Nestled in the heart of the Hudson Valley, The Academy is a newly-restored eating and drinking destination just steps from Poughkeepsie’s reinvigorated downtown district.

Keepsake, the crown jewel of the development, is now offering couples the ideal space for the wedding day of their dreams.


At 8700 SF, the space at Keepsake can be utilized for both the formal ceremony and the evening’s festivities. Sliding wood doors serve as a backdrop for the exchanging of vows. Afterwards, guests will be whisked away to the premiere courtyard for cocktail hour, while our team seamlessly transforms the main space for an evening of farm-to-table food, beverages and dancing.

Without any decor, exposed brick walls and steel beams make the space feel industrial chic. A blank slate to transform with personal touches, romantic lighting and so much more. The space includes natural oak colored bentwood reception chairs and farmhouse tables adorned with our modern tableware.


An industrial chic venue located inside The Academy development in the heart of Poughkeepsie. Keepsake can fit a guest count of 220 for sit-down dinner. Keepsake offers wedding couples a place where they can create their dream wedding. Keepsake is also perfect for business events, galas, anniversaries or special events. 


Enjoy your event with a Signature Bar Package from the Hendrick Bar Room. Tailor your wine menu with our in-house sommelier or have our mixologist create the perfect cocktail to get the party started.


Spend quality time with your guests in our beautiful outdoor courtyard. When sitting outside you will feel the industrial, chic and luxurious vibe. This picturesque location is perfect for a drink, a photo or a great conversation on your special night. 


Keepsake offers a private dressing room to prepare for your special day or a quiet place to collect your thoughts before the ceremony. The space includes a seating area for the wedding party as well as a private restroom and full-length mirrors.


Our expert culinary team will help you design a seasonal, locally inspired menu for your big day. Our wedding packages start at $150 per person including cocktail hour with choice of 6 passed hors d’oeuvres and house stationary display, plated or family style menu.
