People watching on Main Street and racking up credit-card debt at Intermix is no snooze, but sometimes you’ve just gotta dance until 2 a.m. (or, um, as long as you can keep your eyes open). Here’s a look at some hot spots to hit up this summer, whether your urge to party comes before noon or after midnight.

How to Have the Best Saturday Night Ever in the Hamptons

Jue Lan Club

Best Place To Spot A Real Housewife: Jue Lan Club

Nope, that’s not just any fifty-something cougar dancing next to you--the new lounge at Jue Lan Club Southampton is a mecca for Real Housewives. Before you hit the dance floor, make a dinner rez so you can try the Drunken Sea Bass.

268 Elm St., Southampton; 631-353-3610 or

Most Convenient: Southampton Social Club

After the sun sets, the back patio of this restaurant morphs into a lounge and nightclub. The outdoor spot also gets major brownie points for its location: It’s right near the train station, and there’s free parking (yessss, no valet charges).

256 Elm St., Southampton; 631-287-1400 or

Ooo, This New Hamptons App Is Like Uber, But Better

AM Southampton

Best Music: Am Southampton

This new nightclub launched by 75 Main owner Zach Erdem has become an instant Hamptons sensation. The lineup includes hip-hop Fridays and a house DJ on Saturdays. Bonus: If you have one too many negronis, there’s a designated-driver service available to take you home.

125 Tuckahoe Lane, Southampton; 516-492-0346 or


Most Fun: Ruschmeyer's

There’s something for everyone at this laid-back hotel, whether you’re looking to dance on tables or play an epic Ping-Pong match. Duck into the Electric Eel, which features a rotating schedule of live DJs; explore the Magic Garden, an outdoor oasis filled with paper lanterns; and then grab a mai tai at Sand Bar and play table tennis.

161 Second House Rd., Montauk; 631-668-2877 or

Sunset Beach

Best Outdoor Space: Sunset Beach

Fire pits? Balearic DJs on the weekends? Dancing by the ocean? We’re there. Like, every night for the rest of the summer.

35 Shore Rd., Shelter Island Heights; 631-749-2001 or


Best Boozy Brunch: Kozu

This new Japanese spot is one of the buzziest restaurants of the summer, particularly for its Saturday Champagne brunch. There’s a live DJ and it gets loud. If table dancing in your Louboutins at noon is your scene, this is a must.

136 Main St., Southampton; 631-283-7575 or

The Leo/Bob Rich

Best Newbie: The Leo

This Three Mile Harbor address is a go-to spot for nightlife venues--it’s previously been Philippe, SL East and Pink Elephant, among others. Now it’s the Leo, a gorgeous space to dance, sip a cocktail and stay up way too late.

44 Three Mile Harbor Rd., East Hampton; 631-324-3332 or
