*Great* late night spot.. When the hours are late, FUSE is our favorite spot to go to in Chapel Hill. Wonderfully understated & cozy decor, done up with very warm, subdued almost film noir-ish lighting. The bar itself is decent, though somewhat on the small side (be aware that this is a local hangout, ok, so don't expect to sit your college or yuppie ass down at the bar, wave money around, and expect to be served immediately; this is Chapel Hill: be patient, ease into it, & go with the flow -- people are *really* nice, if you are too). This is a great place to go with a group of people for conversation and drinks, and yet it has little nooks and crannies to escape to with someone you want to get to know better.
Stay away.. Greasy, boring late-20s hipster crowd. Awkward, standoffish bartenders. Smelly. Tasteless decor. Why even consider going here when there are so many other places to go at night on Franklin St.?
No Drinks for you!.
Be prepared to wait a long time at this place if you are not a local or don't come to the place a lot. The bar scene is pretty good here, but my god the bartenders are kind of rude, or just ignore you to talk to their friends. Oh don't be confused, they know your there... They just have better things to do then bartend, like talk to their friends or serve other people. Do not be surprise if some one cuts you, and gets a drink before you. It kind of unfortunate cause the food is really good.
So in conclusion, food is good, place is ok, good luck getting a drink in a timely manner or in a friendly manner.

Food Is DELISH.... Bar Atmosphere!!!.
I was so surprised to walk in here and to see a little bar, as you walk in the door, nestled right in with the small restaurant area...
The food was incredible with fusion twists all over the place! WOW is all I can say for flavor!
There were only 3 of us from The Triangle Singles Dining Out Group (Meetup) but we really enjoyed ourselves... Good thing we didn't have more people, because they wouldn't have been able to accommodate us... The place was kind of run down, but the pictures on the wall made it kind of whimsical, and the waiter was attentive and happy to please...
No matter what the place looked like, the food was TO DIE for! Go, and find out for yourself!
