. That's not a dig it was explained to me by the locals. Good food, reasonable prices for drinks.
Dress Code: Whatever

Paddy Gibney is an Irish singer who puts on a great performance on Friday nights. He drinks Guiness and tells Irish jokes and SINGS!! 21 and older only
Great music, great bartenders (in summer 1999), great atmosphere, great food!
From summer 2000: As a side note - we just got back from Avon and we didn't see that the Froggy Dog was open. We don't know why or we may have missed it while it was open, but their hours have, at the very least, been cut back. They may have even closed.
Dress Code: Typical beach bar, I think. I don't remember any bathing suits, but shorts and t-shirt were okay, I think.
Funny thing about the outer banks is that it is a dry island. You can bring your own booze to a bar and they will set you up with the rest. Restaurants are the same thing.
There is really not much night life there except for a walk on the beach or watching the zillions of stars up in the sky. Just quietness. You can soak in the hot tub. LOL
For a night of cultural bliss, head downtown to the Blumenthal. You'll be able to catch the best of theater, opera and music.
