Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett has been sold and will close on Sunday, the owners, Chris Eggert and Kevin Boles, announced in a statement on Instagram on Tuesday. The buyer, TOMS Hospitality, which operates the Highway Restaurant and Bar in East Hampton, will begin renovating the space next week and will open a new restaurant there in early summer.
“After 12 incredible years, Saturday, February 29th, will be our final night of business,” said Mr. Eggert and Mr. Boles, who also own Bostwick’s Chowder House and Bostwick’s on the Harbor. “We wish the new owners the best and look forward to supporting them upon opening. We are incredibly thankful to all of our staff, customers, and friends who have supported us over the years.”
A representative of Highway Restaurant and Bar said in a statement that the new Amagansett restaurant would stay true to Indian Wells Tavern’s spirit. “It will stay a tavern-style bar and restaurant . . . 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.”
