Nur Khan — the nightlife fixture behind Rose Bar and Electric Room — has declared the Catskills “the new Montauk.” “I think the Catskills are the place to be,” the club vet [told us] . . . Montauk’s “run its course . . . the Catskills are what Montauk was when Andy Warhol and Peter Beard and the Stones [were there] in like ’71, ’72.”
The Graham & Co. hotel in Phoenicia started this "vacation spot rumble" in 2013, and commemorated the new Catskills v. Hamptons rivalry with T-shirts. Two years later, it looks like we have a winner.
Ironically, as Khan was declaring the Catskills the new Montauk, he was in Montauk, the New York Post reports.
