Top 5 Thursday: Hello Hamptons!
I can’t pretend, or play it cool. I am stoked to flee the NYC and make my way to a little place known as the Hamptons. What’s on my radar? Here are the first five stops I’ll be making…
Stay. Ruschmeyer’s Montauk.
I’m heading to Montauk tonight to check out the revamped Second House via the The Surf Lodge folk. Ruschmeyer’s looks like my Indian Summer dream equipped with 19 ‘cabins’, a locally-sourced restaurant, bar and beer garden - located minutes from the beach, and on 3 acres of lush, lakeside woodland. Expect a full report tomorrow, but don’t expect me to leave… I have a feeling my Lake Bryn Mawr roots might get the best of me…. rumor has it that Ruschmeyer’s is full of tee-pees, tree-houses and hammocks. I don’t joke about tee-pees… or tree-houses… or hammocks.
Party. South Pointe.
This Memorial Day Weekend, there’s a new sheriff in town. First Name: South. Last Name: Pointe…. And he’s raising the bar for tunes off of 27. Friday night, South Pointe Nightclub (in the old RdV East space) opens in South Hampton with a weekend full of David Berrie, Funkagenda, Drek Martinez and closing out with Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers. Some icing on the party-cake? The spot will be equipped with palm trees, cabanas and a St. Tropez vibe… so see you on the flip side. Questions or concerns? Contact Jonathan Schwartz, just say JetsetFarryn sent you.
View. Not A Gallery at The Bulls Head Barn.
From May through September, Not a Gallery (by New York City-based digital artist and super cutie Justin Belmont) has moved into the historic Bulls Head Barn in Bridgehampton. The 18th Century structure is now a “pop-up” summer art space, hosting rotating exhibitions of new artwork. Check out some collections on display (Splatter painted floor, Abstracts, Manhattan Maps and Subway Rolls series) and snag an invite to special events like “ART + FASHION” in collaboration with designer Astrophel + Stella, and “SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY” hosted by Spear’s Spears. I’ll see you Sunday night….
Boat. Sunset Beach.
Join the yachts pulling up to this Shelter Island outpost — which may be less than two hours from Manhattan but has a distinctively Euro vibe. Occupants spill from the boats onto the beach, some staying for the entire summer, others just for cocktails. André Balazs’s chic, hip hangout has set the tone for East End getaways since it opened in the late ’90s. This summer, stop at this retro spot, just a short ferry ride from the more hectic Hamptons. So grab your rosé aboard StndAIR and go there….
Dish. Nobu at the Capri.
What would a day at the pool be without some supa’ fresh Hamachi? The brand-new Capri Hotel is collaboration of things we love - contemporary art, an open-air garden, luxurious new digs, a Cynthia Rowley shop, and a St. Tropez-meets-Miami vibe. But more importantly, the chic pool comes correct with sushi a la Nobu. Expect the NYC menu you salivate over with some bonus Hampton’s exclusives.
