Moe’s Tavern: Durham County’s northernmost watering hole

Posted by RPP 17 May 2009 6 Comments

Although folks in northern Durham County (Bahama) still need to drive 15+ minutes to get bread or Windex, at least they can now get a cheap ice-cold Bud right down the street.  We’ve done some checking, and as of its opening two months ago, Moe’s Tavern (12911 Roxboro Road) in Rougemont holds the county’s northernmost beer license.


Looking for a quiet place to do some afternoon drinking because we are out of school study for the bar exam, we drove by Moe’s and stopped in for a couple of beers.  It’s a great little bar with $2 beers and really friendly people.  Within a minute the (very adorable) bartender had introduced herself to us, gotten our names, and offered up the dart board and pool table for our use.


They have a couple of TVs, probably permanently tuned to ESPN2.  Although they were already playing good music when we arrived, our opinions on what to listen to were quickly solicited.

We will be back frequently.

    Moe’s is a bar, which hasn’t really been advertised, but is in need of visitors, so if you live in the area, come visit us. There is a pool table, TV’s, Jukebox, Darts, Shoes, Silver-Strike Bowling, and much more. Come check it out! Everyone is welcome.
