The Junction Salon & Bar
The Junction Salon & Bar officially opened its doors on February 14, 2012 at its new home at The Raleigh Depot in historic downtown Raleigh. While offering a full range of salon services, The Junction Salon & Bar offers a variety of cocktails, beers, and wines. The location itself is a little-known slice of history – the Freight Depot was built in 1912 for the Southern Railway, and the original crane used to move freight now services at the iconic red gateway to the property. The charming cobblestone parking lot itself is paved with the original Belgian paver stones. The Depot was rehabilitated in 2003-2004 by the North Carolina Railroad Company and is now alive with local Raleigh businesses. We are excited to see The Junction Salon & Bar creating memories of its own in Suite 114.

Working with local bars and restaurants in the community, Green City Bottles reclaims beer, wine, and liquor bottles and turns them into tumblers, candles, and even lamps! Their products, while not only being eco-friendly, are stylish and guaranteed to be a conversation starter.
