At least in the USA, the term "hammock hangout" (lowercase) appears in the
Hammockish sub-culture vernacular to be a place or event where single, but
far more prevalent, multiple hammocks can be installed on an ad hoc or
permanent basis.

The suspension technique isn't limited to just hooks, there are loops,
eyes, etc. - and the vertical supports are anything from natural trees to
building walls. The park equipment manufacturers use the rather bland
'stand' and the less common 'station'.

My preference would be the hammock_hangout, if you were to use some variant
of leisure=hammock_hook, it maybe should be hammock_hooks (plural), because
just a single hook available entails a less than optimum hammock
