.. Carrollton Station - Nestled on the Corner of Dublin and Willow Streets, one block off of the S. Carrollton streetcar line in New Orleans, Carrollton Station has managed to establish itself as not only one of the city's best neighborhood bar rooms, but also as one of its outstanding live music venues. The name, for those not familiar with the landscape, is derived from the streetcar barn located just across Willow St., and the building, built in the early 1900s, has housed many tenants, including a grocery store and even a brothel.
Open 7 days a week, Carrollton Station has everything that a great New Orleans tavern needs. 12 draft and over 40 bottled beers along with a full array of liquor choices and specialty drinks gives patrons many flavorful options. The casual atmosphere and rustic decor brings people in the door, and the reasonable drink prices keeps them there. Under new ownership, a backyard patio was built in May of 2002, and in February of 2004 a full service grill was added.
Musically, Carrollton Station began featuring live shows in earnest in the mid-eighties after a patron recommended bluesman Andy J. Forest. Since then "The Station" has been a showcase for some of New Orleans finest musicians, particularly in the blues, acoustic, and rock genres. The club has played host to such national acts as The Indigo Girls, Guy Clark, and Mason Ruffner, as well as local favorites like The Continental Drifters, Tommy Malone, Dash Rip Rock, and Paul Sanchez. The club regularly hosts Singer/Songwriter nights which features established performers, as well as up and coming talent.
The traditions and good times at Carrollton Station keep rollin' on. In any given week the bar continues to present quality live music along with some of the best eating and drinking in town. So again, what is Carrollton Station?.................. Simply put, it's a great bar.
Carrollton Station Foundation - The purpose of the Carrollton Station Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the musicians of New Orleans who have been adversely affected by the recent hurricanes of 2005.
The intention is to rebuild the music community of the City Of New Orleans by offering the money to said musicians to replace the equipment and instruments that have been lost to these storms.
Our method of raising money for this purpose is to sell a CD that is a compilation of songs that were written and performed by New Orleans singer/songwriters and musicians about the city and the devastation it has sustained in the wake of these recent events.
