AN EPIC DECADE
THE SURF LODGE CELEBRATES AN IMPRESSIVE MILESTONE WITH A ROSTER OF BIG-NAME SUMMER PERFORMERS. BY TIM LATTERNER
The Surf Lodge celebrates an impressive milestone with a roster of big-name summer performers.
For the past ten years, in-the-know Hamptonites looking for the perfect night out have flocked to The Surf Lodge. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer, the hotel-restaurant-music-venue remains at the heart of Montauk’s party scene, hosting fun-filled nights at its popular bar. “Since Day One, it has really been about creating cultural experiences. Hopefully, it has just gotten better,” says owner Jayma Cardoso. Looking toward the future, Cardoso says, “The next 10 years is really about continuing to grow and become a valued member of the Montauk community. But, for now, it’s really about creating and sharing experiences with our guests and focusing on what we do.”
Pulling out all the stops for the anniversary this summer, The Surf Lodge is bringing in big-name performers such as Ben Harper, Kurt Vile, and Lupe Fiasco. Throughout the week, the restaurant is still flooded with locals and celebrities, all ordering the freshly caught seafood. In an area that’s very aware when an establishment “just isn’t working,” this spot’s impressive run means that, so far, it must be doing something right. Here’s to 10 more years of fun! 183 Edgemere St., 631-483-5037; thesurflodge.com
