La Bella Havana transforms into a hookah lounge (with jukebox) on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 pm until 4 am. And its patio across the street is party-central throughout the summer: Fridays through Sundays from 5 to 11 pm, with drink specials, Cuban appetizers, $100 bottle service, and hookah in eight tobacco flavors. (Don’t see your favorite? There’s a request form for that!)
Copacabana Steakhouse has an outdoor patio with an actual patch of sand and a back terrace, where there’s a DJ every Friday from 10:30 pm to 4 am (no cover), drink specials, $20 beer buckets, $100 bottle service, and hypnotic hookahs. On summer Sundays that sand patch rocks with a beach party and bikini contest.
Don Coqui sizzles with salsa dancing on Picante Thursday nights at all locations. Friday and Saturday nights in New Rochelle and White Plains, dance to a live band or DJ, with the kitchen open until 2 am and bottle service available (bottles from $125 to $550, two-bottle minimum). New Rochelle keeps the action going all week with karaoke night on Tuesday and live jazz on Wednesday.
Dance to a DJ at Sofrito’s downstairs lounge on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 pm to 4 am, with hookah and bottle service available and the kitchen open until 1 am. Sundays from 11 am to 3:30 pm, you’re treated to live jazz at brunch.
