Proof of Vaccination Required for indoor seating.

Over the course of the pandemic, we have kept a keen eye on COVID numbers, the latest research, the safety of our team and the concerns from our community. With the increased spread of the Delta variant, we are joining other Triangle businesses by requiring proof of vaccination starting August 14th at 5 pm for lounge guests at Corpse Reviver.  Patio seating will remain first come first served for all. 


Please have your vaccine card available in the form of the physical card, a copy of your card, or a phone image of your card. Vaccine cards and photo IDs will be checked outside the door prior to entering the bar area. In addition, we are still following Durham’s mask mandate requiring a mask of all guests when they are not seated.  


We value each person who comes through our doors and ask for your continued support and understanding as we implement this latest safety measure to ensure the health of our vaccinated staff and vulnerable community members.

Covid Safety Protocols

These are the extra steps we have implemented:

  • We installed two portable hospital-grade HVAC air purification systems.

    • Both units are HEPA Filtration rated at the 0.3 micron level and 99.99% efficiency

    • Each unit cleans the air in the entire interior lounge every 12 minutes 

    • One of the units also has the extra protection of interior UVC lights that are continuously shining on harmful organisms purifying the air with high efficiency. 

  • Hard surfaces and restrooms are cleaned and disinfected every thirty minutes 

  • All our team has been fully vaccinated for our and your safety

  • Durham County has restarted the mask mandate (Aug 9). We are requiring all guests to be masked when not seated.

  • Proof of vaccination is required for all guests sitting in the lounge area. 


At Corpse Reviver, our goal is to be a place where you can relax, enjoy a cocktail and "Revive your spirit."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you have patio seating? 

    Yes, we do! The patio is heated. It is not covered.

  • Are you kid and/or dog friendly? 
    This is a cocktail lounge that is part of a distillery so our requirements are a bit different. Please note that we are 21 and older only and can only allow service dogs.


  • Do you serve food?
    We do! We have light bites available including our house whipped goat cheese, our special recipe of sweet and spicy assorted nuts and of course, marinated olives.
