Music Joints August 2011

Feeling fancy? Mirelle’s is. Mirelle’s is a suave, sophisticated dining hall with live music every Friday and a singer/songwriter’s night on the second Monday of every month.

(516) 783-7500, Wantagh

Long Island’s biggest small venue. Or smallest big venue. A classic bar/music hall combination that hosts both local and national acts. Check it out if you like crowds, dancing, wings and drink specials.


(631) 539-9196, Babylon

Your friendly neighborhood bar with a healthy dose of original music. Owners Dave and Magge Drew are musicians themselves, and they’ve made it a place musicians love to play and audiences love to listen. Open Mic Mondays and local bands on the weekends, with the mixed set of characters you find only in Babylon Village.

(631) 447-7744, Patchogue

Legit barbecue meets legit blues. It’s a beautiful thing. Expect local favorites like Kerry Kearney and Sweet Suzi, awesome brews on tap and a deliciously messy meal.
