The Stephen Talkhouse is a Hamptons’ institution. It is inarguably the most popular and famous bar on the East End. Since it opened in 1970 the place has been known for its’ casual, laid-back, and unpretentious atmosphere. It is like the bar in Star Wars, populated by an eclectic clientele composed of locals, weekend warriors, and celebrities. Since 1987 it has also offered up an amazing array of national musical acts from every genre of music---whether it’s blues or folk or country or soul. Over 50 musicians and bands that are in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame have played the Talkhouse. Prices range from $25 to $150 depending on the act, but patrons pay it in order to see their favorite acts in a room not much bigger than your living room. There are local bands playing reggae, rock or soul most nights after 10PM for a $10 cover on weekday or $30 on weekends. Talkhouse Tips: Buy a season pass to save on the costs on weekends and get there by 10PM on summer weekends if you want to avoid waiting in line. Part of the Talkhouse’s magic is the staff. Over 20 people of this tight-knit family have worked at the club for over 15 years. There’s also a sign in the front room that states: “Customers come and go. Here at the Talkhouse the employee is always right.” And finally, the layout is special. It is actually three bars in one. A front room features live music and dancing. The enclosed patio deck offers a reprieve from the music and is partially air. The Tiki Bar on the side is mostly under the stars and welcoming for the smokers. You never what to expect when you go into the Talkhouse, but it’s always a great time.
