The Paramount is now a Top 10 hit.

The Huntington club came in at No. 10 among American clubs on the most recent Pollstar list of top clubs for the first nine months of 2014. The three-year-old club finished at No. 13 on the industry trade magazine’s worldwide rankings, selling more than 85,000 tickets in the first three quarters thanks to shows ranging from a rare club concert from Steely Dan to a surprise appearance from Ed Sheeran to a sold-out show with Bill Cosby.

In a statement, the club's directors thanked “all of Long Island for supporting our vision and helping us to achieve this success.”

Boston’s House of Blues finished first on the list, followed by the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., and Terminal 5 in Manhattan.
