The Station is a historic landmark older even than the name “Carrboro.” Built in 1882, it was the focal point of the town--then called West End. The space, which originally housed the local train depot, also holds a place in music history: Elizabeth Cotton was inspired to write her famous folk song, Freight Train, in the early 1900s as tribute to the trains that stopped in Carrboro, which she could hear at night from the bedroom of her childhood home. It’s also the location that R. E. M. chose to play their first show outside of their home state of Georgia in 1980. In the past century, the space has been home to an assortment of businesses, only to come full circle back to its musical beginnings.

The bar will be open Monday - Friday from 5:00 PM to 2:00 AM and on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 2:00 AM, and we will host live music, DJ events, and other unique acts every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. In addition to our regularly scheduled events, we are booking quarterly Secret Shows, featuring bands that you won’t want to miss, which will be announced the day of the event. You can already mark your calendar for our first Secret Show on Friday, April 22nd.
