Life on Long Island
South Pointe closing its doors
That social media proclamation -- which is also linked to an online article that provides elaboration on the venue’s closing -- is also tagged with a photo of pop singer Justin Bieber. South Pointe had recently gained national attention due to an alleged altercation between Bieber, his security entourage and a Hampton Bays resident outside the club early in the morning on Aug. 4.
The closing of South Pointe (it opened in 2011) marks the departure of yet another summer-season resident from the host building at 125 Tuckahoe Rd. The venue space is well-known as a spot that sees frequent changes; during the past 10 years it has been home to a number of short-lived, warm-weather extensions of year-round nightclubs based in Manhattan. (Former tenants include Tavern, Stereo By The Shore, LaPlaya and RDV East.)
No word as of yet if there will be a new business using the location during the summer of 2014.
