Life on Long Island
When it comes to Long Island’s nightlife, there’s no question that a part of the party scene belongs to a fairly mature set of fun-seekers
People that don't regularly head out in the evening for good times, dancing and social situations on LI may be under the impression that area pubs and clubs are solely full of twenty-somethings -- but in fact, there are a number of spots that count on the...Read more »
Super Bowl Sunday: It’s a safe bet that most Long Islanders know it’s the event for football fans, and for those who take the day seriously, the necessary preparations tend to follow a similar path – either get to a spot that will be running the game (it starts at 6:30 p.m.) and serving food and drink, or have a personal party at home (and make sure it’s also properly loaded with eats and beverages).

When it comes to electronic dance music (EDM), sometimes the big hits aren't always a draw for all of its enthusiasts.
For fans of conventional electronic dance (pop music remixes, contemporary house; think current Grammy winners Daft Punk), most clubs on Long Island offer nights featuring DJs that spin the sort of tracks heard on radio mixshows and other popular music outlets -- but there...Read more »
It doesn't take much exploring to experience how important craft beer has become to Long Island nightlife.
Venture into most of LI’s newer pubs, and chances are the brew menu will feature more than just the Buds, Coors and other mainstream suds that once dominated the cooler space that holds a venue’s frosty libations in check, as craft beer (a beer produced by a brewer whose annual production...Read more »
Looks like the North Shore is going to get a rare blast of electronic dance come mid-February.
There have always been clubs and lounges both along Jericho Turnpike and in the busy villages north of NY-25 (Port Washington, Huntington, Bayville, Port Jefferson, Greenport) that offer DJ parties and dance floor-filled gatherings -- but when it comes to the major clubs, arenas and venues that specialize...Read more »
When it comes to partying in the Hamptons, one of the major ways the South Fork scene tends to celebrate is through a summer series of gala benefits. During the warmer weather it’s not hard to find hundreds of Hamptonites attending these events, donating sizable amounts of money toward each of the causes given a night of spotlight attention.
However, come the winter, the fabulous fundraiser...Read more »
Usually, when a spot is referred to as sketchy, it’s a reference to expectations of there being a possibly problematic scene -- but at Kreators Bar in Mount Sinai, management hopes all their clientele come in and get “sketchy,” so to speak.
There are few bars (if any) on LI that are as art-minded as Kreators -- as the work of local artists is available daily to view and purchase off the walls,...Read more »
For the millions who invest passion and energy in following the doings of the National Football League, the arrival of the Super Bowl is a special time. Now that the 2014 conference playoffs have been settled, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will take the field on Sunday, Feb. 2 to decide which team will hold the Vince Lombardi Trophy (a day widely known as “Super Bowl Sunday”).

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.

It might not be as trendy as it was before Y2K, but modern swing is still a big thing for some people.
Inspired by the Big Band orchestra sound that served as major dance music for guys and gals during the 1930s and 1940s, swing music made a comeback during the 1990s — as artists such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Massapequa-born Brian Setzer put out modern tunes inspired...Read more »
