The vast majority of New Yorkers spend much of their summers vacationing in the Hamptons for its beaches, great shopping and exclusive social scene, but despite all of its offerings, Marcus Linial and Sam Lott recognize the need for a spacious location where vacationers and residents can let their hair down and explore their inner rock star. Canal Room Southampton will fill this void in Hamptons entertainment and nightlife, providing superior music acts and a meeting place for Hamptonites to celebrate, relax and enjoy the summer.

In addition to working in nightlife, Marcus Linial is also the founder of Marcus Linial Presents, his eponymous multi-service entertainment company that breeds fame and prosperity with the extension of its Fun Music Artists arm.
