Want to test your skills on a mechanical bull? Then head down to Moosehead Saloon and try
not to get thrown off! Bull rides are free on Wednesdays and $5 on every other night, but if you bring a copy of Best of Carolina you can get a free ride any night of the week!

Moosehead Saloon is the main country bar in Five Points, but they play a diverse range of music so you will have something to dance to no matter your music taste.

Moosehead has the largest indoor capacity of all the bars in Five Points so expect to see many college students hanging out there with their friends on the weekends! However, the long bar means there is no need to shove your way through people to get a drink.

One of Moosehead’s specialty drinks is the “Shark Attack” bucket. This drink comes in a pitcher and is an electric blue; whether you want to share is up to you!

Regardless of whether you’re looking to test your skills on the bull, dance to country music or enjoy drinks with friends, Moosehead Saloon is the place to go in Five Points!
