Inside: The Turning Point in Piermont
John McAvoy, owner of the Turning Point in Piermont, refers to his small club as a listening room. Most of the tables are long and communal, though some people choose to take a seat at the bar. Entrance and seating to the shows—which feature up and coming artists and well as established folk, blues, jazz and rock acts—are general admission.
The Turning Point first opened its doors down the street in 1976, where Xaviar's is now. The venue moved in '81, and opened the Curtain Room in '85. After years of running the two-story establishment, McAvoy decided to close the upstairs restaurant in 2009, and focus on the music.
Here's a quick look inside.
