A place where everybody knows your name. A place where you can dance past midnight. A place to cheer on your favorite team or grab some grub. No matter what you want in a nightspot, LI's got it.

Going out at night means different things to different people: Some want a clever cocktail, while others just want a beer. There are those who want to catch a major sporting event, while others are looking to hear the hottest DJs. Whatever late-evening fun you seek, we've compiled a list of the top 10 nightspots in Nassau County, and we're quite certain you can find something here to fit your whim.
