Yup, there’s a new saloon in Nippertown.
The Barrel Saloon – located at 942 Broadway in Albany at the former site of Club Matrix – is celebrating its official grand opening this weekend with plenty of festivities. Billed as a “rock and roll country bar,” the Barrel features food, drink specials and lots of giveaways throughout the weekend.
And like any urban honky tonk worthy of its name, the Barrel Saloon will be featuring live music as well. Skeeter Creek kicks things off at 9pm tonight, while Jet Crash Billy steps into the spotlight at 10pm on Saturday.
Slip on your boots, grab your hat and come on down…
