DURHAM, N.C. — Unscripted Durham is offering each customer "a shot for a shot" on Thursday nights at their rooftop bar.

Those who provide the bar with proof of a coronavirus vaccination will receive one free shot of alcohol.

The rooftop bar features a retro-inspired poolside lounge and offers guests gourmet snacks and craft cocktails. The Patio is open year-round from 4 to 9 p.m. on North Corcoran Street and has stunning views of downtown Durham.

Set in a downtown building dating from the 1960s, this retro-chic hotel is an 8-minute walk from the shops, restaurants and cultural venues at the landmark American Tobacco Campus, and 2 miles from both the Sarah P. Duke Gardens and Interstate 85

"Getting through this will continue to be a team effort. We’re happy to be in a position to show appreciation for all of our vaccination-eligible neighbors who have done their part to keep our community safe," said Paul Mensi, general manager of Unscripted Durham.

Masks are required at the bar when people are not actively eating or drinking.

Developers redesigned the old Jack Tar Motor Lodge in downtown Durham as the first location for the Unscripted Hotels brand, a new lifestyle brand and hospitality concept from the Dream Hotel Group.

The hotel features 74 guest rooms and suites and five food and beverage venues along with the expansive rooftop pool deck and lounge.
