Highway Restaurant Buys Indian Wells Tavern




The team behind Highway Restaurant & Bar in East Hampton has announced the acquisition of the Indian Wells Tavern on Main Street in Amagansett Village.

Highway Restaurant & Bar in East Hampton is under the TOMS Hospitality portfolio, which includes celebrated establishments in Manhattan such as Eleven Madison Park, Loring Place, Charlie Bird, and Shuko. Highway has been open in East Hampton for five years.

In a press release Highway Restaurant said it “is grateful for the support and encouragement they’ve received from Indian Wells Tavern owners, Kevin Boles and Chris Egger. They wish them and their entire Bostwick’s staff continued success. The two groups share a wonderful relationship out east and the timing of this development was right for both organizations.

“The Indian Wells Tavern will remain under the management of Mr. Boles and Mr. Eggert until March 2. Trading hours will be affected from that date as new ownership refresh the decor and performs maintenance work.”

The plan is to keep the location as a tavern style bar and restaurant, while the menu will “honor many local favorites and will be executed with fresh ingredients and the high standards of cuisine for which Highway is known. Patrons will still be able to watch their favorite teams on the bar televisions, have a pre-Talkhouse cocktail they have always loved, or enjoy a delicious and easy meal at the bar or in the dining room.”

Updates will include a broadened cocktail program and beverage offering whilst keeping draft beer options and a wide selection of affordable wines and spirits.

The relaunch date is not yet set, but plans are to open in early summer 2020.
