Have You Heard Of The Celebrities’ Secret Town in New York?

Day Trips and Travel Sag Harbor Main Street Fernanda Paronetto

Have you heard of the celebrities’ secret town in New York? Sag Harbor is a charming village in Long Island that dates back to the early 1700’s. It’s a great place to explore over the weekend!

I always tell people about how beautiful the state of New York is and, to prove how amazing day trips or weekend experiences can be, I picked one of my favorite spots to show you!

Sag Harbor is a charming village in Long Island that dates back to the yearly 1700’s. It was considered the 2nd most important seaport, after New York City, of course and was known as a thriving whaling port from 1760 through 1850.

It’s close the to the North Fork, where we recently did a video at an amazing winery called Macari Vineyards and saw one of the biggest wine bottles I had ever seen! Obs: It’s another great place for a weekend adventure!

Anyway, Sag Harbor it one of my favorite spots and “Yes!”, celebrities love it too! It’s the celebrities’ secret town in New York, that they head to when they want to get away from everything and everyone. Sorry celebs! Busted!

I chose a few spots in town to share and help you with your itinerary, while you’re there. But, there is just so much to do that I’m sure you’ll be able to explore on your own and find out other great places!

I do recommend to go for, at least, a weekend, but you can also risk a day trip! Last case, you can just book last minute a room at one of their beautiful hotels.

Oh! And before you start, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and spread the love for New York!


Main Street

Sag Harbor’s Main Street is so charming that you can literally spend a few hours just walking up and down.

You’ll have a great time exploring all the local shops, design stores, gift shops, great restaurants, salons, book stores – like Harbor Books on the picture above, cafés, donut shops, and so much more!

I couldn’t stop walking into every single venue I found and even the local market I walked in to find fresh and delicious goodies that are not always easy to find in the city!

The architecture really resembles those cute port towns from centuries ago and everything is super well preserved.

It’s a great place not only for family and kids, but also friends, couples, elderlies. There is a place for everyone to enjoy the beauty of the little town!

I mean, it’s got something for everyone!


Baron’s Cove

As I said in the video, Sag Harbor has many great hotels to stay, but this time I chose to share Baron’s Cove.

We’ve featured them before and I really love the property! They are a 4-star waterfront hotel with 67 rooms and fantastic amenities.

There are rooms with private garden terraces, harbor loft suites with balconies, village rooms as well as dog-friendly rooms – so your canine friend is super welcome!

You’ll find countless activities to try, like the heated saltwater pool, tennis court, gym, spa services, summer BBQs and lobster bakes, fireplace during winter, etc. And still, complimentary beach service with transportation, beach picnic lunch options, as well as an onsite concierge! Can’t get any better!

In addition, Baron’s Cove is also the only venue in Sag Harbor featuring live entertainment every night during the summer season. So, there is always something fun going on!

Famous artists, musicians, literary names such as Jackson Pollock, Billy Joel and Truman Capote have been regular guests, back in the days! Pretty awesome, right?

Their restaurant serves all-American food and has a fantastic and privileged view of the marina, that is just across the road.

It’s location is very convenient and it’s just a few minutes walking from Main Street!

Even though it can get quite chilly during the winter, it’s great to go with a loved one, or friends to enjoy a peaceful weekend. So yes! It’s a great place to go any time of the year!

I love Italian restaurants, so I decided to feature one of the best gems in town: Dopo La Spiaggia.

All restauranteurs, foodies, celebrities and the gorgeous crowd in town are always there enjoying their delicious dishes and drinks!

Owned by Chef Maurizio Marfoglia – that was super kind to meet us at the restaurant – has created a fantastic, seasonal menu with a variety of local ingredients. All very, very fresh!

The sun was out, so we decided to sit at the charming outdoor patio, with another great view of the marina. The patio has a cozy environment, with tables set close together and a breathtaking green wall from end to end!

Menus are updated regularly, and time time we chose two dishes to try:

  • Tagliolini – squid ink pasta, bay scallops, shrimp, calamari, chili and tomato. Note: it does have a spicy kick!
  • Branzino – poached sea bass, tomatoes, spinach with white wine.

Of course, both dishes paired with fantastic wine – one white, one red! As Italians say: Perffeto!

I’ve also heard from friends that other dishes are also must-haves, like the super creamy burrata, the homemade ravioli is perfectly done with wild mushrooms, ricotta cheese, vidallia and crushed tomato sauce. Plus, all sea dishes are very tasty and well-served.

Ah! Dessert, yes! You can try their stellar tiramisu and the berry tart with crème Anglaise. The portions are good to share, in case you were curious!

Buon Appetito!

Hours:
Monday, Thursday – Friday: Dinner from 5:30pm

Saturday & Sunday: Lunch and dinner from 12 noon

Last, but surely not least, we finished the day at The Buddha Berry, a dessert spot to satisfy your sweet tooth!

The spot is loved by everyone in town! They not only sell self-serve frozen yogurts, but also crêpes, waffles and still have a coffee bar, with organic coffee!

They’ve recently started serving vegan yogurt with almond milk and natural ingredients, which had been a huge success!

Of course, I decided to try their famous frozen yogurt. Nancy, the owner, sources countless toppings from all over the world and brings them to her delicious store. There are so many options that it was actually quite hard to pick and choose the ones I wanted. I mean, I wanted to serve myself a bit of each one! Lol!

As I said, there are so many more places to visit and explore in town, so don’t be shy to walk around and get lost – literally! Oh! And do visit their Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum, set in an 1845 Greek Revival mansion featuring whaling exhibits and a shop with handmade gifts.

I’m sure you’re going to have one of the best weekends away from the city and will want to come back again, and again, and again!

Founded in the 1960’s Baron’s Cove frequently hosted big names like Truman Capote, Jackson Pollock and Paul Newman. The hotel recently passed through a 2 year renovation and is at full speed ready for the Summer Season!

To start, it’s located around 100 miles from Manhattan. In a few hours, you’ll get there to have a fantastic time!

They offer 67 super charming rooms and villas, a heated salt water pool, tennis court, fitness studio and spa services. What else? Complimentary beach service with transportation.

Also, their dining options and experiences are fantastic. They have an all-American restaurant where you can enjoy your meals and take advantage of the gorgeous view from their porch. There is nothing like an outdoor meal, right? Chef Matty Boudreau uses fresh and local ingredients to prepare his delicious dishes.

In addition, the Lobby Lounge is great for drinks, while the outdoor terrace is perfect for enjoying some small bites to hold off ’till dinner!

The hotel offers everything for a perfect Summer at Sag Harbor. From an outdoor pool, spa and fitness center, to the beach just steps away, they have it all! If you forgot something at home, they have a small store to purchase anything you might need.

“On foot, stroll up and down Main Street to discover singular boutiques, galleries, and local museums, or dine at the most widely-acclaimed restaurants in the Hamptons.

By boat, explore the stunning local waterways, coves, and marinas. Or drive just minutes to the freshest local farm stands and some of the finest ocean beaches on the East Coast.”

In short, do visit them during this upcoming summer in Sag Harbor.

It’s surely one of the best times of the year to enjoy all the outdoor activities. And also, watch a gorgeous sunset, explore the North Fork lavender fields (Yup! We have lavender in New York!), and experience tastings in the local wineries.

Alchemy (AL-KER-MI) noun: Any magical power or process of transforming a common substance into a substance of value.

Alchemy Produx was created by the Australian duo, Sara and Tristan. These artisan candles are all hand-made with 100{c8399be91965ff06a5fa23750b49beaf0bc09e4b1c94b50d52f75c5d1635bbfd} natural soy wax.

“It was five years ago when experimenting with soy wax lead us to this accidental combination in our backgrounds of Fashion Design and Chemistry to create these unique candles. This unlikely combination led to the beginning of ‘Alchemy Produx’, a fusing of science and designer home wares.”

All Alchemy candles are individually hand-poured into some pretty cool chemistry glassware. Moreover, they use different formats like beakers and conical flasks. Plus, they are all made to order through their Melbourne studio.

There are obvious minimalist and industrial trends in their work that inspire these small batch candles and the Alchemy team to live by the mantra “Less is More”. And, we love it! Less is More is definitely one of our mantras too!

The good news? When we were writing this post for the 1st time, they were still to launch the candles in New York City.

Now, you can find them in 3 different locations. Therefore, we all have a chance to get to know them better!

We want one of each, actually two of each! Hum, maybe three…?

Also, if you’re also not sure where to host your event, the Rooftop at The NoMad Hotel is a spectacular place and will certainly “awe” your guests.

And lastly, are starting to organize your NY private event and can’t seam to find time? Or, are you planning a corporate event and need assistance? Contact our experts and see how we can cater to your needs!
