JUST IN: CarPool to open new Ballston location tomorrow

After a four year hiatus from Arlington, CarPool will again start pouring beers in Ballston tomorrow.

The new CarPool at 900 N. Glebe Road — in the Virginia Tech building, next to Ballston Local — will open at 4 p.m. Thursday, owner Mark Handwerger tells ARLnow.

Though delayed a month or two by supply chain issues, the opening will mark the return of the popular local watering hole, which closed its former Fairfax Drive location in 2017 ahead of a redevelopment. Between then and earlier this year it operated a location in the Fair Lakes area of Fairfax County.

CarPool’s new 6,400-square-foot space, which was formerly occupied by Greene Turtle and then Bistro 1521, will feature familiar retro decorations, including antique gas pumps outside the entrance, along with billiards tables, dart boards, pinball machines, lots of TVs, plenty of beer taps, and garage doors leading to an outdoor patio space.
