Enjoy hand-crafted cocktails, beer from local breweries, and wine at two bars in the Hall.

Two New Bars in Durham

The Auctioneer Bar

DFH’s centrally located bar offers seasonal cocktails, along with a thoughtfully curated beer, wine, and spirits selection – all designed to highlight our vendors’ cuisines and spotlight local breweries and distillers. With plenty of communal seating nearby, the Auctioneer is a friendly, inclusive space for friends and strangers alike to gather – whether you’re posting up to enjoy your food, or meeting to celebrate and enjoy one another’s company.

Riggs Lounge

Overlooking the main hall from the mezzanine, Riggs Lounge offers a more intimate gathering space. Adjacent to DFH’s event spaces, Riggs Lounge is a perfect spot to host a small party, enjoy a date night, hold a company outing, or to complement your large special occasion.
