Powerhouse: The Surf Lodge in Montauk first appeared in V119, our Music Issue. V119 is available for sale now at vmagazine.myshopify.com.

Typical guest: “Atypical” comes to mind: from New Yorkers to local fishermen, and families to hipsters.

Past party foul: A nor’easter hit during Bon Jovi’s party for Hampton Water rosé last Memorial Day, moving 150 dinner guests and a show by Jessie J indoors. The manager initially refused, but then Jessie said she’d started out playing in tiny bars and could perform in one again. It ended up being one of our best shows.

Save the date: This summer we’re launching a pop-up dinner series with various chefs who love the Surf Lodge. First up are Neil Harden of abcV and 20-year-old chef Flynn McGarry of Gem.
