Long time establishment that's provided the setting for many memories. Good place to hang out on a sunny day and relax with your friends. Classic one of a kind college bar.

I live in Chapel Hill and have been here many times. Nice courtyard but strictly a college brew station. Reeks of stale beer and bathrooms are atrocious. There are much better bars up and down Franklin Street.

If you want to relive your college days, this is the place- very popular with UNC students, this bar offers every aspect of college vibe and fun. Not great with kids, although the outdoor space is very user-friendly and our kids have been there!

Dive bar but an icon in Chapel Hill. Have to get the cup. I go early to avoid the college crowd. Called "He's Not" by the locals.

I was told by several locals that "He's Not Here" was one bar I should visit, so I went there on a Friday night. There was a local band playing, but the main 'attraction' is the reasonably priced drinks & the conversation with other visitors.
