New Record Store/Bar Opening in the Hudson Valley Next Month
A record store and craft beer taproom called The Vinyl Room will be taking over a vacant Hudson Valley storefront next month.
Owner John Kihlmire says the business will combine both of his passions; vintage vinyl records and craft beer and wine. The record store will be open all day, welcoming music fans and collectors to come by and flip through records. While there, customers can also relax at the bar and grab a drink while enjoying some music. Everything played at the taproom will be off of vinyl records, and that policy will also go for any DJs who come to play for the late night crowds. Live music will eventually also be incorporated into the mix.
The Vinyl Room will be taking over space recently occupied by VinoVin Wine and Spirits on East Main Street in Wappingers Falls. It joins a few other hot spots that have recently opened up in the Village including Di'Vine Wine Bar, which is across the street and County Fare, which occupies the recently closed down Quiet Man Pub just two doors over from The Vinyl Room.
Renovations are already under way at the old wine store with new hardwood floors and record shelves being installed. A full bar is also being put in soon. The Vinyl Room is slated to open up in mid to late June. You can keep track of the progress at the taproom's official Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Kihlmire is already a Wappingers Falls business owner. He runs the MSV DJ service across the street from The Vinyl Room.
