Montauk, New York
The Montauk Beach House
Party Vibes by the Sea
What it is
A chillaxed 33-room hideaway with live music shows and two pools just a block from the Atlantic in downtown Montauk.
What it isn't
Family-oriented. The only kids this place is ready for are club kids letting-loose on the sand (think spinning DJs and constant cocktails).
What we think
Scrolling through the Montauk Beach House’s Instagram, you might think you’d stumbled upon another fabulous (human) influencer—kicking back on a floatie in a turquoise pool; chilling Veuve Clicquot; bathing in a soaking tub with flower petals and slivers of citrus. In reality, the hotel is gram sprung-to-life, with photogenic touches at every turn. Among many choices, you can opt for a Moonlight Room (with 14-foot-high beamed ceilings and cast iron beds) or Whitewater Lofts, which have private entrances and headboards hewn from a reclaimed Pennsylvania barn. You can’t go wrong—just don’t forget to post about it.
You're here because
You need to feel like you’re 23 again, and the events list here is always off the charts cool. A Punch Pedal House fitness class? An AfroFunk Friday where the vibes are “smooth as f**k”? Sign you up.
Cocktails are your favorite kryptonite—but only when they’re good. Thankfully, the mixologists at this bar have perfected a slew of sips. Tonight, you’re having the Talk Derby To Me (with browned butter washed Bulleit Bourbon, of course) and the Love Machine (Don Julio tequila with cilantro jalapeno juice and passion fruit liqueur) and maybe, after a few more rounds by the pool, an aspirin or two in the morning.
