A MUSICAL EVENING 1814 STYLE ~ May 9

Musicians Morneault and Spencer bring The Griswold Inn's 1801 Tap Room to life with music of the era. A capella harmonies and other arrangements with a variety of instruments including mandolin, guitar and banjo, will bring the atmospheric Tap Room back two centuries. Costumed wait staff as well as British "soldiers" and local "militia" add to the authenticity.

1814 TAVERN NIGHT ~ May 10

Tavern Night in the atmospheric 'Gris' will feature an evening of Sea Shanties by The Jovial Crew. The spirited “Crew” sings and plays melodies of the sea, tavern and shore. Enjoy 1814 inspired libations while served by costumed wait staff. See Gris Events Calendar for more or call 860.767.1776.

We entertain every day of the week in our award-winning Tap Room where lively music rings out nightly!
