The number 1 Dive Bar in the Hudson Valley, The Hopewell Inn in Hopewell Junction, NY  is the oldest bar in Dutchess County dating back to the late 1800s. There's been many a fun night for me spent at this bar over the years, checking out some live music back in the day including seeing SATO do their Ozzy tribute there. The bar nowadays has an outdoor beach area with actual sand and a tiki bar atmosphere that is very popular with customers ready for summer fun.

Last year the popular bar was the spot of Bandana Cabana radio promotions all summer, and the owners brought in a new shark mascot that would be named "Fin". Hudson Valley locals were loving the new attraction and continue to do so today.
