The Drift Inn Will Be Back This Summer at a New Home

The Drift Inn, a popular Saturday night destination for summer revelers in East Quogue, will be returning to the Hamptons in 2014 despite losing its home for the second time.

Back in 2002, the original Drift Inn on Dune Road was destroyed in a February fire while it was closed for the season. But The Drift found new life, taking over Saturday nights at Neptune Beach Club, another Dune Road venue. Then last year Southampton Town entered into an agreement to purchase Neptune with plans to make it a public facility. The Drift was homeless once again.

On Wednesday, The Drift Inn announced via Facebook that it is coming back in a new location, The Beach Bar in Hampton Bays on Foster Avenue.

“We promised the Saturday night party we have had for 19 years would continue and it will,” the Facebook status reads. “Memorial Day Saturday we will be ready to go. Same Drift staff, our bartenders, our bouncers, our barbacks and always friendly front door crew. And most importantly our Drift Inn music which has been one of our signatures.”
