The award-winning Southampton Inn invited hotel guests, local residents and seasonal visitors to kick off the Hamptons summer season at their 2023 Annual Barbeque.

Guests celebrated the holiday weekend al fresco at the pool patio surrounded by several acres of manicured lawns and private gardens, where they enjoyed a buffet of signature burgers, platters of traditional salads, fresh fruit, and tasty holiday classics prepared by Claude’s Restaurant including a celebratory 25th Anniversary Cake.

The pool patio bar kept all the participants hydrated with a wide selection of chilled refreshments to sip under the sun.
