The Crunkleton

WHY HERE: In college towns, most bars are better known for having beer-sticky floors than for oozing class. In Chapel Hill, The Crunkleton’s long, stately barroom, bow-tie-clad barkeeps and nuanced drink menu defy all of these stereotypes. And it’s always packed.

WHY NOW: Owner and barman Gary Crunkleton (yes, that’s his real name) is the bar’s cocktail-crafting wizard and always convivial host, reimagining Southern favorites with a local accent.
