Opening of the Social District, near the Industrial Arts brewery in Beacon
Arcade games and ax throwing are just a few of the activities on offer at a new location adjacent to the Industrial Arts Brewing Company.
District Social was intended to open last year in the town of Beacon, but plans were derailed by the early impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A year later, the performance hall will finally open its doors on Friday.
Located at 511 Fishkill Ave., the Social District is next to the Industrial Arts Beacon Brewery. Although the two companies are not formal partners, their proximity makes them a more attractive destination.

The company has a full bar, with Industrial Arts beer on tap. As for food, you can enjoy the offerings of the food trucks on site.
“The concept of operating a great entertainment venue including ax throwing, arcade games, live music, billiards, etc., and having it all alongside a world-class brewery is very important. makes sense, ”said Bill Diamond, founder of Diamond Hospitality Group, which owns District Social. “While attracting families with children during the day, we also hope to attract crowds of over 21 at night for concerts and bar experiences. “
Live music will be the main focus of the venue, with a dance floor and plans to feature local bands and artists, Diamond said. District Social will also feature plenty of arcade games, four ax throwing lanes, billiards, and darts.
“We have probably the largest arcade in Dutchess County,” said Diamond.
Jeff O’Neill, founder of Industrial Arts, said he was delighted to have District Social as a neighbor.
“We share a great site at Beacon that should appeal to all kinds of people and we really can’t wait to have a fun summer together,” he said.
The various Social District activities will be à la carte, although Diamond has said he hopes to eventually offer membership.
