The crisp salt air of Montauk's sweeping oceanscape does its part to conjure an intoxicating, laid-back charm among the hipster crowd that has swarmed Montauk's lounge scene in recent years. And Sole East, located across the pond from Montauk Village, has taken center stage. A 1920's Montauk Tudor landmark building—which features 60 renovated bungalow-inspired rooms, outfitted in rattan club chairs and Balinese loungers, and seven garden cabanas—is the site of this beach resort lounge club that attracts loyalists day and night. During the daytime, sun worshipers span the pool in their lounge chairs, taking an occasional dip to escape from the afternoon heat. By 4pm, the main pool area transforms into a post-beach dance lounge and cocktail hour soiree, and the syncopated rhythms of headlining DJs keep the dance floor bouncing until 3am. By nightfall, the Backyard supper club serves up plates of healthy organics and reliable staples, from seared Atlantic salmon to New York strip steak. The restaurant's white-on-white décor is punctuated by colorful flower bouquets. After dinner, t ake a late-night stroll along the bamboo-flanked walkways for a moonlight view of Lake Montauk.
