Looking for space to host a special event? Southern Rail is the place for you!

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Carrboro, we personally invite you to visit our location which is easily adjustable to fit the needs of your special event. With many spaces available for differing uses, we have successfully housed outdoor weddings, reception dinners, corporate functions, and political rallies. We have also been a popular choice of venue for birthday parties, graduation celebrations, and holiday functions. Whether you choose from our buffet, light appetizer, or wedding menus or prefer a menu planned around your taste, we are always ready to assist in helping you achieve your envisioned event.




The beer garden has the room to accommodate large parties with the southern hospitality of a back yard atmosphere, while the back bar car with adjoining side patio offers a venue for a smaller scale yet secluded celebration with private bar. The Station, which is our largest bar area, has audio/visual capabilities, a stage with full PA system, a DJ booth, and can house comfortable seating for a catered dinner of sixty.


For more information or to reserve space for your event, please contact us and select "Catering and Banquet Inquiries" on the contact form, and we will be in touch with you to see how we can help make your event a huge success!
