Having a compound in The Hamptons is one way to keep up with our neighbors who buzz (and get buzzed) out East, from June through August. But you don't have to drop $$$ to know what's up — that's what we're here for.
We've got a hit list of all the brand-new Hamptons hot spots to pop into, plus the raddest parties and restaurants that'll prove to your friends that you're more than just a houseguest. After clicking through, you'll be a bona fide Hamptons Wikipedia. And sure, all of the good stuff's still there: Ruschmeyer's and Babette's are solid go-tos, but we thought it was time to diversify your old routine with some new boxes to check off after that hellacious traffic on the L.I.E. If nothing else, our cheat sheet will keep you from going to Sam's every night of the week.
