For many New Yorkers, heading to the Hamptons isn't just about the beach -- it's about the hopping nightlife. When the weather gets warm, it's the Hamptons, not Manhattan, that becomes the place to see and be seen after dark. The first step in planning your Hamptons party weekend is choosing where to sleep when the partying is done, and we've saved you time by selecting five hotels to suit different tastes -- and pairing each with a cool party spot of a similar style. Don't forget your designated driver.
