Description

Jazz enthusiasts and history buffs alike won't want to miss a stop at the Deer Head Inn! Though Pennsylvania may not be known as a hotbed for producing jazz musicians, during the 1920's the music style was catching on all across the nation, including the metropolitan areas of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

While the Poconos couldn't boast the cosmopolitan feel of the bigger cities, the area still had plenty of seasonal visitors hailing from those locations. As a way to keep guests entertained during extended stays, local business owners recognized the popularity of the jazz movement. As a result, Deer Head Inn began to offer live jazz music and became one of the most popular jazz clubs in the area, and the Deer Head is now the longest-running jazz club in the United States.

Today, the Inn continues to host live jazz musicians while serving locally inspired fare. Visitors can also extend their stay by booking a room and staying overnight. If you appreciate jazz, you won't want to miss this historical landmark.

On the Road: The Deer Head Inn is easy to access and is centrally located in the town of Delaware Water Gap, PA.

Family Friendly: There are few music shows that appeal to the wide audience that jazz does, and budding musicians will love the history of the Inn.
