A live music venue has closed its doors for a winter break.

Always sad when a favorite live music venue closes its doors, even if temporary. For live music lovers in the Hudson Valley, there are many great venues that some consider to be favorite spots. Of course, the legendary Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie closed its doors back in October. Many were saying that it was permanently closing, but that is not the case as new owners revealed ambitious plans for the venue which hopefully will see a return of The Chance in either late 2024 or in 2025. Fingers crossed!

Being January in the Hudson Valley, some would consider it to be the dead of winter with not much happening. Personally, I'm not a winter person, so I'm perfectly good with not doing anything in January Winter Break, which actually doesn't sound like a bad idea, and makes perfectly good sense to me. With January being a lull in business typically for a lot of places, just coming off the busy Christmas holiday season, why not take some time off this month?

The Falcon in Marlboro Closed For January Winter Break

The Falcon in Marlboro, NY is a popular Ulster County live music venue and restaurant located off Rt 9W in the heart of Marlboro, overlooking the scenic Marlboro Falls. The interesting thing about The Falcon is that there is never a cover charge for the live performances. Patrons are encouraged to make a donation and all the proceeds go directly to the artists. The venue recently took to social media to wish everyone a happy 2024 and to announce that they are taking the time to rest and relax this month. The venue also said that they'll be coming back with a bang in February, so there is no need to worry about live music lovers and fans of the Falcon. This very temporary closure is just for the month of January with a full lineup of great entertainment starting back up on Feb. 1.

Happy 2024! We're taking some time to rest & relax here at The Falcon this month. Then we're coming back with a bang in February! Check our full lineup and make your reservations at www.liveatthefalcon.com. No Tickets. No Cover. Donations Encouraged. Support Living Artists.

Having been to The Falcon before, it really is a world-class music venue that is so worth checking out. Such a great, diverse lineup of live music in a beautiful setting. I first visited The Falcon back in 2019 for a show featuring Corky Laing celebrating the music of Mountain.
