The heat is on and summer is in full swing everywhere. For a certain slice of sophisticated New Yorkers, this means getting out of the sweltering city and heading for that idyllic string of communities on Long Island’s East End, also known as the Hamptons—and where no stay is complete without a visit to Southampton Social Club.
Considered the Go-To spot for veteran Hamptonites and newcomers alike, this vibrant nightlife venue located just steps away from the Southampton train station is back for another exciting season. Best known for its lushly appointed and abundant outdoor space accented by a fire pit adorned backyard, SSC is the Hamptons’ premier one-stop destination for world-class fine dining, hip entertainment, private parties, weddings, corporate gatherings, special events and VIP occasions of all kinds.
Its South Beach inspired cabanas can each accommodate 10 to 12 people, offering the perfect intimate setting for either early evening cocktails and appetizers or an after-hours bash; The Library/VIP Stage with space for up to 30 people has multiple menu options and turns into a bustling nightclub on the weekends. The Outdoor Cabana Area/Sunset Bar can accommodate up to 75 people for dining and 150 for cocktails with a separate entrance, a private bar and also features multiple menu options.
Revamped for 2018, SSC continues to boast one of most impressive menus on the East end courtesy of Executive Chef Scott Kampf, a native New Yorker and culinary veteran for more than two decades who also helms the kitchen at Southampton Social Club’s sister restaurant, Union Cantina. Among some of the scrumptious fare he is serving up again this year at SSC are appetizers and sides such as SSC Lobster Rolls, Pistachio Crusted Tofu, Truffled Hand Cut Fries or try one of the many delicious Sushi Rolls. Entrées include Twin Lobster Tails, Caribbean Spiced Mahi-Mahi, Diver Scallops and Seared Wasabi Pea Crusted Tuna. For dessert, there is Funnell Fries, Chocolate Decadence and even Junior’s Famous Cheesecake.
The restaurant is open for dinner and late-night cocktails Wednesday through Sunday all summer long. Reservations are suggested. In addition to the summer, SSC is available year-round for private events of all shapes and sizes. Reservations are recommended.
Offering all of this and more, Summer 2018 started off as the best season yet. In addition to presenting a variety of different DJ’s each week (DJ Loki, DJ Chris Bachman, DJ Rick Wonder, and more). Also, on hand for many nights performances, SSC features live entertainment performing alongside the DJ’s. SSC features a wide variety of events including Miami Vice Night (Monday, July 2, 2018), Country Music Night (Thursday, July 26, 2018), and Rosé All-Day Brunch alongside all these VIP Fundraisers that SSC hosts like the Southampton Animal Shelter, Southampton Hospital, and Southampton Art Center to name a few.
