Cat's Cradle to open back bar

Posted by on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 12:45 PM

Carrboro is growing; so shall the Cat's Cradle.

Cradle owner Frank Heath has begun work on a small back bar for the longtime Carrboro venue that will serve Cradle overflow and non-concertgoers. Steve Balcom of The Splinter Group, which handles publicity work for the Cradle, confirmed the news Friday afternoon.

According to Balcom, the freestanding bar—which does not have a name or an opening date yet—will, unlike the East Main Street venue, serve liquor drinks. It will be located directly behind Fleet Feet Sports, near the Cradle's back smoking patio.

"If you want to chill out in between bands, if you want to talk to somebody, that's what that space is all about," Balcom says. 

Balcom adds that while there is no opening date yet, he expects the bar will be completed sometime this year.
