LDV Hospitality kicked off their second year running the restaurant and nightlife scene at Gurney's Resort and Seawater Spa in Montauk over Memorial Day weekend with a summer kick-off bash co-hosted by Esquire. Guests enjoyed libations and bites from the Regent Cocktail Club and Firepit (we heard that Rosé was the unsurprising drink of choice this weekend, and cucumber gimlets were flying out the door) as well as a soundtrack by DJ Nicole Leone and a surprise set by Stretch Armstrong. Spotted were NBA star (and former Mr. Kim Kardashian) Kris Humphries, along with a few Victoria's Secret models, EJ Johnson from "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" (NBA star Magic Johnson's son) and Ryan Serhant from "Million-Dollar Listing."
"The Sloppy Tuna was charging $40 just to get in," said Steve, an equity-sales trader. "But once we got inside it was as good as ever."
And, to many a brah's disappointment, Cyril's Fish House on Napeague wasn't open.
"It was a sad day," Teddy a research analyst said. "We have been going there for years. I can't believe it's closed. It's a cruel world we live in."
Considered to be one of the South Fork's most famous bars, it was packed for 34 years. But apparently, they lost a battle with the town over numerous building code violations.
Jue Lan Club opened to rave reviews from Wall Streeters this weekend. The clubby Chinese restaurant opened a 6,000-square-foot evening spot in Southampton.
"The DJ was great and the kitchen stayed open until closing," said Nick, an equity-sales trader. "We stayed there until 4 a.m."
