Harbor Club Packs Its Bags For Georgica

It's one and done for the Harbor Club in Bridgehampton, which just opened last weekend and promised to "bring the sexy back" the Hamptons. What they also did is open their new club without any kind of outdoor permit or cabaret license. Our Little Birdy says, "Harbor club in Bridgehampton finished after 1st weekend of summer. Door and bar was chaos, Fire Marshall closed doors in middle of the first Friday of memorial day weekend. Fines for no outdoor permit, not being allowed to have a DJ and dancing, noise complaints etc soon followed, and after being told no DJs were allowed, the people behind it all jumped ship." A quick check of their license shows they only have a standard OP permit, which certainly won't fly with the Suffolk county folks for an outdoor nightclub. We checked in with a club rep, who confirmed that their days at the former Ziggy's are indeed dunzo, telling DBTH that after the visit from the Fire Marshall, "we assessed capacity issues and came to the following decision. After last weekends opening, we have decided, starting this Friday, May 29th, The Harbor Club will be open at its new home in the newly remodeled Georgica Space ( the old saracen)". One week of existence has to be some kind of record for shortest amount of time for a club to be open in the Hamptons or anywhere else on earth. Hamptons 2009 - catch the fever!
