A taste of New York City has opened in Ulster County.

Back in February, we shared that one of the Hudson Valley's nicest venues was temporarily closed to make some exciting changes and according to the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce, those changes are complete and they are ready to serve you.

Tavern at Diamond Mills

The Tavern at Diamond Mills announced it was closing on February 21, 2023, for renovations. The plan at the Tavern was to start renovations immediately so they could reopen as soon as possible. Once everything was completed they planned to reopen with a new name, a new menu and so much more.
