Discover Durham’s Ninth Street,
where you’ll find a little bit of everything! 

Eats, errands, and eclectic gifts – everything you need in a unique, walkable district with a rich history and a friendly neighborhood feel.

This colorful West Durham street has roots that go all the way back to Durham’s early days of textiles and tobacco. Today, its modern amenities are matched with a strong tradition of independent business to create a vibrant culture.

Spend your Saturday afternoon on Ninth Street – drop off your dry cleaning, send a package, get a haircut, grab some groceries, and then relax over drinks or coffee beneath the shade of an awning. Our businesses are as independent and eclectic as our clientele. So, while you’re here, get to know your neighbors or make a few friends while you’re in town.

Referred to by the Herald-Sun as “Durham’s Greenwich Village,” Ninth Street is a cure for your shopping-mall blues. This is a street with character, a street with soul.
