Welcome to Southampton

The opulent epitome of the glamorous Hamptons lifestyle.
Southampton is the place to see and be seen during The Hamptons’ busy social season. Each summer, the socialites of New York City and New England descend upon Southampton to enjoy polo matches, fashion shows, fine dining, charity balls, and a chic nightlife scene. One of the most prestigious areas of The Hamptons boasts celebrity and high-end residents, many of whom reside in the “estate” portion of the village where homes situated on multi-acre lots afford peace, privacy, and ample elbow room to their lucky residents. 
Southampton was founded in 1640, with a whale fishery established four years later. This would be the first of its kind in New England, sparking the beginning of a vast industry. Named after Southampton, England, the community boasts over 100 historical markers, districts, and points of interest. Today, luxury shopping, five-star dining, and stylish cocktail bars bring refined luxury to this longtime playground for New York’s elite.

Local Lifestyle

Both occasional visitors, seasonal residents, and those seeking permanent refuge from the grit of New York City have all found refuge in Southampton. One of the most desirable communities in the area of Southampton is the living face of the glamorous Hamptons lifestyle usually depicted in television, film, and on the glossy pages of societal magazines. Around 70,000 people call Southampton home year-round, but this number can easily swell to over 100,000 during the summer months. Glamorous gatherings, delectable dinners, and energetic nights out enjoying colorful cocktails are frequent indulgences in this quintessential hotspot for lucky locals.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Southampton is fraught with delicious eateries serving authentic Italian cuisine in both casual and upscale settings. Sant Ambroeus is just one of several comforting options within town, boasting a rustic dining room and tables adorned with crisp, white coverings. Gelati, Italian espresso, and alfresco dining are enjoyed during the summer, along with sweet treats from their mouthwatering pastry display case. Homemade burrata, lobster salad, and a timeless cacio e pepe are just a few dinner-time favorites that have been enjoyed at various locations for multiple generations.

Tutto Il Giorno is a more glamorous option for Italian fare served in a modern dining room featuring distressed wooden accents. Fish in parchment, grilled octopus, shellfish stew, and a varied selection of housemaid pasta creations are also savored on their garden patio beneath shady umbrellas during the summer months. 
Furniture, rugs, elegant lighting, and other accessories for the home are the specialty of Homenature. With a Southampton location to pair with their popular shop in New York City‘s Flatiron District, Homenature is a convenient option to find anything and everything elegant for a home in The Hamptons. From Scandinavian to mid-century modern to rustic and glamorous, Homenature’s selection is extensive, impressive, and all-encompassing.
The latest in fitness fashion and accessories are found at Bandier. No matter what fitness regimen you enjoy, exercise is a daily part of life in Southampton, and no other shop offers quite the luxurious selection which Bandier does.
