Outer Banks Bars

From outdoor recreation to indoor entertainment, the Outer Banks is a place where there’s something fun to do all day long. And there is no exception when it comes to your social sipping adventures. Whether you love kicking off the morning with mimosas, day drinking in an outdoor brewery or staying out late in the bars, there’s an Outer Banks drinking establishment waiting for you. Most Outer Banks bars are inside restaurants, but that trend has been changing over the past couple of years. Now there are more standalone breweries, bottle shops, tasting rooms, wineries, wine bars, distilleries and saloons that focus on beverages alone – and those are what you’ll find in this section. Stop into these Outer Banks bars for a drink or two, and you’re likely to meet likeminded folk and possibly enjoy live music or entertainment.

Outer Banks Bars at Outer Banks Breweries & Distilleries

Craft breweries and distilleries have popped up around the Outer Banks, each one with its own refreshing drink creations. It’s not only enlivening to taste the beverages right where they were created, but it’s also fun to experience the atmosphere that each brewery and distillery has created for their patrons, and, in some cases, their pets on the patio or in the yard. Stop in the taverns, tasting rooms and lounges at Outer Banks breweries and Outer Banks distilleries, and you’ll meet the makers as well as people who enjoy socializing in a good Outer Banks bar.
