On Saturday, November 23, Revel 32° — Poughkeepsie’s newest music and events space — officially kicked things off with its Reveal Party. The evening included two performances from the soul-dance act Remember Jones, including a full-album tribute – with a 12-piece orchestra – to Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black.
Revel 32° is housed in the former Masonic Temple at 32 Cannon St, which was purchased by developers Gina and Jim Sullivan, of 40 Cannon St fame. They are in the process of converting the property’s many rooms into distinctive spaces. The Grand Ballroom, with formal stained-glass windows and original light fixtures, and Cannon Hall’s stage and balcony were open for the party. The restaurant and bar of the 1845 Gathering Room, along with the rooftop, which will provide “a truly unique view of the city,” are projected to open later in 2020. The Sullivans see these spaces playing host to “anything from an intimate dinner party to a wedding to a full-blown concert.”
To this end, Revel 32° has partnered with the Bardavon, which co-promoted the Reveal Party and plans to take advantage of the building’s unique performing spaces.
Upcoming events include the Hudson Valley Beer Festival on February 29, a Mardi Gras Party on March 7, and more public and private events. Go to www.revel32.com for additional information.
