Stanley’s living room
The smallest bar on this list is possibly Stanley’s Saloon, owned by Travis Harper, who says he prides himself on “bringing all the best people in Kinston” to his home. It opened in early October. The building may be small, but there is a large patio at the back. Stanley’s serves beer and spirits. He said there was nothing planned in terms of special celebrations, but said customers would likely provide the party. Because they serve spirits, a member can login as a guest or you can sign up for $ 1.
“My theme is ‘Craft cocktails with a story’. »I serve cocktails, spirits, beer and wine. I traveled the world for all of my twenties. (I’ve been to) over 14 countries in the past five years and all 50 states. I have sampled drinks and beers everywhere and lived in LA. Traveled in South East Asia for 3.5 months and had to return to Kinston due to COVID, ”he said. Pictures all over the wall tell the story of his travels. Stanley’s will open at 5 p.m. Their address is 304 Mitchell St.
