The Hamptons are full of amazing nightlife from Quogue to Montauk, so here are a few suggestions to make summer 2013 memorable whether you want to take advantage of the summer weather and grab drinks outside, looking for a party and dance atmosphere or really want to kickoff summer right with a champagne brunch.

Tide Runners (7 North Road, Hampton Bays, 631-728-7373, www.tiderunners.com) located on the Shinnecock Canal in Hamptons Bays is a great spot to stop by to take in the sunset during happy hour. They have a DJ or live music on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

For one of the best outdoor bars in the Hamptons head to CowFish (258 East Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays, 631-594-3868, cowfishrestaurant.com) and then take the free ferry to Rumba (43 Canoe Place Road, Hampton Bays, 631-594-3544, www.rumbarumbar.co) for fruity tropical cocktails.

The Surf Lodge (183 Edgemere Street, Montauk, 631-668-1562, www.thesurflodge.com) returns to the Hamptons with a killer lineup of performances planned for summer 2013, kicking off Memorial Day weekend with Portugal. The Man.
