A Trip to the Hamptons, Part II

April 19th, 2013 by Katie Pate

Last post, we discussed how you can start your vacation in the Hamptons while visiting New York city. This post, we continue that theme with a discussion of Hamptons nightlife and other itinerary ideas for your trip.

Nightlife in the Hamptons

boat-house-east-hamptonWhile East Hampton nightlife has quieted some in recent years (whereas Montauk is becoming the place for clubbers and night owls) one of the nicest ways to spend an evening in the Hamptons is to find a venue with a waterfront view, where you can watch and hear the water while enjoying a cocktail and maybe some music. A popular spot for this is the Boathouse (39 Gann Rd. East Hampton), located in a secluded spot with a view of three mile island. You can get tasty cocktails here and groove to DJ beats.

Other more conventional clubs include Lily Pond (44 Three Mile Harbor Rd. East Hampton), RdV East (125 Tuckahoe Road, Southampton) and the redesigned Maidstone (207 Main St. East Hampton).

The Morning After – Fresh Tastes

After a night of dancing and cocktails, you’ll be ready for some fresh sustenance. After a warm, delicious breakfast at the inn, explore the farmer’s market in Greenport. Open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturdays at the United Methodist Church (624 Main St.), you can pick up local honey, pastries, eggs, cheese and of course produce. Get goodies for lunch at the beach!

When you are ready for your next meal, check out the chic, newly renovated seafood restaurant Race Lane (31 Race Lane East Hampton). The space was designed by American architect Norman Jaffe and serves raw seafood (think clams and oysters), as well as seafood favorites like red snapper, salmon and lobster.

Your Home Base – Arbor View House

While you explore Long Beach and the Hamptons, we want to be your home base, where you can spend each night in a comfortable and private room, awakening to the crisp smells of the ocean.

A Vacation in New York is Incomplete Without a Trip to the Hamptons

April 13th, 2013 by Katie Pate

If you are planning a summer vacation to New York City, make sure you save a couple days for Long Island and the Hamptons. This fabled region of luxury and elite residences is also a destination for those a little closer to the median income. Let me explain how you can have an amazing two-day vacation in the Hamptons, without spending like a pop star.

There’s lots of buzz in right now in Montauk, the most Eastern point on Long Island.

A beautiful drive around the Great Peconic Bay from our Bed and Breakfast near Greenport, shabby motels and down-home restaurants are being remodeled into “boho-chic” establishments.

In East Hampton, a gaggle of luxurious boutiques and restaurants have opened. Older hotels and beloved barrooms have been renovated. This is a great place to window shop, grab delicious bites and learn more about what’s happening in the Hamptons.

What’s Going on in the Hamptons While I’m Visiting?

Want to get a jump on what’s going on in the Hamptons during your visit? Grab the free glossy magazines — Social Life, Hampton Life, Hamptons, Hampton Sheet, Dan’s Papers — for the scoop on charity events, screenings and other happenings. You can find them at the doorways of many boutiques in East Hampton.

Speaking of a Scoop…East Hampton Bites

If you have a sweet tooth or need a cold treat during a hot afternoon, the new spot is Scoop du Jour, (35 Newtown Lane, East Hampton) an ice cream parlor where waffle cones are stacked high and flavors like Monster Mint Oreo and Toasted Coconut tempt even the supermodels. You can also get Dreesen’s doughnuts here, a Hamptons institution since the 1950s.

For dinner – two East Hampton restaurants are on the radar: Serafinas (104 North Main St.), a pizza oven and Italian seafood restaurant. Dinner for two runs around $100. If American cuisine and a more moderate price is your preference, check out Bostwick’s Chowder House (277 Pantigo Rd.).
