Huntington New York - Find Out How I Spent The Day In This Great City

Huntington Nightlife

Huntington Village is a very popular town known for its nightlife. Starting on Thursday nights, you’ll find the restaurants starting to get crowded and the bar scene waking up and gearing up for the busy weekend. I’m not out and about as much as I used to be when I was younger but when I moved to Long Island in 2009, I did a lot of local networking and often the events were held at restaurants and pubs.

One of the busiest places in town

In my opinion is Honu Kitchen and Cocktails. It has a very chic atmosphere and an urban feel and a very thriving bar scene. Half of the restaurant turns into a dance floor on Friday and Saturday nights with a DJ and you’ll find a ton of locals and out-of-towners enjoying the scene, the food and the music. They also have great drink specials and get a lot of business from those who are visiting the Paramount across the street.


Now, I’ve never been to the Paramount which I can’t even believe because they have incredible shows, concerts and events, I just haven’t made it to any yet but I plan on it. They opened in 2011 and people have been raving about it since. They have an average of about 200 live events per year and have been mentioned in all the major entertainment blogs, publications and on television. They feature top artists, top comedians and even boxing events. They also have the Founder’s Room which essentially gives you VIP access with a yearly membership that isn’t cheap but well worth it if you want to party with the best. Here you get to mingle with the artists and have access to a ton of other perks like pre-sale tickets, priority seating, discounted food/drinks, etc.

If you are a concert goer and looking for a great night out

Then the Paramount is not to be missed. Another hot spot in Huntington is at Prime which is all the way up New York Avenue by the water. It’s a beautiful and highly rated American grill and steakhouse with a great bar scene and in the Summer night’s you will see people outside dressed to impress and watching the gorgeous sunset.

The food is great and the décor is chic and modern.

You can also dine or drink at the bar dockside, and can dock your boat right up against the restaurant and enjoy the scenery. If you are looking for a pub with less of a scene, there’s Meehan’s, Finnegan’s, IMC, The Shamrock, Finley’s, Huntington Village Tavern, Christopher’s, Nag’s Head Ale House. Of course all of these pubs have food too. If bars aren’t really your thing, you can make it a quiet night at the AMC Loews Shore 8 Movie Theatre. I’ve had plenty of nights where I’ve gone to a nice restaurant and as you know there are so many to choose from, then walked across the street to the Movie Theatre (parking is difficult) and escaped the crowds that way. Whatever you are looking for, Huntington Village has it.
