The deadliest thing in Manhattan isn’t its slow-walkers… it’s the summer heatwave. When treading through the city is worsened by the beaming sun and lack of breeze it’s obvious what the solution is: head east. This past weekend gave us the perfect opportunity to drop everything and hop over to Montauk.
Whether you’re a spur of the moment gal or the kind of girl who plans her vay-cay weeks in advance, when it comes to looking for houses, Air B&B is always a safe choice. Homeaway is also a great website to find houses or you can always stay at Gurney’s on the beach for the perfect getaway weekend. Don’t sweat where you stay too much think about how much time you’re actually planning to spend indoors!
As if we didn’t spend all of our time eating and drinking in the city, let us tell you where we ate in Montauk. Ruschmeyer’s stole our hearts our first night and is one of our favorite places in the Hamptons. Whether you’re having dinner (which you should because the food is unreal) or just having drinks, Ruschmeyer’s is a must go with its beautifully lantern-lit outside. A dozen oysters, the perfect lobster roll, and numerous glasses of Prosecco later we danced the night away at Ruschmeyer’s. The next night we headed over to The Surf Lodge. With dinner at 6:30 we didn’t have to wait in line and made it onto the deck by sunset with ice cold cocktails in our hands. Watching the sun set over Fort Pond is euphoric… Bring a cardigan.
After our morning cream cheese and lox at Bird on the Roof we didn’t hesitate before heading to the beach. Bring speakers and drinks! Not in the mood for the sand between your toes? Check out Montauk Beach House. Lunch from the grill, fruity drinks, and poolside DJ’s. What better way to spend a sunny day? Take a little midday break from lounging at Sloppy Tuna where the music is loud, the cocktails are one of a kind, and the crowd is dancing in the Montauk sun.
A weekend isn’t long enough to experience everything our “far east” has to offer, no doubt we’re heading back multiple times this summer. There’s just something about the way a cocktail tastes when you’re in your bathing suit. Our personal favorite was a watermelon, vodka, and jalapeño concoction but you can never go wrong with a glass of rosé.
On our next trip we plan to travel to the rest of the Hamptons and see what all the fuss is about at Southampton’s 1OAK or the Zagat rated Rumba restaurant. Plus, we have to get our shopping fix in Easthampton with it’s huge array of stores like Alice and Olivia and Intermix, or spoil ourselves in The Surf Lodge’s pop up shops. Brb, Montauk.
Yours in Style,
