The staff were very friendly and offered good suggestions on bike routes. The selection of bikes was adequate for our needs. Overall, it was a nice way to spend a cloudy day in the Hamptons.

Wolffer Estate Vineyard

Reviewed By Gabriel H - Bellaire, Texas, United States

We stopped at Wolffer during our three-day wine-tasting visit to the East End of Long Island. This winery is in a lovely location and the building itself is an attractive venue. While you can taste indoors, the back terrace overlooking a carefully manicured and maintained vineyard is clearly the way to go. There are several flights to choose from and are tastefully presented in small decanters with clean, modern-looking wine glasses. The terrace is scrupulously clean, service is gentle, attentive and friendly. Wolffer produces a variety of Whites, Reds and Roses. Among the Reds, we liked the Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir best; the Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling were the most favored among the whites. We didn't try the Roses, but enjoyed the Nobless Oblige sparlking wine.

We went the first week of June, so it was still practically empty. The bath houses and the snack bar were all closed. But it was still a great experience with an amazing view. We were able to park in the nearby lot for free and hang out at the beach for a while.

The Stephen Talkhouse

Reviewed By jvr13 - Long Island, NY

This place would thrive just by location, location, location. In the summer, Hamptons see-and-be seeners would show up, pay most any price to see most any artist. The Talkhouse could just coast and succeed on momentum...but they don't. I'm on the email list of 15-20 music venues. Only one asks my opinion (the Talkhouse) in their "would you pay X to see (pick an artist) to perform". I'm sure it's a useful tool for them and keeps me engaged. Their annual Wounded Warrior Benefit is a wonderful cause and they are commended for their effort. What prompts me to write this today is the exceptional treatment we received last night when we went to see THIRD WORLD perform. We showed up early hoping to get one of the scarce seats at the bar. The Manager told us that we didn't need to wait on line and that she would put a reserved sign on the seats that we wanted. When I attempted to tip her upon entry, she simply would not accept it. We spent an hour at the back bar and the bartender there was great. With the band doing a soundcheck an hour before the doors were opened, I entered through an open door (by the back bar) and stood on the side to listen. Most places would have had me leave,...no one said a word to me. When we did enter and sat at our "reserved seats" two bartenders asked our names and remembered them the whole night. As for the place itself, it's old, has character and charm and it's a bar so people will tend to talk. The sound is scaled well for the room. They book great acts and price them fairly. It's just a landmark place and a cultural icon. Long live Stephen Talkhouse...and thanks for your hospitality.

Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center

Open annually from May through October. Open to the general public, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays. The house, and its adjacent studio, give visitors a glimpse of how artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner lived and worked. A National Historic Landmark.

Reviewed By nonlodico - Paris, France

I loved this place even more as I tried to visit several times, in the years, and this time it was the good opening slot. You can visit the Krasner-Pollock residence opened in 1956,in Springs- East Hamptons ,where they artists lived and the atelier where the famous artist used to paint his works of art.
It so exciting and moving at the same time to step into the magic room where the artist use to work. In the Study, you have , of course to wear special slippers as th floor itself it's a piece of art , covered with colorful paint, typical sign of his pictorial technique .
You can also sit in the calm garden that hosted artists and friends in the past.
Check out opening hours , normally from Thursday to Saturday 1pm to 5 pm. and visit the little library. Entrance fee 5 $. Go and visit.
