CarPool Sports Bar Returns to Ballston After Four-Year Absence
Sports bar and grill CarPool is returning to its original home of the Ballston neighborhood in Arlington, VA after a four-year relocation to Fair Lakes in Fairfax County. The new location, arranged by KLNB principal Kim Stein, is slated to open next month at 900 N. Glebe Rd.
Located less than a half-mile from its original address, CarPool’s new 6,382-square-foot space will offer billiards, pinball, craft cocktails, live sports, and an extensive draft beer selection. And like the original Ballston location, customers will have large garage doors that will now open onto a sizeable outdoor patio.
The space will be able to accommodate up to 300 people, and host private parties of all sizes. Patrons will also enjoy an expanded menu, courtesy of a large, second-generation kitchen space.
CarPool president Mark Handwerger said his partnership with KLNB is just beginning and is already discussing possible future projects with Stein.
