One Ocean Yoga
1927 Scuttle Hole Dr., Bridgehampton
Taking full advantage of Bridgehampton's idyllic landscape, One Ocean ditches the concept of the traditional yoga studio for an open-air tent sprawled out on the grounds of breathtaking Channing Daughter's Winery. Yoga classes are offered in a group setting or one-on-one; the same goes for meditation sessions, Reiki, and Pranic healing.
Dan Flavin Art Institute
23 Corwith Ave., Bridgehampton
Dan Flavin was a mainstay of the community of artists that flocked to the Hamptons in the summers, and so it's fitting that there's a space here devoted to his works. This renovated firehouse (which has been stewarded by the Dia Art Foundation for its entire existence) has a permanent exhibition of Flavin's fluorescent light works on the top floor and a space for temporary exhibitions on the first floor.
Silas Marder (Closed)
120 Snake Hollow Rd., Bridgehampton
Silas Marder Gallery (located in an open-air and still-very-raw-wood barn) projects movies for all comers on Friday nights in a series called, appropriately, "Films on the Haywall." Curator Tucker Marder’s taste is eclectic but spot-on, as he plays everything from The Muppet Movie to Grizzly Man to Cool Hand Luke. Get there early enough to see the exhibition of Ryan McGinness’s sculptures and paintings, inspired by surf and skate culture.
2486 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton
NYC’s ever-expanding Juice Press now has three locations in the Hamptons (East Hampton, Southampton, and Bridgehampton), right in time for summertime cleansing. Along with their cold-pressed, organic juices, they also sell healthy, raw snacks like falafel, kale salad, and yogurt parfaits.
Round Swamp Farm Market
97 School St., Bridgehampton
This family-run market, located on an East Hampton farm that's been in the family for nine generations, sells their own produce along with fresh fish, and their own baked goods and deli items. Their Bridgehampton outpost offers the same fare as the original, including the pies, which are amazing.
203 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton
The services that business partners Lexi and Louisa (who are total experts in all things local and organic) provide here run the gamut from catering to food delivery: You can sit down for a bite, call them a few days ahead for an easy Friday night meal (a godsend after the long drive from the city), or months in advance for an elaborate wedding spread made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Topping Rose House
1 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Tpke., Bridgehampton
The Topping Rose House is a beautifully restored nineteenth-century Greek revival inn located on a one-acre working farm.
Fresh Hamptons (Closed)
203 Sag Harbor Tpk., Bridgehampton
The menu here is full of vegetarian, vegan, organic, and gluten-free options (in a variety of different portion sizes). The other buzzword that rings true at this casual, woodsy spot is local, as Chef Todd Jacobs has a long-standing relationship with the nearby farms and fisheries where he sources ingredients.
Topping Rose House Restaurant
1 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Tpk., Bridgehampton
This restaurant brought on Jean-Georges Vongerichten as a consulting chef, and while he's given the menu a bit of a culinary makeover, you can still expect to find vegetable-forward dishes sourced from the property's one-acre farm. The weekend brunch is especially great.
2468 Main St., Bridgehampton
This is the kind of classic go-to that caters to a more grown-up Hamptons crowd (lots of white pants, loafers, and pastel sweaters). That said, it's actually really fun and kind of buzzy. The mussels are always top-notch, and the bar is perpetually two to three people deep—even so, their dirty martini is totally worth it.
