About & FAQ
Record shop by day. Live music venue by night. Raleigh's home for all things music featuring national and locally touring bands and an extensive vinyl record selection.
We love great music, great people, and great drinks at The Pour House Music Hall & Record Shop. We have been Raleigh’s home for live music since 1997 and are focused on bringing you an eclectic mixture of the best local and nationally touring bands. Our 30 drafts rotate monthly and feature an extensive selection of the best beer North Carolina has to offer.
In November 2019, The Pour House converted the second level of the venue into a record shop that features both new and used vinyl. The record shop is open 11am-6pm Thursday-Sunday. The record shop also features a full bar with 5 draft beers, and once covid restrictions lift, we will resume free live performances, album release parties, listening parties, record signings and more in the record shop.
