A swank Southampton joint with a lot to offer

Spurred on by their epic success with Surf Lodge (and the Atlantic Terrace, the W South Beach, etc..), the team behind the Capri's transformed the former Pink Elephant/Day and Night spot into a destination not only for guests staying in their bright, luxuriously appointed (contemporary art from Exhibition A) rooms, but also those dropping by to crush some sushi on a poolside daybed, which might get crushed too, depending on how much sushi you eat. The elements:

Nobu at Capri: Under the direction of the team behind the NYC original, the hotel's top floor (and adjacent balcony) is serving up Nobu Matsuhisa's signature offerings (Tiradito Nobu Style, Rock Shrimp Tempura, Black Cod with Miso...), plus new dishes "exclusive to the Hamptons", making it one more thing Daniel Baldwin can be jealous about.

The Bathing Club: A lushly landscaped open-air oasis filled with gardens, daybeds, and poolside lounge chairs, it also offers intimate nooks for late-night snacks and cocktails (also from Nobu), a giant outdoor screen for flicks, live music, and a fire pit, which Terrence Malick wished he could do after he heard the reaction at Cannes to The Tree of Life.

Cynthia Rowley: Curated by the designer herself, necessities like international newspapers, shades, and bathing suits'll share the space with art prints, tweed Chesterfield jackets, and striped cardigans from Rowley's Mr. Powers collection, which hopefully isn't what's playing on the giant outdoor screen, as that would crush everyone.
