DREAM — Hampton Bays
Late Nite | DJ | Epic
Looking for a great place to party in the Hamptons? Then DREAM is the perfect place for you! Featuring an epic sound system and great lighting, so you can enjoy the party all night long. Great service, great drinks and live music. My favorite place for a party is the Hamptons, you can dance on the main floor or under the summer stars on the outdoor patio equipped with a full sound system.
The Sagaponack Farm Distillery — Sagaponack
Day drinking | Craft Cocktails | Family Friendly
My favorite spot for an early evening or afternoon drink. Craft cocktails, local spirits, unbeatable vibe. Bring your family and lots of space for kids to run around outside. The Distillery hosts an impressive summer event series with exciting local collaborations and live music. One of my favorite locations in the Hamptons; especially in the evening, I can’t think of a more serene setting.
75 Main — Southampton Village
Chic | Club | Late Night Kitchen
75 Main is a chic bar and restaurant located in Southampton, New York. It offers a stylish atmosphere, delicious drinks, and a menu of elevated bar bites. Featured on Bravo’s “Serving the Hamptons,” this is a great place to people-watch. Whether you’re looking for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap, 75 Main is the perfect spot. Recent renovations in 2023 have expanded the bar substantially – make sure you check it out this Summer!
Almond — Bridgehampton
Classic | Martini | Relaxing
Classic bar and grill in the heart of Bridgehampton. The last time I sat down at the bar, I spoke with a bartender who has been there for more than 25 years. We chatted about life in the area and local legends, and I had the best martini (with blue cheese olives) I can remember. Classy. You’ll find me here for happy hour on a weekday night with a cocktail while I wait for traffic to die down. This is a bar review, but their food is incredible.
Murfs Backstreet Tavern — Sag Harbor Village
Iconic | Raucus | Fun
One of the most iconic bars in the Hamptons, this rustic cabin is a throwback to a time when Sag Harbor was home to more than 25 bars. Murfs is always a good time with a devoted local crew and some of the hardest-working bartenders I’ve ever known. The large backyard courtyard is centered around a ring toss game that will keep you entertained for way longer than you thought. Tired of upscale and fancy? Murfs is a true dive bar with all the character and charm you could ever want in a bar.
Wölffer Estate Vinyard — Southampton Town
Elegant | Upscale | Somme
World-renowned vineyard home to the iconic Summer in a Bottle. The Tasting Room is an elegant and refined space with chic, seasonal furnishings and amazing service. Opening at 11 am every day of the week, the Tasting Room is a great way to enjoy an afternoon overlooking the vineyard. Make sure you check out their in-venue wine store!
The Blue Parrot — East Hampton Village
Beachy | Outdoor Patio | Margaritas
Loved by locals and visitors alike for its chill vibe, great nachos, and STRONG margaritas. Featuring a bright, beachy concept and a large covered patio, The Parrot is a great place to meet old friends and make new ones. Sitting in a small nook just off Main Street in East Hampton Village, the Blue Parrot is big enough that you’ll have space inside and outside while still remaining cozy and comfortable.
Bostwick’s Chowder House — East Hampton Town
Daytime | Seafood | Friendly
One of the best restaurants in the Hamptons, the Chowder House’s bar is the perfect place for an afternoon drink and some baked clams. Every time I go, I meet new interesting people, and the bar staff is super friendly. My favorite bar for an after-beach trip; the atmosphere is easy to love and non-pretentious. The bar is cozy, but there is plenty of room on the side patio, with bar access. Say hi to Robbie at the bar!
The Springs Tavern — Springs
Local Haunt | Great Food | Spacious
Charming neighborhood bar in the center of Springs. Recently renovated and serving great food, the bar is always filled with friendly locals from around Springs. Be warned – the shots are BIG, but they have a great Tequila selection (No Casa Amigos!!), so bottoms up!
Rosies — Amagansett
Cosmopolitan | Late Night Food | Great Music
Rosie’s is the Hamptons’ “Goldilocks bar”—not too crowded and not too empty; not too fancy and not too dive-y; not Murfs and not Mobys—Rosies is just right! That makes it sound like the bar is defined by what it isn’t, but that isn’t true. Rosies’ identity is entirely its own, and I always feel right at home with the other clientele. Rosie’s finds the right balanced mix of cosmopolitan and coastal-casual sensibilities—eating, drinking, and togethering—perfectly representing the Hamptons.
Dive Bar Pizza — Amagansett
Pizza | Billiards | Late Nite
Cannot recommend this bar enough! Definitely my favorite pizza in the Hamptons. You can smell the ocean on the breezy front porch and grab pizza by the slice directly from the kitchen in the courtyard. Inside, the atmosphere is easy-going, with the walls covered in polaroids of regulars and band flyers; you will definitely feel at home here. Love all the graffiti on the walls, apparently it’s WIll & Jerf’s favorite bar! The Hamptons-only sports bar, Dive Bar Pizza is a great place for families during the day, they even have a Skate Park! Live music multiple times each week. Plenty of indoor-outdoor space, billiards, and a Mortal Kombat machine!
The Montauket — Montauk
Sunsets | Live Music | Busy
No bar compares to the sunset views from the Montauket overlooking For Pond Bay to the West. Named after the Native American Tribe from eastern Long Island, the bar speaks to the Hamptons’ history as a fishing community. Also, they have a mega cute thrift store onsite! Great atmosphere, bands play outside, and a double-sided bar lets you order drinks from the patio.
