For many New Yorkers, it’s not a true summer if you don’t get the chance to hit up the beautiful beaches of Montauk and the Hamptons at least once. And it’s definitely not a trip to Montauk if you don’t experience a concert at The Surf Lodge.
One of the trendiest spots in town, The Surf Lodge is a hip, coastal-themed hotel that feels like it just popped out of your favorite influencer's Instagram account (chances are they’ve probably been). Every summer, The Surf Lodge turns up the volume in the Hamptons for its Summer Concert Series, and this year is no different. In partnership with Grey Goose, acts like John Legend, Willow Smith, and St. Lucia have graced the stage set against Fort Pond.
But if you’re already starting to get that weird feeling summer is coming to an end, don’t fret. There’s still plenty of time to catch an act in Montauk. Willie Nelson’s son Lukas will be closing out the series on Sept. 2, but not before Lupe Fiasco, Daya, Brett Young, and more take to the stage. Or, if you want to dance your heart out, stop by on a night with DJ sets from artists like Sofi Tukker, St Vicious, and Rüfüs Du Sol. Whatever concert you visit, make sure to try the Series’ signature cocktail: a Grey Goose and soda made with grapefruit, pineapple, and lemongrass essence.
But even if you can’t make it out east, Grey Goose is bringing a taste of Montauk to NYC on Aug. 11 with a Summer Concert Series pop-up at the Williamsburg Hotel. The event, which will be on the hotel’s impressive rooftop, will make people stuck in the city feel like they're at the beach complete with a concert from St. Lucia, DJ sets, signature Grey Goose cocktails, and stunning views of the New York City skyline.
The pop-up is non-ticketed and on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 5 p.m. and space will be limited.
