This Amagansett classic hosts live music nightly all year round, but come summertime, hordes of young Manhattanites come in droves to binge drink and mingle in the outside space and back bar area--a rowdy, meet-market scene packed with sun-kissed prepsters ordering shots of Jack in bulk.
This brand-new rooftop oasis, located atop the Kimberly Hotel, is sophisticated without being pretentious. There's plenty of outdoor space (and a retractable roof), and though the sweeping views of midtown make it hard to forget you're still in the city, once you've seen New York like this, you'll be glad you stayed home for the weekend.
