Located in the heart of Huntington Village, this extraordinary venue has not only been recognized as one of Long Island’s premier concert and performance halls, but also one of the best in the nation—showcasing the best entertainment in the world. Ever since The Paramount’s opening in September 2011, it has offered an unpredictable range of live events, concerts, comedy, boxing and other special occasions, such as weddings, Sweet 16s and charity fundraisers. Booked by Live Nation with Ticketmaster ticketing, The Paramount’s musical styles vary from night to night. Artists from B.B. King to ZZ Top, Weezer and John Fogerty have all graced its stage—megastars Ed Sheeran and “Piano Man” Billy Joel even performing sold-out surprise gigs. The Paramount’s main hall has the versatility to set up either standing or seated concerts in its upper level 1,555-capacity club, and features a large dance floor with fixed side-loge balcony and mezzanine seating. Its lower level has a 450-capacity V.I.P. Founder’s Room, styled as a 1920’s-themed speakeasy. The Paramount also serves snack foods, such as sliders, jumbo hot pretzels, and Buffalo chicken wings, and features full-service bars to quench patrons’ thirsts. There’s even a smoking section.
