Dancing Cat Saloon - Bethel, NY

The Dancing Cat Saloon is the sister restaurant of the Catskill Distilling Company located 1000 feet from the entrance to the original Woodstock Festival site and the Bethel Woods Performing Arts center. This charming restaurant serves simple but elegant fare with a twist of local history, from the Hendrix Hamburger to Buratta and Salmon L'orange, to perfectly grilled steaks and so much more. This venue is both dog friendly and children friendly with free wi-fi and an outside dining deck overlooking the field of "Stray Cat" sculptures in front the of Catskill Distilling Company. There is literally something for all at this unique property. Come as strangers, leave as friends! Sunday brunch features live jazz and live music on weekends with other interesting and fun events throughout the year. 

Before or after dining, visit the Catskill Distilling Company, a farm distillery founded in 2010 that produces NY State craft and spirits. You can take a tour of the distillery and see what it takes to produce spirits and learn about the distilling process. Finish the tour with a signature cocktail in our tasting room which features the restored bar from the 1939 World's Fair, which was original purchased by the Jeff Lake Hotel in Jeffersonville, NY.

The Dancing Cat Saloon is the true gem for the Catskills music scene. As a midwest performer who gets to tour the region occasionally, I can hardly begin to describe Stacy's passionate hospitality and enthusiasm for live performances, fine drinks, exceptional food, and local history / photography. If you get the opportunity to visit this region, drop in and catch up on all of the local gossip and above all take in the beautiful scenery and make some new friends. -Garrett Jones- The Vine Brothers

We greatly enjoyed our lunch here on the way back from the Callicoon Farmer's Market. There was live music when we were there. We both enjoyed our meals and had great service. Hope to come back on our next trip!
