The Lion's Den
Entertainment Seven Nights a Week and Never a Cover Charge!
The Lion's Den pub, located downstairs at The Red Lion Inn, offers entertainment seven nights a week, and never a cover charge. There's different entertainment each night, with regular appearances by local performers including David Grover, the Sun Mountain Fiddler, and the Housatonic Philharmonic, offering everything from acoustic folk to R&B, and reggae to the blues. Some nationally recognized performers have been known to grace our humble pub stage from time to time - James Taylor, Lauren Ambrose and Roger Salloom among them.
On chilly nights ask for a table by the fireplace and enjoy a genuine pint of ale or stout, a glass of your favorite wine, or a mug of hot mulled cider - all accompanied by our classic pub fare.
The Lion's Den is open (until 1 a.m. on weekends), with entertainment from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 9 p.m. to midnight Friday-Saturday. House guests can access the Lion's Den through the Tavern, or by entering beneath the red awning on Main Street.
Trivia Nights at The Lion's Den
The Lion's Den Pub hosts locally themed Trivia Nights every first and third Thursday. Local Nights will feature a game of trivia (both Trivial Pursuit- and locally-based) and prizes hosted by long-time Red Lion Inn bartender Patrick Flynn from 6:00–8:00pm, followed by live music. There will be an appetizer or entree special featuring ingredients sourced from local merchants and farmers. Test your knowledge and support the Berkshires on Trivia Thursdays at the Lion's Den!
