Hurley Mountain Inn is a restaurant/sports tavern in historic Hurley, New York.

History[edit]

The Inn began during the early 19th century as the “Suspension Bridge House.” About the beginning of the 20th century it was renamed the Hurley Hotel,[1] featuring a tavern and a one chair barber shop. During the early 1970s it was renamed the Hurley Mountain Inn. For a few years it was known as a biker bar, but then a NY State Trooper barracks was sited directly across the street and the tavern became a tame flag-festooned family place, though thong-barings continued during its New Years celebrations. They claim to have the largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in New York - "latest figure, we served over 12,000 pounds of Mosey's corned beef in just 6 days! (Not to mention 5,000 lb (2,300 kg). of cabbage, 4,500 lb (2,040 kg). of potatoes and 4,000 lb of carrots!)." [2][1]

The Hurley Mountain Inn was the setting for an upstate bar scene for the movie Tootsie.[3]
