Cherry Street Station


Cherry Street Station
491 N Cherry Street Ext
Wallingford Center, CT

Cherry Street Station has been a Rock/Metal bar for 15 years. Great sound, great bands, cheap drinks and a laid back atmosphere make us the premier spot for all bands.


  • Cherry Street Station is a bar. Yes, the train does go by there. It’s not huge so it’s an awesome place to see a show. You walk in and the stage is right to your right. It’s level to the street so loading in is a piece of cake. There is a parking lot right in front which is much appreciated considering parking is such an issue with a lot of venues in more populated areas.
  • Past the stage you walk up a few steps and you’re at the bar. The view from there is great. Renovations are going to happen soon where a wall will be knocked down so that from every seat at the bar you can see the stage. Right now the performing area is level with the ground but a raised stage will be built soon.
  • Cherry Street Station has a pool table and Coral Aquariums and one of those enormous flat screen tv’s! There is even an outdoor area part of the bar where the smokers can drink! Come check it out!
  • Dennis, the owner, runs the place himself with some help sometimes. He is a really great guy. He’s very open to all kinds of music. He’s not the kind of venue owner that you want to avoid during the night because he’s going to be a jerk to you or complain about something. Instead you just want to hang out with him because he’s a really nice guy. He’s super laid back and just has a good time.
  • Every show has a professional sound man and everything always sounds great. Everything gets miked and every band does a sound check before they go on. I’m telling you guys, this place is GREAT!!! It might a little bit of a drive for some people but honestly, it’s worth it. I’ve never been to a show there where I have not had a good time. I just can’t say enough good things about it.
  • Cherry Street Station is just such a GEM that everyone who goes to see a show there will remember it for a long time!

If you are coming from I-91 South towards New Haven/New York! First you merge onto CT-15 South/ Wilbur Cross Parkway via Exit 17. Then you take the US-5 Exit -Exit 66- toward Wallingford / Meriden. When you get ON Route 5 at EXIT 66 you’ll come to a light. Take a left there. THAT’S NORTH COLONY ROAD / US-5 Go 1.6 miles, you’ll see a WALMART on your left, and then you will see a RITE AID on your left. Directly across from the RITE AID on your right is N PLAINS HWY which is really a side street. Take that right and go over the train tracks. You will see the back of the Cherry Street Station Building. Take a left onto N Cherry Street Ext. and another left into the parking lot and you’re THERE!!!
