Towne Crier Cafe - since 1972.

About Towne Crier Cafe

Founded in 1972, in an old stagecoach stop in Beekmanville, NY, the Towne Crier Cafe has become a mecca for fans—and performers—of live music. After a brief stay in Millbrook, then a quarter-century in Pawling, NY, we relocated in October, 2013, to the blossoming arts hub of Beacon, NY.

Our performance space is spacious but intimate—bringing you what the NY Times called “Down-home access to world-class performers.” Our fine-dining menu emphasizes fresh, local and natural ingredients. And our legendary desserts will have you tweeting OMGs.

After more than four decades in Dutchess County, the Towne Crier Cafe is the oldest venue of its kind under continuous management.
