Keep the Parrott and Local, Live Music Alive!

The Parrott Delaney Tavern is a restaurant/live music venue located in the former Ovation Guitar Factory in New Hartford, CT. While the Tavern is relatively young at 5 years old, the Parrott name has been connected to showcasing live music in Northwest Connecticut for the better part of 30 years. 

To continue bringing in the beloved entertainment of Connecticut’s finest bands, and to continue providing the community with the perfect setting for fundraisers, birthday and anniversary parties, class reunions and other important milestones, the Parrott Delaney Tavern needs your help. 

As rent bills, utility bills, insurance costs and product costs continue to mount, and the livelihoods of our employees taking huge hits, the Tavern needs a boost in the arm. The uncertainty of small funding scares us, and how the public reacts to this virus even upon re-opening is very much up in the air. Recovery will be slow. Our plan is to come back stronger than ever, with a revamped food and beverage menu and a continued focus on being a preferred venue for local bands, community events and celebrations. 

For anyone donating $50, you will be our guest at our “Grand Affair Gratitude Party”, when social distancing is no longer the norm.  Donations of $100 or more will include an invite to the “Grand Affair Party” and make you a member of our Mug Club, with discounted prices for a year. 

We thank you very much for your support.
