The Emporium, 305 N. Service Rd., Dix Hills: Featuring three bars, a large sunken dance floor, two DJ booths, a beer garden, patio and bowling alley, this late-night bar, restaurant and concert hall could be very well considered a playground for adults (it?s open until at least 2 a.m. every day of the week).

The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

The word “bowl” has two meanings at  The Emporium in Patchogue, a new entertainment spot with bowling, music shows,  a club scene, an outdoor beer garden  —  and a full-service restaurant. Since the restaurant is situated in a pit at the venue's center, you can watch the strikes and spares on one side of you, the musicians onstage on the other. Nobody promises it will be a quiet meal.
