CarPool is now proudly located in Fairfax, VA after a 20-year run in Ballston, VA. The new, 7,839 square feet restaurant and bar at 12821 Fair Lakes Parkway (formerly occupied by Logan's Roadhouse), boasts 25 televisions, a huge beer selection, full bar, and great food. There are two large bar areas (24 taps each), a heated patio, and private rooms for parties. Not only is this the perfect environment for all sports fans but also for those interested in enjoying games. There are 4 pool tables, 4 dartboards, 3 shuffleboard tables, 2 skee ball machines, and 1 golden tee. If you’re not watching a game you can play one. The bar and restaurant are open seven days a week and look forward to serving the Fairfax community.
“Everything’s brand-new, and the building’s different. We’re just trying to create what we had there in Arlington,” says Mark Handwerger, owner of CarPool. “We have some of the bones, which are the pool tables, the bar top and that sort of stuff. We also have some of the—I’m hoping—heart and soul, which is the customers and obviously the staff. Many of the staff there had been there since opening night in 1995.”
For 20 years, CarPool, had entertained the Ballston community providing its patrons with quality service, food, sports, and most importantly a place where they can simply hangout and enjoy a good time with friends. “In this day and age, it’s a bar, a social place without an attitude,” Handwerger says. “It’s just good old-fashioned camaraderie.”
As the area grew busy and demand grew for more high rise offices and apartment buildings, CarPool relocated to Fairfax, VA where it hopes to replicate the great fun filled atmosphere previously enjoyed by many in the Ballston location. This is more than just a place that you come to eat as there are many activities planned which include plenty of sports leagues, Alumni sports clubs, and competitions.
“We are always looking for ways to entertain our patrons and keep up the lively atmosphere in our new location. So far this year we have teamed up with APA Pool leagues to host 8 ball league on Mondays. We continue our tradition of hosting the Penn State Alumni, Metro Washington, D.C. Chapter’s events. CarPool Sports League and FXA Adult Sports have come together to host a night (every Thursday) of awesome games, drinks, food, and competition! Teams will face off in 4 games for the title of The Ultimate FXA Bar League Champs this winter,” Says Jorge Carcamo, general manager. “Expect much more as we settle into our new home.”
