The Wherehouse | Newburgh, NY

What can I say, since it's opening on Newburgh's Liberty Street in 2009,  The Wherehouse has become our go-to spot for a casual dinner, great beer, music and a good time. It feels like home….and that's because I love music & beer!! hehe…and the staff are the best!!

The ambiance is a mix of psychedelic "think Haight-Ashbury" 60's vibe (Many posters designed by owner Dan Brown- Read his story here), authentic music memorabilia, and a bit of an industrial mix with exposed brick. Somehow you still feel a warm fuzzy feeling here. What's great is you'll also find a wide age range of patrons. It's the kind of place everyone can enjoy for a family meal or a drink out with friends.

The 24 rotating taps from local, national and international breweries are constantly changing, so each time I go I get to try something new…and you can't beat that. The Wherehouse also supports local breweries so you are likely to find at least one of Newburgh Brewing Co, Rushing Duck or Keegan Ales on tap. They also have a large assortment of bottled beer and wine.

As for the food…well…the menu is extensive…in a good way!! They have over 50 hamburger creations YUM, a vegetarian selection…Taco Tuesday's, Wing Wednesdays ( over 35 flavors of wings) and Mack Daddy Thursday's (Over 10 flavors of mac n' cheese) YUM! One of my personal menu favorites is the Pierogies! I lived in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for many years so the Pierogies are comforting! The menu goes on and on with other yummy stuff like wonderful nachos, fried chicken, chili and more…

Sorry...half eaten wings!
These are the Sweet Chili wings! AWESOME

Let's talk music! The Wherehouse is host to the most eclectic assortment of music from Rock-n-Roll and Punk to Blues, Folk, Rockabilly and Jazz… Check their Facebook page here for weekly food, event and music updates and performances. You'll even get a chance to see all of the amazing poster designs by Dan Brown.

Lastly, I truly think The Wherehouse has changed the face of Liberty Street!! They created a wave of excitement over restoring Newburgh's business district. They have since opened a record store called "The Vinyl Resting Place" a few doors down…yet another great addition to Newburgh! Happy 4th Anniversary to The Wherehouse!!

I hope you all make your way over to The Wherehouse and please say hi to Juanita behind the bar!! What a doll!!
