Who We Are

Coffee. Beer. Wine. Whiskey. Carefully curated and thoughtfully served.

We opened The Oak House Durham in 2019 with one goal in mind – pour great drinks in a spot where everyone in our thriving Durham community feels welcome.

We are committed to serving the highest quality products we are capable of offering. That commitment has given us the chance to partner with a long list of small Durham and North Carolina businesses to source beautifully crafted goods from our ever-rotating draft beer list, to our coffee and loose leaf teas and matcha, down to our lounge furniture.
