The ROY City Guide: Montauk Edition

There’s nothing quite like summer on the East Coast! ROY founder, Hannah Collins, shares her local-approved guide to Montauk.

The Lobster Roll

Literally the first place we hit when we land in Montauk. We always go for the seared Tuna Steak Sandwich and the Hot Lobster Roll. They also have incredible pie!

The Dock

A one-of-a-kind establishment right on the fishing docks run by true locals. Be cool here or they won’t let you come back, which I love.

The Surf Lodge

The best for live music and dancing. It makes me feel old but it’s full of YPPs which means you know it’s a good time.

Learn More

Crow’s Nest

My favorite place to enjoy cocktails on the beach and then meander into dinner and a bonfire after. The bar is always bumping and it has the most delicious Mediterranean food.

Left Hand Coffee

Chill vibes and great coffee. New to town and a great addition – it’s also my go-to post Soul Cycle spot.

The bontemps families took inspiration from the beaches on the East Coast and the South of France to create a brand that shows a love of summer and care for sustainability. Truly the best Montauk gear in my opinion!

Hither Hills Racquet Club

It’s literally the opposite of a stuffy tennis club, only for chill people with good vibes. They literally say it as the first thing on their website!

Learn More


Just like the Brooklyn location it’s the place to go for delicious pizza and they rock a natty wine list plus a tiki bar!

Learn More

The Montauket

The spot for live music and sunset gazing on weeknights. There’s also an incredible vintage shop out front that I always go tipsy shopping in and buy something fabulous!

Get the seafood tower and bottle of rosé on a sunny afternoon! It’s a ‘cruise up on your boat’ type of place.

My Front Yard

And last but not least, dinner on the beach in my front yard is my true go to! The Montauk way is to invite your neighbors and friends over, grab some fresh local catch from Gosman’s Fish Market and casually let the evening unwind.
