Spending a few hours drinking at a picnic table under string lights at Parts and Labor is practically a Durham rite of passage. This indoor/outdoor space is more bar than restaurant, but it’s definitely worth coming hungry. Cheeseburger sliders and a soft pretzel with beer cheese cover the bar food bases, but the menu is also filled with interesting (and often vegetarian-friendly) things like eggplant chapati and beef bulgogi tacos. And if you want to keep the night going, head right across the street to Fullsteam Brewery, where you’ll find one of the most extensive beer selections in Durham.
