The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls | Beacon, NY

A little bit Country, a little bit Rock-n-Roll! Yes!

The Roundhouse is actually a set of factory buildings overlooking the Fishkill Creek - Beacon Falls that were restored into a boutique hotel with 14 rooms (2 penthouse suites), a banquet facility, a restaurant (Swift) and a lounge (2EM). They are working on opening a luxury Spa, and also host weekly Yoga classes and community events upstairs. Yes…all of this…right in Beacon! I LOVE the Hudson Valley :)

The ambiance is a mix of raw factory, rustic flair and modern elegance, designed by renowned architects The Rockwell Group who also designed W New York Union Square and Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach among many more. Read about them here.

The restaurant is called Swift, and serves fresh seasonal dishes from Executive Chef Brandon Collins. I was thrilled with my perfectly prepared scallops! Our entire meal at Swift was memorable...we are surely going to bring everyone here. The dining room has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the falls. Beautiful in summer but the Falls are at their height in the Spring. The patrons are a large mix from young "Hipster" types to business, family and couples…just about everyone! The al fresco patio bar is open in the summer and provides a beautiful setting for a meal.

The lounge at the Roundhouse is called 2EM and serves smaller "Bar Food" plates and cocktails. I think I've tried everything on this menu…soooo good! Try the Short Rib Sliders…holy moly or the Stuffed Pretzels! The lounge is great for a cocktail with friends or a smaller dinner at the bar. Besides bar seating, there are a good amount of tables and my favorite is the warm fireplace flanked by comfy chairs. Say hi to Tim the bartender "Mixologist" he's the best!

The banquet facility is beautiful for community events, fundraisers and Weddings. Guests and wedding parties can even stay in the boutique hotel. There are lighted walkways that lead from the main building to the hall with spectacular views of the creek and falls.

The Roundhouse is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a weekend getaway from NYC. It's location is in close proximity to downtown Beacon…perfect for shopping, exploring and visiting DIA. Enjoy!
