(Long Island, NY) This past week there were so many Hamptonite celebrities enjoying the hot summer weather, elegant soirees and fabulous Hampton eateries, like the Tide Runners restaurant in Hampton Bays located right on the Shinnecock Canal. Tide Runners is a Hamptons hot spot. The food is always delicious coupled with dining alfresco by the water while the sun gloriously sets over the Hampton turquoise waterways watching the boats go by.
Another famous hot Hampton’s nightclub is the recently opened Pink Elephant located at 281 County Road in Southampton.
Owners Robert Montwaid and David Sarner decided to expand their Chelsea club to Southampton complete with custom-heated pagoda-style cabanas and a phermone-releasing scent system turning the 6,000 square foot beach into a mini-Ibiza. This past weekend darlings, my sources tell me that supermodel turned model agent over the top Janice Dickenson’s choice was the fabulously over the top Pink Elephant who looked positively over-served.
Cain Southampton located at 1181 North Sea Rd.; Southampton caters to the glamorous regulars like Cynthia Rowley, Lydia Hearst and Howard Stern.
Another one of my favorite hangouts in Southampton is The Drivers Seat located at 62 Jobs Lane Southampton Long Island. This special cozy restaurant has a warm relaxed and friendly atmosphere making its patrons feel at home. “The Seascape” a triangular stained glass window in the rear of the restaurant complements the pinnacle of the cathedral ceiling creating a romantic chic ambience in the restaurant. The juicy burgers are the best in town. The menu is American gourmet cuisine and International entrees including Italian, French and Asian. The Drivers Seat also has Gourmet seafood and shellfish as edible main dishes. The rich tantalizing desserts are homemade and a dessert cart is brought to your table at the end of each tasty meal.
On the weekends “Luma” a contemporary jazz group proudly performs. The Driver Seat darlings is the premier Southampton’s meeting place, just perfect for indoor and outdoor dining, cocktails, lunch and speaking about having a fabulous lunch in the Hamptons veteran soap star Susan Lucci was lunching with gal pals on the patio at The Drivers Seat in Southampton. Johnny Damon, Yankee Centerfielder and his very pregnant wife graciously signed autographs for fans throughout lunch on the patio at the Drivers Seat in Southampton.
The Star Room in Wainscott is always packed with style. Stylish celebrities like Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky who recently celebrated her 34th birthday which I reported earlier at a room filled with Hamptonite Stars in the Star Room.
In Sag Harbor, Haven is the place to go for entertaining Reggae tunes and a quick cocktail. The club is wonderful for mingling socially and dancing. It is also nice to know that they are one of the few places in the Hamptons that is opened year round.
