The Stephen Talkhouse is a Hamptons' institution. It is inarguably the most popular and famous bar on the East End. Since it opened in 1970 the place has been known for its' casual, laid-back, and unpretentious atmosphere. It is like the bar in Star Wars, populated by an eclectic clientele composed of locals, weekend warriors, and celebrities. Since 1987 it has also offered up an amazing array of national musical acts from every genre of music---whether it's blues or folk or country or soul. Over 50 musicians and bands that are in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame have played the Talkhouse. Prices range from $25 to $150 depending on the act, but patrons pay it in order to see their favorite acts in a room not much bigger than your living room. There are local bands playing reggae, rock or soul most nights after 10PM for a $10 cover on weekday or $30 on weekends.
