Local Bar with Live Music
Junior’s has brick walls, a cozy fireplace, Christmas decorations and a tree … but people don’t go there for the humble digs. Football games on TV; beer and liquor with a low price tag; delicious homemade pub grub; the welcoming, laughing regulars — that’s why this bar is one of Dutchess County’s best loved and most well-kept secrets.
Domestic pitchers are $8.50 and imported pitchers are $15.50.
Order a house-made burger (hand-packed fresh ground beef, not frozen) and fries for $7. Try their new wing flavor, Cajun Dry Rub. During football games, get a dozen each of steamers, wings and pizza bites, all for $12.
Tonight, the Rock and Roll Christmas Party goes from 8 to midnight. Two bands will perform: Johnny Dell and UFB, plus Vito Petroccitto and the Fatheads.
Karaoke is every Thursday night and there’s a live band most Saturday nights. Cray and Dempsey pop in every now and then for a performance, so keep your eyes on Junior’s Facebook page for information about their next show. If you’ve never heard of this longstanding Irish duo, you’re missing out. They combine various styles of music, put their own twist on an eclectic choice of songs, throw in some insult humor and ask for crowd participation. They’re talented, hilarious and certainly worth the night out, if you need an excuse.
Junior’s hosts one of the only horseshoe leagues in the area and you’ll have to wait until someone keels over to get on the team — that’s how popular it is.
