    Phase II…..I believe was on Queens Blvd. First time I was ever allowed to go to a club. My parents allowed me to go because Lisa Lisa was performing her song which had recently come out “I Wonder If I Take You Home”. I know it the club had several different names after that. But it was… Phase II… for a while. (it was 1985 and I was 18 although the drinking age had just been raised to 19 in NY for one year before being rasied to 21).

  22. While you folks remember clubs and bars from what I, as a sexagenarian, think of as the recent past, does anyone possess any photos of Cold Spring Harbor’s “Joe’s King Neptune” or “The Moorings?” As what was once a functioning shell fishing and motorboat service dock has been replaced by a sterile park named for someone completely unrelated to CSH except for naming an album after the place, it would be good to see photos of H & M Powles, Joe’s and The Moorings. Let’s see if “crowd sourcing” works as well as advertised??

      Community Gardens was great. I used to go there between 1966 and 1970. Met my wife there also. Gerry, a former boxer, was the owner, and I remember his brother Kevin was always “prowling” around. Two great guys. I remember the bouncers and bartenders as being real friendly. I went whenever I could, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays too. Along with The Younger Society (Original lead singer Gerry Milan then replaced by George ?, I also remember The Rubber Band and The Strangers as being local bands that played there regularly there. I used to shoot pool upstairs then go downstairs to The Gardens to dance the night away. When it got too crowded, I’d go up the block to Kelly’s. Although smaller, it was also a great place to hang out and listen to live music.

    Community Gardens, 215th st, Jamaica Ave, Queens Village NY was the dance bar in the 60’s that all the kids from Queens Village and beyond would go to on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.. As a former movie theater it was huge!. I remember seeing Frankie Limone and the Teenagers there in the early 60’s. In fact, I saw one of the kids punch out Frankie over an argument!
    What a great dance hall I met most of my dates there from 1962-66.One of my best friends (Steve the Fenda Benda) was on of the bouncers. Fights broke out a least once a week; but back then only fist fights. The most popular dance ten was the Slop.

    Most of the guys who went there had phoney draft cards. I don’t know hat the girls used to get in. Back then in NY, you could drink legally at 18.

    What a great place to meet girls!

  75. Hello everybody ~
    I stumbled upon this blog , while listening to and travelling back in my mental time machine lol ~!
    I reemeber the Highway Inn in Roosevelt , @ Elyse ! I sang there in 1970
    I also recall The Encore on 165th St next to Queens library .. An awesome club circa 73~78′ a friend barber was one of the owners and the barbershop was next door to the right of it . Does anyone remember the name of the Lounge on 162nd and Jamaica Ave
    The love of my life and I used to go there (,and many other places named here) small but quaint and laid back , had chess tables and so forth . great place on Fri nites after work ~! Wow you all are killin’ me with these memories. I just left a Gertz Dept Store blog , lol I used to work there and the Long Island Press in 72′ 73′ , awesome blog and great memories never to be replaced .. okay so who’s gonna’ be the first to power up the “TIME MACHINE” !!! I’m ready to go wayyy back .. lol
    Thank You All For The Memories

    Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone remembers a place in Island Park that was a rock club. It was called Industry Steel. I remember the last time I was there was in 1988. There seems to be no info on the net about this place. I even went to the area and don’t even recognize where the club once was, everything has changed dramatically over the years. I live in Brooklyn still. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Ty for the reply unamore6. I wasn’t even aware it was around any longer! I’m in Brooklyn and I seldom go to Island Park but I may make the journey just to jog the nostalgia for a few minutes and reminisce a bit. You have my eternal thanks! I’ll try to keep you posted on my findings. By the way are you in that neighborhood? You seem to know quite a bit!

    The lounge in Great Neck with Mike Cerrati playing the piano was called “The Golden Chariot”
    Does anyone remember “THE CHARIOT” in Forest Hills/Rego Park area on 64th Rd. near Queens Blvd. It was the greatest singles lounge ever! Bands such as Mike Ceratti , Con Astone , Gary Reynolds, etc. played there. 🎷 🎺 🎸 🎤 🎼 😃 😄 😅 ❤️

    OMG, Every Friday and Saturday night, thats where I would be. Anyone of those places. If the Travelers was slow, you went to the Suite. If ever you were depressed, Just go to the Stratton, you’d be sure to meet someone. LOL. Went to the Chariot in Forest Hills and I met someone had to be about 35 I thought that was just so old. LOL. I would have forgotton all about the Chariot. Thanks for the memory. What about Pan Am on Queens Blvd.

    Ellie, I don’t ever remember it being called the cloud room. Probably was though! That was the bar with the Huge Plane hanging above it? Yes, 1978, 79, 80. Best years ever.
