Perfect Smaller Bar

Its easily my favorite hole-in-the-wall in Chapel Hill. its a great place to duck into with a few friends or on a date. The bartenders (especially Rose) are amazing (Doug and Tim too). I almost hesitate to write a review because I don't want every one going there! But, yeah, totally worth it, good times, good drinks, and good specials.

Great Little Bar!!

My friend and I stumbled into the Blue Horn Lounge randomly one Saturday night as it was POURING and we just needed to get inside. We were EXTREMELY pleasantly surprised. Rose, the bartender, was amazing, and we had so much fun. If you're looking to go out in Chapel Hill, this place comes highly recommended.

Great bar, service/atmosphere depend on bartender. . .

Great small bar. Service depends on the bartender. Doug is the best. The female bartender isn't the friendliest and you'll have to compete with her TV (loud!). But the owners are so nice and the bathroom is seriously the best in in town - and no smoking too!

hidden gem for live music


what a great place!! if you're looking for friendly service, and a tremendous live music experience, it's a must see. Family atmosphere, and a place to really feel like you're part of the bar family.

really the best place for music in Chapel Hill.

easily 5 stars

BHL is a very special place for many reasons... we go there to hang out with Doug, the most awesome bartender who can mix a mean drink or recommend the perfect beer for your hops preference, and to see Steve & Marshall, the friendliest and most genuine business men in Chapel Hill, and to hear incredibly talented musicians fill the air (with no cover charge, are you sure this is Franklin St!?) night after night, and last but not least just to hang with other folks like us who enjoy a cozy atmosphere & share an appreciation for fine tile work. Since NY Eve, we also go there to celebrate the spot where we got engaged at the stroke of midnight & officially started our lives together. Bottom line - BHL is cool, an unexpected gem of a joint, a place where we've made lifelong memories & friends.

Best Bar In The Triangle Area

This is the finest bar I have ever been to. I always have a great time. The uniqueness of this bar starts when you walk through the front door and the whole entire staff, including the owners know your name and your drink preference. They have live music every night of the week and these bands only have a very small place to set up and play, but the creative owners make it work even if a guitar player is standing in the doorway, standing on a bench and a harmonica player is sitting in the middle of the bar on a barstool. I would not go to any other bar in Chapel Hill and If it's closed I go home! It is a fabulous bar to go to and trust me I've been to them all.

Love it! A little Nashville in North Carolina!

Atmosphere is sophisticated and quaint...but perfect size. Great staff....

Wonderful and intimate live music!


I live in Nashville and it reminds me of home... will definitely return on my next visit to North Carolina.

Would absolutely recommend for girls/guy night stop...great for dates...and just hanging out with an old friend.

TIP: Be sure to try the Rose martini... made by Rose the bartender!

Enjoy!!

FRANKLIN STREET CLUB ROCKS

BEST CLUB IN CHAPEL HILL BY FAR. NO KIDS. GREAT LIVE MUSIC AND NEVER A COVER. GREAT DRINKS, FREE LIVE MUSIC ALMOST EVERY NIGHT AND NON SMOKING UNTIL LATE NIGHT.

COOL PLACE AND THE HIPPEST VIBE I'VE SEEN IN A WHILE. CHECK IT OUT YOU'LL LOVE IT.

No SMOKING INDOORS NOW MAKES THIS PLACE EVEN BETTER. SMOKERS SEATS ARE RESERVED WHICH IS COOL BUT THE PALCE IS REALLY ON TOP OF WHAT PEOPLE WANT. CHECK IT OUT YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Blue Horn Lounge is our second home

My fiance and I have been coming to Blue Horn for over a year now. While a good chunk of our money has gone to this bar over the past year, it is well worth it. The kindness that we are treated with each time is great! My fiance gets a beer each time and it is waiting on him when he gets to his chair, I am a little more complicated and not always ordering the same drinks..haha. I have made awesome friends with the bartenders and the owners. Marshall and Steve make the Blue Horn what it is. I thought that the bar wouldn't be the same after they bought it...i was wrong, it is better than ever! We only go to another bar if we have a friend that wants to, otherwise, count us out. Not only is the service great, but the drinks are great too. I would rather pay $7 for a dirty martini with blue cheese olives (yes, I said Blue Cheese), and have the drink made beautifully, then pay $5 elsewhere, and absolutely hate it...wouldn't you? The live bands are always different and bring in a great crowd. Open mic night on Monday's is always great too. Then in football season, they have the games..what's not to love. They know my name, and knew it the first time they met me. I can't wait till they open the 2nd store! Stop in the bar and see why it is so great, don't just take my word for it...$1 memberships, and they sell really cute girl and guy t-shirts! As I said, this is my second home, and I truly mean that..they are all like family.

Take me back to Austin, TX --LIVE MUSIC ANY DAY!!!

This was my 2nd visit to the Blue Horn and I felt like I was back on 6th Street in Austin, TX. David Spencer's Band was unbelievabel!!!! I could have sat there all night. It was genuine and real music that everyone enjoyed. The Blue Horn has live musc on a regular basis and it if I didn't live in Raleigh, I'm sure it's the place you'd find me the most. I love the Blue Horn!!...Great people, Great drinks, and a GREAT place to have a relaxed, fun evening with friends. The owners are wonderful and they make an effeort talk to each and every one that walks through their doors. You immediately feel like you've been going there forever. (Good luck trying to find that kind of hospitality in the local bars and clubs). The bartenders do an outstanding job making sure everyone is taken care of and they're professional but very attentive at the same time. I believe the Payne brothers have definitely tapped in to a unique venue that many of us have been looking for.
