A Trip to the Hamptons, Part II
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
While 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.
