Where to Enjoy Live Music in Tarrytown

Tarrytown used to be called the “Millionaires’ Colony” because of all the Astors, Carnegies, and Rockefellers who spent weekends here in massive mansions they called “cottages.” They needed a place to rub elbows, so chocolate magnate William L. Wallace built the lavish Tarrytown Music Hall in 1885. Looking spiffy after recent renovations, the Queen Anne-style concert hall is still the place to go for live music in Tarrytown.

An intimate space for live music, Tarrytown’s Jazz Forum features some of the best known names in the business. There’s a buzzy bar area and a menu that features everything from small plates made for sharing to entrees that you’ll want to keep every forkful for yourself. Monthly jam sessions are a special treat, as are free concerts held in waterfront parks in five different communities.
