The Pittsboro Music Scene

Pittsboro may not yet be as well known as Raleigh, Durham, Carrboro & Chapel Hill for music, but it’s happening, and not just a little bit, a lot! Not only do we have a lot of live music seven days a week in downtown Pittsboro, Shakori Hills is just down the road in the gorgeous Chatham County countryside with several festivals a year! You will be surprised, and hopefully delighted. You can readily combine gift, thrift, art, books and antique shopping with live music every Pittsboro First Sunday! (Make Pittsboro your family destination on First Sundays each month.)


The Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store opened on August 17, 2012 in the space known previously as the General Store Cafe, at 39 West Street, just West of Courthouse Circle in the historic and artsy town known affectionately as ‘Circle City’.  Read more.

Local Ownership – Greg Lewis

Local owner Greg Lewis and his family completed significant work updating the restaurant and began the process of establishing a sustainable enterprise that strengthens the community, is a cultural and social center, and becomes a major draw for the town of Pittsboro and Chatham County. No small order, and well-on-track to fulfilling the promise.

Open for Brunch on Pittsboro 1st Sundays! 10:30 – 3:00

You’ll love coming to Pittsboro’s downtown for First Sundays. Start with brunch at the Roadhouse, and starting at noon, the town opens up with street vendors, children’s play area, bands, events and food and drink in some of the stores.
