PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SALVAGE STATION:
The Salvage Station (468 Riverside Drive) is proud to announce that its doors will officially open on June 1st at 2pm. The full service bar and restaurant venue located along the French Broad River will be open to the public five days a week and available for rent to private parties and events. The venue will also serve as a hub for live music featuring local, regional, and national artists. Upcoming events include The Hip Abduction with Les Amis on Friday, June 3rd (free show), and an official Grand Opening Party on June 10th.
The new venture, developed by Danny McClinton and co-owned with Jimi Rentz, Patrick Huss, and Matt Ragaller, will incorporate many of the food service and outdoor traits that make Asheville great. “We will have the ability to serve delicious food and drink options and also provide a family-friendly outdoor experience for all of our guests. Plus, live music will play a huge role in our upcoming events calendar,” said McClinton.
The food menu will feature a range of small, shareable Asheville street food items and full plate offerings including tacos, sliders, and house-smoked Appalachian BBQ served with Southern sides. The kitchen will be led by Josh Heald, formerly of Barley’s Taproom, and Gwendolyn Hageman from Artisan Cafe. The full-service bar will have liquor, can beer, wine, and hand-crafted cocktails.
The venue will be open to the public unless otherwise posted Wednesday-Thursday from 2pm – 12am, Friday-Saturday from 12pm-2am, and Sunday from 12pm-10pm. Only certified service animals are allowed. The live music calendar can be found SalvageStation.com/events.
