The Most Overlooked Mediterranean Paradise in Europe
From some of the minds behind the Surf Lodge, this Montauk hotel/resto/nightlife hybrid boasts a laundry list of amenities, including a sand-filled pool for punch bowl-fueled rounds of ping pong and bocce.
This 32-room boutique getaway in Montauk boasts waterview rooms beached up with sun-bleached pine floors and hammocks, plus modern amenities like flatscreens, iPod docks, and WiFi. Hotel guests, locals and visitors alike flock to the hip, seasonal restaurant serving an abundance of daily-catch seafood alongside great cocktails. The Surf Lodge hosts a free weekly concert series outside as well, featuring indie music acts that consistently attract large crowds. Get there early if you want a shot at a table.
A successful night of drinking begins by filling your body with enough food so you're not passed out by 1a. Therefore, hit up the Georgica where you can dine on fine American comfort foods before heading to their late-night lounge area with DJs, bottles, and possible celeb sightings (!!).
Originally opened by local surfers in '81 but closed in '06, the Parrot has returned to its hole-in-the-wall corner of an East Hampton parking lot, with cleaned up wooden floors, exuberantly painted walls, and a repaired outdoor garden patio.
This Hamptons resto gets things started with a diverse dinner menu. Post dinner, watch the place transform into an ultralounge where you can rage with bottle service all night long.
