Deep South The Bar Turns 10 This Weekend


Deep South The Bar celebrates 10 years with a special weekend celebration- October 12th- 14th. Admission is FREE all weekend as the bar hosts Kick-a-verse and Branan Murphy on Thursday, Handsome Foxes, Unifier, and I Was Totally Destroying It on Friday; and Kasey Tyndall with guests the Open Mic All-Stars on Saturday. Plus drink specials, treats & surprises. 

Deep South The Bar has partnered with Raleigh's own Oak & Dagger Public House on a one-time-only beer to celebrate the anniversary. This limited edition American Pale Ale will only be available while supplies last (on draft at both Deep South The Bar and Oak & Dagger) starting on the anniversary weekend, and is appropriately titled Deep South The Beer.

Since the tenth anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of tin or aluminum; Deep South suggests you come out and raise a cold one with them!

“Ten years.  They tell me that’s like 72 in bar years.  We’re so thrilled to have survived this long.  It’s a tough business but it speaks volumes about our music culture to have supported a small live music venue for 10 years. And I’m really thankful to be a part of this great community of musicians and music fans. Raleigh rocks!”  Dave Rose – owner/founder Deep South The Bar.
