Life on Long Island
When it comes to locales where gamblers come to scrap, one might think of Las Vegas, Atlantic City or Monte Carlo…but Southampton, N.Y.? In this case, it’s probably not a spot that immediately comes to mind – yet for the fourth year in a row, one venue in the Hamptons hamlet is counting on those who consider themselves skilled in the art of card playing to come together for a tournament that looks...Read more »
There are times when a spot lands on the nightlife scene and claims to be an “underground” kind of place, one that shuns the mainstream. Brix and Rye, new in Greenport, does just that -- but in this case it is truly an underground venue, as it is actually located under the ground.
The club opened Thursday, July 31, with a steady crowd of casual-but-neatly dressed people (aged 25-50) arriving...Read more »
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 »
Although it only first opened its doors last Thursday, The Arden in Port Jefferson is already making a serious nightlife splash.
A new bar, club and restaurant, it’s located in the second-story space previously belonging to the now-defunct Port Jazz — and its owners have done more than just take over the location, as heavy renovations have been made inside and out.
The Port Jazz scheme...Read more »
While it's true that much of Long Island's late-night summer-season fun is to be found on or near the coastline, it turns out one of LI's most successful and long-lived get-togethers is completely landlocked within eastern Nassau County.
Back for a 15th year – an impressive age for any recurring event to reach when you consider the capricious nature of nightlife -- Carlyle on the Green’s warm...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 »
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 »
As of the first weekend in April, Parlay Gastropub in Rockville Centre officially opened for business.
Its actual arrival had been a point of nightlife discussion for most of the past year, starting when the tavern that was previously located at Parlay’s current address – McFadden’s RVC – announced it would be shuttering in May of 2013. Regularly drawing a young, raucous lot that interfaced...Read more »
Such amenities as a DJ, cocktails and food usually work well as enticements when it comes to possibly attracting people to patronize a party, but anyone who attends the 12th annual Pet Peeves celebration set for Thursday, March 27 at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury will also enjoy the added bonus of being a benefactor.
As it has for the past dozen years, Woodbury-based nonprofit...Read more »
Hicksville is not exactly a bar-stacked town. In fact, there are only a couple of dedicated late-night stops, and one of them was No Limits -- which is now no more.
After almost two decades in existence, the simple, mostly-locals bar closed its doors in 2013. However, a new tenant has moved into the No Limits former digs, one armed with both a fresh game plan and a brand new look.
As...Read more »
