More about General Duffy’s Waterhole General Duffy’s Waterhole is a beer and cider taphouse with a food court and two large events venues located in Redmond, Oregon. It opened for business in 2019. Shortly after opening, Duffy’s began hosting weekly street markets next to the taphouse. Later that year, General Duffy’s was recognized with two awards: one for improving the city’s downtown economy, and the other as Redmond’s “New Business of the Year”. During the coronavirus pandemic, the business survived a period of carry-out only customer service and other mandated restrictions. Duffy’s owners used that time to develop The Angle, an outdoor music and events venue with space for up to 2,500 attendees. In late 2021, General Duffy’s opened a large special events hall on an adjacent property; Duffy’s Annex provides indoor space for music programs and other events year-round.
