We are no longer able to offer Drive-Up Movies at NoRa.  We appreciate all of you who came and spent an evening with us during the pandemic for a relaxing, fun night out.

We are working to see if we can offer some version of this in the future.  We will let you know if we're able to show movies in a safe and comfortable environment.

Wine, beer, cider and ...

Shortly before the shutdown, NoRa had introduced wine and beer to our expanding menu.  Based on feedback from our wine tastings plus some recommendations from customers, we have expanded our selection.  Many Red, White, Rose and Sparkling options available by the glass or the bottle!

Wine not your thing, how about…


We are proud to support our favorite local brewery – Durham’s Ponysaurus!  In addition to SEVEN (7) Ponysaurus brews, we are currently highlighting the world's greatest beer - Guinness - along with a North Carolina favorite, Highland Gaelic Ale.



We love our locals!  Come try our current cider option from Bull City Cider.


White Claw

For those looking for something a little lighter, we offer a variety of White Claw flavors.  If you're feeling adventurous, you can be part of testing group for "Hard Italian Sodas" as we try out an adult version of our popular drink.
