Now the theater is gone and it's a Family Dollar store and the club is now a small strip mall. I know back in the day it was a hoping bar/club with rock bands playing there on the weekends.


If anyone knows, please post. I have been going crazy trying to remember!!

Thanks!!
Was it Jax or Jillians?

Wow. I can't believe someone else remembers Solomon Grundy's. I agree that Speaks was a lot of fun. Used to go there all the time. Now, when I drive down Long Beach Road I can't picture where it was. Does anybody know what's there now?

There was a Salty Dog on Hempstead Turnpike near Hofstra. The Jets used to drink there.

Tom, you wont find it on Long Beach road, 'cause it was off Austin blvd. one block over. Actually the parking lot was on Austin and Speaks was on the water on Broadway. I think the cross street was Georgia. Drove by it while visiting this summer...and was surprised to see Speaks was razed(GONE) Flattened → and the parking lot was now a huge storage facility.!
sad- some good times down there---
