Nestled in Montauk, Salivar's Clam & Chowder House is a family-run establishment that has been delighting diners with fresh, local seafood for over 20 years.

The restaurant's signature red neon Salivar’s signs create a warm, nostalgic glow inside and out, while the famous head of a great white shark—caught by sport fisherman Frank Mundus, the inspiration for the charter captain in Jaws—adds a touch of maritime history. With a variety of dining options including an indoor bar, outdoor bar, enclosed patio, cozy dining room, and a top deck with stunning harbor views, Salivar’s is the perfect place to savor a delicious seafood meal and soak in the East End atmosphere.

For a night of unforgettable music and a laid-back atmosphere, head to Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. Since 1987, this intimate venue has showcased internationally-renowned performers alongside local East End artists, making it a legendary spot on Main Street. The Talkhouse combines a vibrant music scene with the charm of a neighborhood bar, offering three distinct spaces to enjoy. In the Main Room, a long wood bar invites you to grab a drink while the dance floor and stage keep the energy high. The Back Bar provides a quieter space for conversation while still keeping you close to the music. Outside, the Patio offers a perfect place to enjoy the Hamptons' summer evenings, cooling off from the dance floor with some fresh air.
