Mellow Mushroom Durham - The Story

Inspired by the Durham Bulls Baseball Stadium, the artwork in our restaurant conveys a “take me out to the ballpark” vibe. The red brick building is a renovated 100-year-old tobacco warehouse. At the entrance, distinct and colorful, giant mushroom statues welcome guests. Red brick lines the high walls inside and out. A large open floor plan, a full bar, and a welcoming patio area with an outdoor bar make this the best place to hang out and enjoy great pizza.
