For those who like to mix their food and drink experiences with music, The Montauk Beach House, the groovy, new hotel and club in Montauk–where guests can sip Wölffer rosé or Stumptown coffee by the pool, a stone’s throw from the beach and the village’s happening restaurant scene–is holding its second “Poolside Frolic,” with a trio of DJs and performances by the Postelles and Chainsmoker. (More on The Montauk Beach House and the No. 50 cafe next week.)
