Although you could miss East Quogue in the blink of an eye, this small coastal community attracts a lively nighttime crowd, and its more affordable real estate fuels an active year-round community.
Sleepy hamlet by day and vibrant Main Street by night
East Quogue residents love this hamlet west of the canal for its laid-back summer vibes and shorter commute times to the city. Here, there is far less of the glamorous Hamptons scene; you’re more likely to catch weekenders enjoying a casual barbecue than attending an exclusive benefit dinner. With a bustling Main Street, locally owned shops, and a beach accessible by foot, East Quogue is perfect for weekenders seeking a low traffic, hassle-free lifestyle. Despite the no-frills ambiance, the water views are nothing short of stunning. And while the town does have that sleepy, fishing-village feel, at night, waterside hotspots like Dockers make it a destination for the party crowd.
Modern houses and ranch homes close to the beach
Not to be confused with Quogue Village, real estate in East Quogue tends to be more affordable than the ritzier village to its west. Although it’s not without its multimillion-dollar postmodern oceanfront estates, single-family ranches here start at around $400,000, with typical homes ranging from $600,000 to $1.2 million.
Every seat in this upscale waterfront restaurant overlooks the bay. With three bars, a large deck and live entertainment, this is a go-to late-night hotspot.
