Arthur & Sons
203 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Tpke., Bridgehampton
You could look at Arthur & Sons—a West Village favorite that’s just landed in Bridgehampton—and choose to see dissonance: The menu is loaded with marinara-drenched Italian-American classics, the bar highlights mai tais and piña coladas, and the speaker system pumps out old-school hip hop. Or you could see it for what it is: a party. Order the artichokes piccata, the spicy rigatoni alla vodka, the pistachio spumoni, and a few rounds of tiki drinks.
Hampton Library
2478 Main St., Bridgehampton
Bridgehampton’s family-focused library has gone all in on online programming. From classic story time to Toddlers’ Twist and Shout to movie nights, there’s a packed schedule with plenty of recurring events to work into kids’ weekly schedules. For older children and teens, there are Netflix watch parties and virtual college prep sessions, not to mention conversational Spanish classes. And if you’re looking to get some fresh air and a change of scenery, the library yard is open to the public for socially distanced strolling. In the library yard, masks are required, and social distancing precautions are in place. The library building is open by appointment only—call for an appointment and fill out this form.

264 Butter Ln., Bridgehampton
A converted barn in Bridgehampton is the home of SoulCycle’s latest endeavor, SoulAnnex—classes that take things off the bike and onto the mat. But don’t think that means sessions are easy—they’re still taught by SoulCycle’s high-energy, motivating instructors that regulars have come to know and trust. Classes include Torch’d, which uses body resistance, free weights, and dance for a strength-focused workout, and Housework, a Pilates-meets-high-intensity-cardio session. But there’s also Reset, a forty-five-minute guided meditation class that’s all about stillness, peace, and tranquility, and Le Stretch, meant to lengthen and relax worn-out muscles and joints.

The Bridgehampton Museum, 2368 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton
Sixty-five contemporary art galleries from around the world (including New York's Absolut Art, London's Kahn gallery, and Paris's Nil gallery) are setting up temporary outposts on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Museum for this four-day art fair (August 10 to 13 only), the biggest in the Hamptons. In addition to exploring work that spans over 55,000 square feet of exhibition space, ticket holders can sit in on furniture and design presentations and break for Aperol spritzes and fresh oysters, served on site.
