Isaac Hunter’s COVID19 Staff Relief Fund

Isaac Hunter's Tavern is the historic tavern that started this great city. Without our famous Cherry Bounce or great staff, the politicians would never have fallen in love with Joel Lane's land and moved the capital. Although we are not the original location, or the original staff (surprise, surprise) , the legend of Isaac Hunter's lives on.  We want to continue to do so during this time of crisis.  We take pride in being a small business and our staff is our family.  With the latest news, Governor Roy Cooper has declared all bars to be shut down until the COVID-19 virus gets handled.  

We are asking for our amazing community and neighbors to help out and donate to help relieve some of the stress of financial hardship for our staff. If you are one of our regulars, or even if you just share a fond memory of time spent with us over our ten years, please consider donating. We put on a lot of events here at Isaac Hunter's and we wear many hats. We love being a part of this community and being able to sling you the best drinks possible.  If you are a regular for Sunday Karaoke, Sub Rosa, Thursday's BBQ & Bourbon, or even just a friendly neighbor please help keep our staff on their feet! We promise a MASSIVE party to give back to everyone once this is all said and done.

For those who donate $100+ :
$100 -  Mug Club Membership w/ Personal Mug
$250 - Framed Picture on Wall
$500 - Bar Chair w/ Personal Plaque
$1000 - Urinal Plaque - name it after your best friend, or your worst enemy!
$2500 - Cocktail named after your legendary ass that stays on the menu for life.

Any money raised past our goal will be donated to the Triangle Restaurant Relief Fund!
