Long Island’s much-talked-about towns collectively known as “the Hamptons” are more than just a luxe summer getaway and place for celebs to hobnob — they’re also home to gorgeous venues for hosting unique parties and events. Imagine exchanging wedding vows alongside lapping waves, toasting to a birthday against a backdrop of ocean blues, or celebrating corporate success in a beautifully-located elegant ballroom. The Hamptons offer all of this and more, with resorts perched on marinas and beaches boasting chic coastal style and luxurious amenities. View our list of curated Hamptons wedding venues and event spaces to find the right locale for the celebration you’ve always dreamed of.

The Ocean Resort, formerly Westhampton Bath and Tennis, boasts breathtaking ocean views and a lovely spa — perfect for event day indulgence and relaxation. The spot’s event venue, OceanBleu, offers panoramic views of the Atlantic to make oceanfront wedding dreams come true. Couples love its intimate ballroom with 20-foot windows and decadent chandeliers. We love that you can take in the beach, but can also have your wedding entirely inside — for those who love the vista, but not all the sand. Other couples appreciate perfect photo spots along the paramount rocks and splashing around for the camera during low tide. After the ballroom celebration is over, host an after party on the beach to end your celebration in true Hamptons style.
The Ballroom Capacity: up to 220
The Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club offers guests 1200 sq. feet of private, beachfront property on which to entertain. In addition to a pristine beach, the charming coastal venue boasts oceanfront wrap-around decks perfect for cocktail parties, and an elegant ballroom for your wedding reception. The all-white ballroom is a bright and open indoor space with a white palette and beautiful wood floors set against panoramic ocean and bay views. After your perfect wedding, birthday party, or corporate event, host an after party, compete with a bonfire, on the beach for a memorable ending.
Ballroom Capacity: 240 (seated) – 400 (standing)
Modern rooftop pool meets countryside chic at the ever-stunning Topping Rose House located in the heart of Bridgehampton. The sprawling property offers a multitude of event spaces, including the pool and patio space, a 75-person restaurant backing up to a spacious lawn, a classic plantation-style house with 22 guest rooms, and other studio and cottage spaces. Topping Rose House’s featured restaurant is farm-to-table in the truest of forms, growing produce on their own farm space. The pool and patio area offer the perfect party space with an adjacent, indoor seating area. Picture an intimate gathering within the glass event space, followed by an poolside cocktail hour — you can never go wrong with floating pool decor.
The Barn Capacity: 60 (seated) – 100 (standing)
The Studio Capacity: 100 (seated) – 150 (standing)
Wölffer Estate Vineyard
Walking down an aisle framed by grapevines is just one of the perks available at Wölffer Estate Vineyard. When it comes to Hamptons wedding venues, this serene oasis delivers an elegant European-inspired backdrop just two hours outside of the city. Couples love the garden courtyard for its breathtaking panoramic view of 55-acres of vineyards. From birthday parties and weddings to corporate events and anniversary dinners, the venue’s multiple event spaces allow for any type of party and guests will get lost in the beauty of the perfectly-manicured spot while enjoying a selection of the vineyard’s sustainably-farmed wines.
Capacity: up to 175
With seven suites, three cottages, and one house, the Inn at Windmill Lane offers an elegant option for intimate stays and events. The property emphasizes quality craftsmanship and beautiful design (including a large collection of contemporary artwork), making it the perfect Hamptons wedding venue for a luxury celebration. Its full-service concierge ensures that every need, no matter how small, is met promptly. Two outdoor spaces — The Park and The Sunken Garden — provide the opportunity to celebrate in well-maintained lush settings, surrounded by organic floral beauty.
The Sunken Garden Capacity: up to 125
The Park Capacity: up to 200
One of the most sought-after Hamptons wedding venues on the Atlantic Ocean, Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa is perfect for a dreamy beach wedding. The spot offers a coveted stretch of beachfront at its year-round luxury resort. We love how there are multiple decks to turn a beach wedding into a highly-sophisticated affair, and sandy locales create a more carefree vibe like at this lovely wedding — that included the couple’s precious puppy in the nuptials. Wedding receptions can conjure a romantic ambiance in a draped tent with lights and lanterns, or curate a more intimate feel in the Regent Cocktail Club.
Regent Cocktail Club Capacity: 80 (seated) – 130 (standing)
Spa Deck Capacity: 420 (seated) – 500 (standing)
Gurney’s Star Island Resort and Marina, formerly Montauk Yacht Club Resort and Marina, is located on Lake Montauk, offering waterfront views of the expansive marina. The luxe, chic décor of the resort features a creamy white palette with raw wood accents for a cozy, seaside vibe. Its newly-renovated Waterfront Ballroom is as gorgeous as it sounds, with light wood floors, spectacular views, and an outdoor terrace. The ballroom’s pre-function space provides the perfect spot for cocktails before your wedding dinner and dancing or corporate awards ceremony begins. With several outdoor event spaces, as well as indoor meeting rooms, the resort offers the ultimate in beautiful flexibility.
Waterfront Ballroom Capacity: 216 (seated) – 250 (standing)
Parrish Art Museum is rooted deep into the Hamptons community, and is known for the vast array of events hosted at the location. Situated on fourteen acres of land, the space is nestled perfectly into the surrounding landscape. The 1,000 square-foot interior is enveloped in windows and glass walls, allowing an abundance of natural light to pour in and the lush scenery to be part of every celebration. These windows overlook a vast meadow that is an art installation courtesy of Mother Nature. Parrish Art Museum events are inspired by light, water, and the sky to evoke emotion within celebrants.
