HI WE ARE THE PINHOOK
First off we want to acknowledge that we are located on Shakori / Skaruhreh / Tuscarora / Lumbee land. Currently we donate to Lumbee Nation Tribal Lands Inc. to support this acknowledgement. Please let us know ways you support indigenous folks / orgs in this area!
WE ARE HERE TO … PARTY… AND…DO OUR BEST TO AMPLIFY MARGINALIZED VOICES IN OUR DURHAM COMMUNITY. PLEASE REACH OUT!!
We are a queer owned and operated 200 cap music venue AND event space with great sound and amazing / supportive / badass staff. We are 15 years young!
We’ve recently updated our stage lighting / projector and live stream capabilities. We also want to host your private party or your organizations celebration / talk / meeting. We rent our space for video shoots or anything that will leave positive energy behind. JUST WRITE US WE WILL DO ALMOST ANYTHING 🙂
Being that we are a venue we don’t hold REGULAR hours – but are open ALMOST every night and hold many FREE events so just check our calendar!
Join our PATREON! It is the most helpful – we are a community organization and venue and your help allows us to offer space to queer / progressive orgs that keep Durham on the side of your and our communities! We’ve been here for over 15 years and watched Durham change in ways we both appreciate and are concerned about. We need your support to stick around – so thank you for anything you can offer to help out, be it coming in and partying or donating to our patreon to ensure events like Queer Movie Night / Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night and fundraisers for local orgs can keep happening here.
We offer livestreams to some shows and entry into every ticket giveaway plus access
our virtual archives!
We do have seating in the form of benches against the wall but that
might be tight if getting into tight spaces is not relatively easy. We
can set chairs out and its best to just hit the venue up at doors or
before the show and ask the bar tender to set out chairs if there aren’t
any! Also if you’d like to sit at the bar you can ask for a stool (they are
often taken up for big crowded shows) and there’s generally a great
sightline where you can avoid the crowds as well! There is an accessible stall in each bathroom. Please let us know anything you need.
Some events are over 21 and some are accessible to under 21 folks! Please check the web! Mostly dance parties and karaoke are over 21. Most shows are ALL AGES.
We have a back patio for you to engage in your deep breath practice and consume your libations.
