Opened in 1992, Local 506 is an all-ages rock club in downtown Chapel Hill. The 506 is a showroom and a full bar, providing audiences the opportunity to see up-and-coming touring musicians and local bands in a simultaneously accessible and professional musical setting. Located on West Franklin Street, the 506 is conveniently within walking distance to many of Chapel Hill and Carrboro’s restaurants and bars, and a great location for either catching a show or enjoying a full night out in Midway. 


Parking can be a bit tricky unless you’re familiar with the area. A helpful parking guide for Chapel Hill is here. In general, street parking is free after 6pm Monday-Saturday, and completely free on Sunday. Keep an eye out for UNC lots that are often free after 6pm as well. There is also a parking deck next to the Hampton Inn in Carrboro that is free and within walking distance to the club.
