Weekend at Gurney’s
Oysters and Dancing in the Hamptons
But we don’t want you here this weekend.
Get on out. Make any excuse. Fabricate a family member in labor. Get your death-faking consultant on the horn.
And then head immediately here...
The Beach Club at Gurney’s Inn, an oceanside expanse of dancing, spa-ing and obscenely fresh seafood-ing, now open in Montauk.
If you could put the entire concept of the Hamptons in one spot, this would be it. Your options are threefold: letting the ocean do its thing while you do nothing; carousing with DJs from the continent; or consuming oysters and whole grilled fish caught on a rod-and-reel nearby. (Hook-to-table, let’s call it.)
In the lounge area, you’re working with a South of France vibe—whitewashed deck chairs and bottles of rosé (hey, that’s okay here) with the occasional oceanside massage. (Warning: this may lead to you achieving total consciousness. Which is nice.)
The parties: several weekly soirees with electro DJs fresh from Europe. And this is the same place that occasionally has a guy parachuting your champagne in, where it’s then marched to you in a parade.
So yeah, they’re solid on the party thing.
