Upstairs or down, The Falcon welcomes everyone, with no cover charge and no minimum. We encourage contributions to the careworn donation box, which remains as both a symbol of democracy in the arts and a way for any patron to give what they will and what they can, in support of the living artists whose work they have enjoyed. This fund goes directly to our extraordinary performing musicians in the main act, demonstrating our respect and gratitude for their skill, and livelihood.
The 3,500 square foot main floor provides the acoustically correct, live performance venue with a 24 X 16 stage. The Falcon’s back line is assembled to please its artists – Yamaha C7 grand piano, a Hammond B3 organ with the sought-after Leslie amp & pedals, full drum kit, guitar & bass amps, powered monitors with separate mixes, along with light and sound systems of excellent quality.
Gallery space on the main floor presents & promotes the work of visual artists and photographers from the Hudson Valley to New York City. Exhibitions feature a different artist every two months. The Falcon takes no fee from art sales, but encourages visitors to buy original pieces from the artists.
The barroom was created entirely with recycled materials. The bar itself had a past life as a shuffleboard. Kitchen facilities are designed to provide creative, affordable food for the live performances and support catered events on the lower floor, which is nearing completion. The Falcon’s deck seats diners over the dramatic gorge that is Marlboro Falls. At the lower level, a patio area and a rock-walled pathway and lookout attract those seeking a complete experience – fine food, world-class music and an unforgettable natural setting.
