Your New Favorite
Neighborhood Spot!

We have discovered a unique space unlike any other in Raleigh. Named after the “bowstring-trusse” ceilings famous in the 1920s, we converted an old Gulf Oil crude barrel storage garage into a space with tables, games, and a large service bar.

Bowstring Pizza Bus

Made with fresh hand-rolled dough and homemade pizza sauce, we cook a NY-style pizza that has a classic taste with a crispy bottom crust. Enjoy it along with a cold beverage on one of our two patios or large grassy "reward", outfit with picnic tables and yard games.
