Swaim’s Grocery, A Neighborhood Pub

Right across the parking lot from Washington Perk is Swaim’s Grocery, a neighborhood pub. Swaim’s was built in 1939 as Swaim’s Fine Foods, and was a grocery store until the ’60s. There’s a dartboard, a foosball table, a TV, and usually a dog or two running around (it’s been a dog-friendly and smoke-free bar since the day the doors opened).

Our beers are in bottles: about 40 microbrews and the standard domestics — Bud, Yuengling, PBR. The wine selection includes a couple of reds and a couple of whites.

It’s known as a laid-back place with laid-back people from the neighborhood. And the building has gained a reputation as more than just a bar. This is a nice, quiet place to come meet. Someone once said it’s like going to someone’s living room, but you don’t know everyone.


Swaim’s is located at 232 West Acadia Avenue Winston-Salem, NC, 27127
