Ladies night. A term used in many bars and nightclubs around this great country of ours. It evokes a promise of a great night. The Bedrock Bar and Grill and promoter Evan Stylez has delivered that promise. The Hofstra University based bar / nightclub was out of this world!!
Doors opened at 9. The place started to rock by 10 pm. Hundreds of Nassau County’s finest were in attendance, as club goers were celebrating all kinds of occasions: graduations, end of finals, and the overall joy of life. By 11, the line to enter extended down one of the residential side streets and stayed that way until almost the end of the night. The main floor was occupied by smooth talking guys and sexy females dancing to beats provided by DJ Brando and DJ Statik. This was the way a “summer kick off” party should be. In my opinion, summer is about BBQs, dirty beats and great memories. That promise of great nights turning into a great season. Bedrock along with Evan Stylez accomplished much of this in spades!
The interior of Bedrock was minimalistic and intimate. The rear deck was something reminiscent of the Hamptons. In addition to the main floor lounge, they have a spacious cellar dance floor cleverly called “Rock Bottom” with all the amenities that upstairs has with out the DJ booth. There is nothing to fret about though! All the great tunes upstairs are pumped through their massive sound system to the lower level. It is genuinely a fantastic space to spend a Friday night.
To the surprise of all in the venue, Stylez had an ace up his sleeve this night. Unbeknownst to some in attendance, he had booked a reality television star. As she darted through the intense crowd a spotlight shined down and there she was. The blast in a glass, Deena Cortese from MTV’s Jersey Shore standing in front of the DJ booth waving and encouraging everyone on the dance floor to get rowdy. Deena egged everyone on as her entourage started helping people do funnel shots. I had no idea how fun this celebrity run-ins could be!

A great night to kick off my favorite season. Awesome people, a packed club, reasonably priced drinks, and TV stars partying with you. What more can you ask for? Evan Stylez is a genius at creating an appealing nightlife vibe. Along with Bedrock, which is located at 668 Fulton St in Hempstead, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, he is responsible for Spa Fridays, located at 1916 Hempstead Turnpike and Stereo Saturdays located at 98 Meserole Ave in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. During the next few weeks, between the three locations, he has booked Electro-House / Progressive Dutch Canadian, DJ Bambi, Mob wives Drita and Big Ang and another former Jersey Shore star, JWOW, just to list a few.
