The Brown Coat Pub and Theatre is a veritable catch-all for entertainment in the heart of Downtown Wilmington, with an ever-changing array of live theater, local concerts, and karaoke, which is complemented by a full bar with plenty of cool and casual drinks. Located on Grace Street, a small side street in the heart of Downtown Wilmington that’s close to the waterfront, area explorers can settle in on any given night and be treated to a big dose of local talent and good drinks.
The basic exterior belies a cavernous but modest-sized pub which includes a small stage for performances, and a cool bar with mismatched and theater-inspired décor. The events held at the Brown Coat Pub and Theatre change regularly, but patrons can expect a good half dozen of annual live theater productions, as well as local bands and performances who frequent the on-site stage. The pub is best known for its live and regular karaoke, which is spearheaded by the locally famous “Captain Karaoke,” as well as it unique niche screenings, (like Dr. Who Wednesdays), and its regular drink specials on unique concoctions like the Ectoplasm Shot or the B.E. King. From live theater to a night out with friends, Brown Coat Pub and Theatre is a unique and always entertaining addition to Wilmington’s cool downtown scene.
