You don’t have to make a trip into Manhattan for a great night out. The nightlife is alive and well right here on Long Island. So grab your friends, order up some drinks, and dance the night away at one of these four local dance clubs.
7 Montauk Highway, Blue Point
If a college nightclub full of rowdy 20-somethings isn’t your scene, you’ll love the posh atmosphere at Blue, where a majority of its patrons are in their 30s and 40s. Dance along to today’s top hits, sip cocktails, and socialize every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night when the chic restaurant transitions into a lively dance club. Ladies, be sure not to miss an exclusive open bar every Saturday evening from 9 to 10 p.m.
Aura Light & Sound Suite
1900 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow
Aura offers a nightclub experience unlike any other. With LED-illuminated tables and bars, a blue-lit dance floor, and a ceiling made up entirely of a flexible LED video display screen, this dance club has won a number of awards and drawn in club goers from across the island for its uniquely designed interior. Patrons are also drawn to the club’s bumping techno music, high quality sound, and spaciousness, with the establishment boasting two floors and a bar on each level.
9 Railroad Avenue, Patchogue
This large venue, with a spacious sunken dance floor, bowling alley, restaurant, three bars, and two DJ booths offers entertainment seven nights a week. Visit the Emporium on a Saturday evening for one of the biggest dance parties on Long Island, where a blend of house, hip hop, and rock music makes for one awesome night of dancing.
30 New Street, Huntington
Also known as the Artful Dodger, Radio is Huntington’s hot spot for the under-30 crowd, with DJs spinning dub step, pop, house, trance, and electronic music into the wee hours of the night. Dance your heart out and enjoy a drink in the lounge or get some fresh air on the outdoor patio. Before you head here, you’ll want to reserve a table for you and your friends so you’re guaranteed a place to rest your feet and hang out. Also, be sure to bring cash as credit cards are not accepted here.
