Settle in for a sophisticated Hamptons summer

Summer in the Hamptons is about embracing casual chic, getting sand in your toes and, perhaps, indulging in an extra ice cream cone, or two. We’re here to recommend everything from fine dining in East Hampton, to $1 local oysters for happy hour from a stand down the road. From summer galas to backyard BBQs, summer in the Hamptons is low-key luxury at its best.

East Hampton Village

Head down to Main Beach on Tuesday evenings to join other music lovers for a waterside concert. On five Wednesdays throughout the summer, you’ll find movies at sunset in both Herrick Park and Main Beach, as part of the renowned Hamptons International Film Festival. Or, head to the Guild Hall, the cultural heart of the East End, for plays, concerts, dances, literary readings, and more.

The award-winning wines at the well-known Wölffer Estate are all delightful, but summer evenings call particularly for their excellent rosé. Located close to Journey, the vineyard is a must for oenophiles, who can enjoy tastings with a view in a rustic-modern space perfectly perched above the estate grounds and gently rolling Hamptons landscape. Be sure to order small bites and charcuterie plates for a little nosh as you sip.
