Calling all Pierogi-loving night owls

Somebody recently asked us why things seem to quiet down early around AVL on certain nights of the week. They were psyched when we told them where they could meet up with fellow night owls until 2am EVERY single night of the week- that would be The barrelhouse in North Asheville. This cozy neighborhood hang is the perfect place to catch local live music, play trivia or test drive your latest song on Original Music Open Mic Night. They've got a great selection of drinks AND food, including their famous scratch-made pierogies!
