Location, location, location! On the infamous Dune Road, enjoy this restaurant/bar by boat or by car. The night starts off with a relaxing drink watching the sun slowly disappear until the live entertainment stirs up the Long Island and Manhattan summer retreaters. It’s a lively bar scene that cannot be skipped if you are only out here for one weekend.

Hudson Bar in the Hudson Hotel

The grand entrance of a lime green-lit escalator sets the fairytale mood for this hotel bar. Bright-lit floors, mural-painted ceilings and top-shelf liquor makes for a never-ending night of dancing here. When the weather’s appropriate, move the party to the rooftop garden lounge with funky chairs and life-size watering cans for an Alice in Wonderland approach. Chic attire required—this bar has been the backdrop for many TV shows including Sex and The City. Don’t let your best outfit spend the night in your closet.
