Braving the crowds and frigid temps to watch the ball drop in Times Square is overrated. If you’re more interested in five-course dining, beach party vibes and day-after pampering, you might consider marking the beginning of 2019 at The End.
Gurney’s Montauk Resort is pulling out all the stops with its NYE kick celebration. Start with a savory five-course dinner at Scarpetta Beach featuring special holiday dishes, local fare and a beautifully selected Italian wine list. Dishes include seared scallops, slow braised capretto and a selection of desserts.
Continue the festivities with the NYE Beach Club fête. The bash is complete with sand, sets from DJ Vikas Sapra, tacos and a champagne toast, plus a four-hour open bar.
Take the first day of 2019 to revel in some rest and relaxation. Gurney’s is offering a special package that includes two tickets to the NYE celebration, as well as complimentary access to fitness classes taught by top NYC instructors, champagne sabering classes, a mixology series and a New Year’s Day Polar Plunge in the Atlantic.
The deal starts around $599 for a Deluxe Ocean View room.
The Scarpetta dinner is not included in the stay package but is available separately. There will be two seatings: 5 to 7 p.m. for $105/person and 7 to 9 p.m. for $125/person.
