“Moderation is a fatal ting. Nothing succeeds like excess.” – Oscar Wilde

With Wilde’s wise words in mind, we decided to highlight the Hudson Valley hotspots that offer the best in abundance when it comes to nightlife’s libations and vibrations.

Tired of your go-to brews? Branch out at The Hop in Beacon, which boasts a selection of over 150 craft beers by the bottle or can for retail, plus a rotating list of nine craft beers available by the tasting or the growler. Not sure what to try? Their beer nerds-in-waiting will steer you right.

For those who like their beer on tap, there’s Draught, a new Beacon bar with 20 taps regulated by one of the country’s few flux capacitors (secondary gas regulators and, yes, homages to Back to the Future).

The Falcon in Marlboro, offering abundant food and music at an affordable price, hosts a variety of live performances five to seven nights a week. The cover charge is $0; artists thrive on the audience’s generous donations. A whopping 50% of the six weekly performances at Quinn’s features live, top-shelf jazz. To pair: a dusky diner atmosphere and Japanese fare.

Stacked against a drink menu listing over 350 beers, Bacchus’s 9 billiard tables, ping-pong table, foosball table, dart board, and pinball machine are just icing on the nightlife cake.

With over 250 seats in the house, no table is a bad table from which to enjoy the Towne Crier Café’s music, menu, and state-of-the-art facilities. Late-night delights are just a few blocks from the Beacon train station.

Daryl’s House in Pawling did the math: music five nights a week, plus afternoon shows, equals an average of seven shows per week or 365 shows a year! Owner Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates welcomes you.
