Gary Crunkleton poses at his bar, The Crunkleton, on West Franklin Street.
It looks like Durham isn't the only one getting love from Southern Living. The Crunkleton, one of Chapel Hill's private clubs that prides itself on delectable cocktails, was picked as one of the South's Best Bars in the magazine's February issue, calling The Crunkleton "a serious bar without a trace of attitude."
If you're planning to make a weekend stop at this local gem, Southern Living recommends "The Aviation," which has maraschino and violet liquers.
Congratulations to The Crunkleton for such an accolade. We'll just count this as one more reason for why North Carolina is the best part of the South.
