About The Red Room


Kinston, NC has become the spot to be in Eastern NC. With Mother Earth Brewing, The Chef & Farmer Restaurant, and now, The Red Room Music Venue. The Red Room has become a destination in Eastern NC for the music scene. Hosting some of the biggest names in the music industry, The Red Room is the perfect spot to see the best local musicians as well as the stars of tomorrow.

The Red Room is set in two old buildings in downtown Kinston. The back building was owned by Jesse W. Grainger. He brought tobacco back to this area after the Civil War by distributing the seeds to farmers and building the first warehouse after the war. The Front Red Room area was owned by a Mr. Blalock in 1882 and was a grocery before it was the Goodman seed and feed store. By 1958 it was a furniture store, and sometime in the 1980’s it was The Goodman law office. Now The Red Room is open as a music venue. We hope you come and have fun in Kinston.
