Daryl’s House Plans to Expand With New Outdoor Venue Space

On Halloween 2014, Hall & Oates performed for the opening night of Daryl’s House in Pawling — owned by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Daryl Hall himself.

This week, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported that the venue is in the planning process to add an outdoor venue space for more than 1,000 guests. The current house hosts a combined restaurant and music space similar to its former tenant, the Towne Crier Cafe, which relocated to Beacon in 2013.

Dary’s House already has a few class acts lined up for what they are calling the Backyard Concert Series, including Todd Rundgren, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Lucius, Shovels & Rope, and Colin Hay, with more to be announced.

While the prospect of the outdoor venue is being received well locally, the venue is still in the planning process. The property owners have to obtain the necessary permits, otherwise the outdoor events won’t be able to take place.

Daryl’s House grew out of the “Live From Daryl’s House” series that Hall began as a web series in 2007.
