After nearly 10 years of renovation efforts led by nonprofit Hostelling Arkansas Inc. and the City of Little Rock, the 1917 Craftsman-style building in MacArthur Park known as “Fire Station 2” will officially reopen as the Firehouse Hostel and Museum.

The building houses 36 twin-size bunk beds starting at $28/night, and an overnight stay there includes free continental breakfast, off-street parking, bedding and towels, storage lockers, wi-fi, a guest computer and a fully-equipped kitchen. 

The museum and hostel can be seen firsthand at the hostel's Locals Only Opening Party & Sleepover on Sept. 17, an all-day celebration featuring a Community Kids Fishing and Health Fair in MacArthur Park starting at 9 a.m., tours of the firefighting museum starting at 10 a.m., food trucks and drinks available for sale at 5 p.m. and live music at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, the grand opening continues with a free public celebration at noon Sunday, Sept. 18.

  • Review and slideshow: Chris Stapleton and Marty Stuart at Verizon Arena

    Don't get me wrong: Chris Stapleton is wildly accomplished and in complete command of his voice. He’s probably the closest thing, vocally, that we have to Chris Cornell on this earth, but somewhere there must be an unwritten rule that the headliner is to be afforded the luxury of a superboosted presence; something that lets the audience know, as I knew when my entire body began to rumble seismically upon his grand entrance, that things were cranking up to eleven, that we were “really gonna party now.”
