While Dan and Charlene DeSmet have opened The Springs Tavern at 15 Fort Pond Boulevard in East Hampton, the location formerly known as Wolfie’s Tavern. The historic site has served the local community as a tavern, restaurant, bar, live music venue and gathering spot for over 80 years. Frequented by famed abstract artists Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning in the ’40s, the décor is intended to pay homage to the history of the neighborhood and famed guests; while eight state-of-the-art HD and 4K televisions will feature NFL Sunday Ticket, every MLB game and Premiere League Soccer games with a multi-zone 8-speaker sound system. The Springs Tavern features American pub-style fare executed by Chef Michael Ruggiero. Ruggiero brings his culinary experience from Hamptons hot spots including Nick & Toni’s, Harvest on Fort Pond, Fresno and Montauk Lake Club.
