Life on Long Island
1 OAK Southampton on the way
With Memorial Day weekend 2014 now only days away, more new nightlife spots continue to arrive in the Hamptons; the latest being 1 OAK Southampton.
For those unfamiliar with 1 OAK (an acronym of mantra "1 Of A Kind"), it’s not just a single club but an international party brand, with involvement in either temporary residencies or permanent outposts in places such as Manhattan, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Mexico City. Its bashes are generally large, often attended by celebrities and are usually centered on sessions from superstar DJs.
1 OAK Southampton will be open starting Saturday, May 24, setting up at 125 Tuckahoe Lane -- an address that Hamptons clubbers should be accustomed to visiting, as over the past decade it has hosted such now-defunct hangouts as South Pointe (the venue where pop singer Justin Bieber was allegedly involved in an altercation with a Hampton Bays resident), RDV East, Stereo By The Shore, LaPlaya and Tavern. As of this writing, many details are still to be announced -- but according to the Facebook page of its sister spot 1 OAK NYC, popular city-based DJs Jesse Marco and Jus Ske are respectively scheduled to spin on May 24 and Sunday, May 25.
