We aim to be the standard for all things cocktail in Chapel Hill.
The Crunkleton opened in 2008 on West Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and become a pioneer in Pre-Prohibition era cocktails. We have been featured in The New York Times and The Bitter Southerner and named one of the “Best Bourbon Bars in the South” by Garden & Gun magazine. Our cocktail menu features timeless favorites like the Manhattan and Sazerac made the proper way and our own unique recipes prepared with choice spirits, fresh juices and house-made infusions. We are also known for our massive library-style “liquor wall”, knowledgeable bartenders and high level of service, ice that is hand carved on-site, and a reserve cabinet with rare liquors you won’t find in any other bar in the South.
