You'll have to look for it but if you are looking for true local bar without all the fancy frills, Lula's is the place. Mostly locals because tourists either can't find it or are skeptical of the entrance. This is a BAR, don't go looking...More

Bartender not adding appropriate amounts. Yes, their bottles have pour spouts used to controlled flow, but bartender must not put his finger over the tip of the spout. He must actually allow liquid to flow through it. Obviously, our bartender Saturday night was making up...More

This was a very nice pub to come across the streets of downtown Wilmington on a busy night. It's very quaint with a few tables and pool/ fooze ball tables to use. Drinks were inexpensive and food was good at a decent price too.

They have Cards Against Humanity, a full bar, music, and a friendly bartender. I don't need to expand any further. Go there and experience the cave.

I'd been here before on a Haunted Pub crawl and brought some friends visiting from out of town down to Lula's for a drink. I told them about the pub crawl and the history of the pub as I'd learned it from our tour guide....More
