ABOUT FRANKLIN MOTORS

We're located on historic Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, NC, in the heart of the Midway District on the Chapel Hill - Carrboro line. As Chapel Hill's first and only beer garden, we've set the bar high. In addition to serving over 20 taps of seasonal brewed beer and ciders and a plethora of bottles and cans, we have a delicious menu of locally-sourced food served from on-site food truck, The Roquette at Franklin Motors.

Franklin Motors is perfect for events and gatherings. Learn more about private and catered events at franklin Motors by clicking here.

Swing by Franklin Motors with family and friends, grab a pint, some food, and enjoy our rooftop area or street level beer garden seating complete with a cozy fire pit on chilly Franklin Street evenings. We also serve a simple and delicious Sunday brunch menu from 10am-2pm.

"Love this spot. Nice selection of beers on tap, tasty food options from the food truck, and they've done a nice job transforming the space with lots of plants and vines that give the place a great feel. One of the best outdoor spaces in Carrboro/CH to hang out."

"We haven't even hosted our party here yet, but let me tell you...they understand customer service and worked with us at length so things are going to be just right. Instead of being inflexible and unfriendly, Alice was exceptionally friendly and eager to assist in our planning. 5/5 would recommend, can't wait to try all the food and drinks on Friday!"
