Come the summertime, going out on a Sunday night is nothing new. Most places that feature an outside area, patio or yard (think Long Beach, Freeport and Fire Island) offer gatherings that roll as the sun sets, with live acoustic acts or canned music playing while cocktails are leisurely sipped by guests looking to relax.
But, in places like Manhattan and Brooklyn, it’s not uncommon to find nightclubs that do full-fledged late-afternoon/ early evening parties on Sundays, where DJs spin energetic beats and give patrons a chance to dance during daylight hours. Furthermore, many of these events tend to take place indoors -- and are styled like a late-hour club bash. The result is that there are people cutting loose on a dance floor, only a wall away from the normal daytime bustle outside.
However, come Sunday, April 29 at 5 p.m., the need to head to NYC to achieve this purpose won’t be so necessary, as Black Lantern Sushi Den and Audio Lounge at 10 Wall St. in Huntington will be throwing its first “Soulset Sunday” event.
Details on what dance genres will be played have yet to be announced, but the DJs for the late-afternoon will be longtime NYC legend Hector Romero (known for eclectic mixes) and Island Park’s own Bobby D’Ambrosio. The cover charge is also still undetermined, but guests can partake in $25 mojito pitchers; call 631-275-1493 for more details or to make table reservations. (Dress to impress.)
