Remember when Montauk wasn't written about daily in The New York Times? Yeah, neither do we. There are people that do remember the days prior to the gentrification of the land, when big names such as The Surf Lodge and Ruschmeyer's hadn't even marked their grounds yet. Not to say we don't enjoy frequenting those spots, but sometimes it's nice to get down to the real grit of the land. And by that, we're talking dive bars, of which Montauk has many. So grab one of the cheapest beers you can find in a 30 mile radius, settle in at the bar and strike up a conversation with the scruffy fisherman seated next to you. Just don't let it slip that you found out about these 6 bars from a website!!
