F is for Fitness
Elements SUP Fit is a fitness class that incorporates vigorous strength and conditioning exercises with an active recovery session ... all atop a stand-up paddleboard. Good for your health. Good for looking better naked.
H is for Harbor East
A new eatery from James Willis and Andrew Molen with Chef Jason Hook, newcomer Harbor East touts a menu of elevated farm-to-table eats. Expect a mixing pot of food (and vibes) culled from the south of France, tropical Indonesia, Sydney harbor and coastal New England.
I is for Imbibe
Father/son duo Chef Eric Miller and Adam Miller are bringing their newest iteration, Flagship, to Montauk. Expect shareable eats and a stocked raw bar with some signature pre-bottled classic cocktails for large groups (Low ABV Bamboo, Martini, Negroni, Manhattan and more), as well as frozen drinks in takeout container-shaped glassware.
J is for Jet
Beat the traffic and opt for a PC-12 chartered flight with Tradewind Aviation.
K is for Kicking Back
No lugging everything to the beach. Cooper’s Beach has chair and umbrella rentals on site, nearby concessions and freshwater showers. So no dragging sand back to the room, either.
L is for Lincoln
Lincoln just kicked off an all-summer-long concert series that'll bring Charles Bradley, Kurt Vile, Bob Moses and a slew of other acts to the stage at Montauk’s Surf Lodge. There will also be driving experiences in the new, and very fresh, Lincoln Continental.
M if for Miss Chloe
Recently revamped, Miss Chloe is a laid-back venue with live music and entertainment. Less club, more lounge, you’ll be able to hear one another talk before getting after it for the night.
N is for Networking
The Hampton Classic is always a perfect scene for horse-jumping and hob-nobbing.
O is for
Newcomer Claude’s provides refreshingly easygoing eats at accessible — or at least Hamptons accessible — prices. It’s lovely, it’s outdoors and they serve a smashing breakfast seven days a week. Stick around the pool patio after for an

Q is for Quit Drinking Róse
Enough already with the pink stuff. Hit the taproom at Montauk Brewery.

T is for The Maidstone
Sleep and eat at The Maidstone in East Hampton with Chef David Standridge of popular West Village spot Café Clover.
U is for Unwind
The East Hampton Point waterfront bar with live music every weekend should do the trick.
V is for Vroooom
Lambos, Bentleys, fast cars, classic cars — Prestige rentals
W is for Window Shopping
Big Flower returns for its second season. An excellent place to up your style ante or snag a fancy smelling candle or two.
X is for X-treme
Go flyboarding at Hampton Flyboard. It’s not easy, but the pictures of you gliding over the water on a hoverboard — or, let's be honest, going completely ass over teakettle — will be worth it.
Y is for Yachts
Get yourself on the water and rent a yacht for the day via Heron Yacht Charters.
Z is for Zzzs
