Art, Adventure & Aficionados

Art, Adventure & Aficionados Activities on the North Fork It's great to reconnect and take a break with friends and family, but winery hopping, salon treatments, golfing, fitness classes and even a day at the beach are not for everyone. Find your fun outside the box—the East End is full of unique places for the less common, and likely more memorable pursuits that you may have in mind. Consider a painting class at a local art gallery, a foodie party, an outing at wildlife refuge, or even an old fashioned (but completely humane) gentlemen's hunt. We have dug a bit deeper to inspire you to explore the North Fork's road less traveled where you will find fewer crowds, and more personal attention. It promises to be a great East End Experience!

Whether you are arranging entertaining diversions for out of town guests (or you are the out of town guest), or looking for a professional theater experience while you enjoy a getaway in the Hamptons, be sure to check the now showing calendar of the Bay Street Theater. In addition to offering professional theatrical productions, this little gem on Sag Harbor’s Long Wharf also offers top music, cabaret and comedy performances while earning a name for itself as a local arts center, offering classes and programs for adults and children to discover their own hidden talents, or enjoy the work of their friends and neighbors.

The Bay Street Theater is also available for private parties and events, from corporate retreats, and yes of course, even weddings and other celebrations.  All of this is conveniently located in the bustling village of Sag Harbor, a favorite destination for local Hamptonites and out-of-towners, for its world class restaurants, lovely boutiques, beautiful deep-water marina, and just fabulous waterfront views. 

So if the club scene is not your thing, and you have had enough of the cocktail party and gala circuit, set aside some time for dinner in the village and a show at the Bay Street Theater.

Salt Air Farm-Gentleman's Estate

1535 New Suffolk Road
Cutchogue, NY 11935
(631) 734-4180

Corporate entertaining is one way to bind your clients to you by showing them they matter and that you are unique. Instead of the expected golf outing or dinners at a posh restaurant, can you imagine the buzz a gentleman's estate outing would create? Wide skies, sweeping vistas, creeks, shoreline, and open lands are the backdrops for led game bird hunts and clay shoots led by an experienced guide, owner Dan Heston, a guy who knows hunting and the land like few others. For those inclined to gentler activities, croquette and tea on a lawn surrounded by flowering hydrangeas is perfect. All arrangements for a superior event for corporations and bachelor parties can be taken care of arranged. This is upper class with no pretension, substance not frilly, and style, not stuffy.

Gather your friends and uncork your artistic side with painting and art lessons at The South Street Gallery's lounge-style loft. Amy Worth and her staff will be your guide as you dip your toe in the artistic possibilities while you enjoy local North Fork wines and locally-sourced refreshments. As relaxing as a spa day can be, we know it's not for everyone, so this offers a great alternative. Who can deny the allure of sipping on a glass of a Long Island chardonnay in one hand with an artist's brush in the other.

These very sociable, fun events are customized for each party, so contact The South Street Gallery for ideas and details.
