As The name itself already suggests i, Whisky River is a stylish, old-fashioned cocktail bar with outside seating overlooking Durham’s famous riverside and Elvet Bridge. However, non-cocktail lovers will also enjoy themselves as there is a good selection of continental beers and lagers, with the pleasure of live music during the nights as well.
Bars & Nightlife
Like all major towns and cities, Durham has a lively and kaleidoscopic bar scene. New fashionable and trendy bars are opening all the time, while the more traditional and quintessential British drinking house, the pubs, remain ever popular with locals, students and tourists. With its cobbles, centuries of spiritual heritage and old-world feel, Durham is perhaps not normally associated with a lively up to the minute nocturnal scene. However, the nightclubs do what they do very well, particularly those around the North Road district of the city.
