Hand crafted by artists, Bowbarr is a true destination spot. This bar is cozy and interesting. The music is from a record player, a stone and sea shell mosaic sink in the bathroom, stenciled striped ceiling, custom booths and concrete bar with wood inlay, rainbow colored lights and a vintage photo booth. The cocktails are unique and refreshing, with house made sour and bloody mary mixes along with infused simple syrups.

This is the place to get cocktails of origin, of garden and vision--not a prohibition textbook. If you want authentic Carrboro, authentic Chapel Hill, if you want authentic Triangle, go to Bowbarr. Great drinks, great sounds, great service, great vibes. This is family.

Good drinks, a range of beers and cocktails, hipster atmosphere. A local favorite is the pickle back shot: a shot of whisky chased with pickle brine from local deli Neal's Deli. Note, because they do not serve food, they are required by the state of...More

Knowledgeable and creative bartenders, interesting decor, great music, local characters, an outdoor patio, and a photo booth--can't go wrong with Bowbarr!
