Motorco Music Hall is Durham’s largest music venue and bar with a capacity of 500+.  Located in the Central Park district, Motorco brings nationally touring acts to Durham along with hosting events such as  community game nights, brunches, film screenings and more.

The venue has a full bar with wine, liquor, a rotating selection of 12 draft beers and a long list of microbrews in bottles. Motorco is a private club, so patrons must either be a member or the guest of a member to enter. Lifetime membership is $3. Identification is required for entry. Shows and events are appropriate for all ages unless specifically stated. Visitors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Motorco does not serve food, but usually has a food truck parked in front.  It is also within short walking distance to numerous restaurants, bar and attractions including Man Bites Dog Theatre, Geer Street Garden, Durham Athletic Park, the Central Park skate park, The Durham Farmer's market and Cocoa Cinnamon.

Insider Tip: Every Sunday at noon, Motorco hosts a “Bloody Brunch,” which is a favored event with locals. Bloody Marys are available along with food trucks and free music.
