Ballard Station to serve its last drink this Thursday

The Ballard Station will close its doors permanently this week to make way for the construction of a new 238-unit apartment building planned for the northeast corner of 24th Ave NW and NW Market St.

Ballard Station co-owner Jesse Young tells My Ballard that he’s “truly sad” to lose the amazing location, but that it’s been the people that really make the Station home.

“We are so thankful for the Ballard community’s support, especially as we navigated the challenges of the pandemic,” Young said in an email to My Ballard. “Looking ahead, we sincerely hope to raise a glass with the folks of Ballard again soon.”

The Station opened as the Ballard Station Public House 10 years ago, and Young took over in 2016, renaming it just the Ballard Station.

“Over the next week, we are focused on celebrating with this incredible community and recognizing the great work of our Ballard Station team.”

Tonight (Tuesday, Sept. 6) the Station will host their last trivia night at 7 p.m. On Wednesday there will be live music with Ballard local Jason Riemath at 8 p.m., and Thursday will be their final farewell night from 4 p.m. to close.
