If you’re in the Hamptons for the Fourth of July, you’re going to want to have a cocktail or two while sitting and overlooking the water, maybe even taking in a sunset. This can be done quite easily if you know the right places to go. Here are five of our favorite places for drinks while looking out at the water—on July 4 or any other summer day.
East Hampton Point
Overlooking Three Mile Harbor, the restaurant couples a striking setting with exceptional contemporary American cuisine. The nautically themed interior features a full-size mahogany sloop with a mast that reaches the ceiling cupola, a gentle reminder of the sea just outside the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
Dockers in East Quogue
A lively restaurant and bar overlooking the water, complete with “The Most Beautiful Sunsets & Water Views in the Hamptons“. With our 180 waterfront seats, 2 outdoor waterside living rooms, 3 bars, and a menu that is an eclectic mix of Creative American Cusine with an emphasis on fresh seafood, steaks and lobster.
Navy Beach in Montauk
Montauk’s favorite beachfront restaurant, Navy Beach serves casual coastal cuisine in a laid back, family-friendly setting. Positioned on a 200-foot private beach, the restaurant offers prime seating on the sand and some of the best sunsets in the Hamptons. Boaters are welcome to anchor in the protected waters of Fort Pond Bay. (631) 668-6868.
Gurney’s Inn in Montauk
When you’re visiting the finest oceanfront resort on the coast, you would expect only the freshest seafood available. And that’s exactly what you’ll get at The Sea Grille.
Rumba in Hampton Bays
Along with great food they have a wonderful list of fun rum concoctions and specialty margaritas. They also have the largest collection of aged rum on the island. The wine list, which features many incredible local varieties and some few California favorites, was hand selected by the owners, truly bringing their favorites to your table, with a water view!
