Life on Long Island
When looking to enter P’s & Q’s Auto Body in Huntington, keep in mind: it doesn’t have a front door.
Of course, it has an entrance -- yet instead of employing a typical doorway, P’s & Q’s has a doorman to guide guests beyond what at first seems to be the wall of an old auto repair garage, decorated with vintage oil cans, gas containers and a blackboard offering repair services for...Read more »
Looks like the people that make Montauk their regular good times destination will be getting another stop to frequent, as the recently-opened Harbor Raw Bar & Lounge is adding some dedicated nightlife to its calendar.
Located in the spot that formerly held the now-defunct Cross Eyed Clam, this small plates-focused restaurant opened in May and has already been offering some live music and...Read more »
It may have been only hours old, but somehow the Dark Horse Tavern in Farmingdale felt well-established during its Friday night debut.
Perhaps that sensation is partly due to the fact that this pub, a sibling of the original Dark Horse Tavern in Rockville Centre, has visibly been under construction for several months, during which -- unlike most businesses that hold off until the last stages...Read more »
If and when rating the nightlife scene currently found in Wantagh, it's likely most people would give high marks to the massive, 30-year-old Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall -- a well-attended hangout that features sizable shows and hosts high-profile events -- but the hamlet known as "The Gateway to Jones Beach" can also boast of several tinier bars that, while not as mighty as Mulcahy’s, are still...Read more »
As Memorial Day weekend 2014 came to a close and the summer season in the Hamptons got underway, two of the East End’s newest stops emerged as successful spots to catch a brilliant, cocktail-in-hand glimpse of the setting sun.
Naturally, Long Island’s many bays, harbors and other waterways allow for striking vantage points for one to witness le soleil slip below the horizon -- both in and...Read more »
Instead of having to haul into the city for some indoor indie this coming summer, fans of the outsider sound can instead head out to Montauk to hear some of the genre’s top performers play outside, backed by the waters of Fort Pond and the sun-bathed grounds of Surf Lodge.
It’s no secret that, for the most part, indie bands and other alternative acts don't gig much in either Nassau or Suffolk...Read more »
As the calendar days roll toward May, it may be time to start thinking about Cinco de Mayo.
For those among us planning to party on May 5 (or during the weekend leading to May 5, as this year the holiday lands on a Monday), proper preparations will almost certainly include a search for the perfect bash -- but if you feel that settling for simply one spot just won't cut your ‘Mayo mustard,...Read more »
If you were wondering when some new Hamptons spots would be arriving this year, it seems that Bay Kitchen Bar will definitely be one making an early entrance.
Over the past few days, one traveling on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton can see -- upon passing the corner of Gann Road -- a sign declaring: “Bay Kitchen Bar…Opening April 17.” (This is an uncommon development, as new seasonal...Read more »
Known for its overflowing DJ-driven super-bashes, the Neptune Beach Club famously closed its doors last year following the 2013 summer season after 24 years of providing a raucous and controversial place to party annually between Memorial Day and Labor Day while the sun was out.
On the other hand, the wild nights held at Neptune’s East Quogue address (70 Dune Rd.) appear to be continuing on...Read more »
It was a bit of a surprise for some when -- back in April -- McFadden’s RVC (210 Merrick Rd., Rockville Centre) announced it would be closing down, going out with a “farewell tour” of parties before shuttering in May. The tavern was easily one of LI’s busier spots at the time, often frequented by a large crowd of young men and women who patronized its themed bashes and appreciated its wild, dance-on-the-bar...Read more »
