They have arm chairs around the fireplace and rafters over the bar. The old barn at the Egremont Village Inn gives refuge on a windy night. Tables gather around an informal stage with a piano. And concerts, comedy and karaoke have been drawing a community here for pub comfort food and music.
The local crowd has been growing, and the music goes on year-round, says co-owner Jenny Rubin. Musicians have come to visit from across the country and even across the Atlantic. The informal stage has seen folk, rock, jazz and more — singer-songwriters and string bands from Boston, Brooklyn or the Rockies.
Students from Bard College at Simon’s Rock and local musucians gather here at regular open mics. And a young theatre company, Ghostlit Rep, performs original shows, contemporary plays and classics.
Where to Find it
The entertainment can come with dinner. The barn serves pub food — burgers and shrimp tacos, quesadillas and chicken pot pie. The specials change weekly, Rubin says, but the style and flavor of upscale bar stays constant.
