Longislanders rang in the new year like it's 1929! The era of The Great Gatsby where flappers and bootleggers mixed and mingled, hiding from prohibition officers as they tried to shut the juice joint down. The Landing at Jones Beach hosted New Years Eve in the most glamorous speakeasy of them all - the newly renovated Marine Dining Hall at Jones Beach West Bathhouse, now named The Landing at Jones Beach.


Their historic dining room has been beautifully restored to it's original glory, full of art deco details and grand ambiance. Guests enjoyed an elegant three course dinner evoking the style and glamour of the era, sipping champagne and Mary Pickford cocktails - an open bar that featured authentic prohibition era cocktails, that really got everyone's wiggle on. Eden Lane Jazz entertained in true 20's fashion, with jazz, trumpets and snaredrums that brough the hoofer out of everyone. Their fabulous songstress, Stephanie, magically took you back to this ritzy age, with her sultry voice & smarty style.


Eden Lane is a jazz band with an affinity for film noir and classic romance. Anchored by redheaded songbird, Stephanie Layton, they perform jazz standards from The Great American Songbook and/or the Prohibition Era, crafting their sets to combine fresh takes on famous tunes with rare gems from deep in the vintage vault. Recent appearances include Charlotte Tilbury Beauty's "Hollywood Collection" launch event, The American Federation of Arts Fall Gala, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's farewell banquet, and corporate events for S'well Bottle, ARRI Rental, and Vinson & Elkins. They are also proud to maintain a five-star rating on GigSalad, Gigmasters, and Wedding Wire.


Eden Lane can play as two - six pieces. Please visit their contact page if you have questions or would like to book now for your next special occasion.

This Long Island art deco historic venue was spooktacularly dressed for the occasion - skulls, black roses, and creepy things illuminated by candlelight took guests to an era gone by, where spirits and starlets from the past came to see and be seen. Guest, goblins and gouls enjoyed an immersive & interactive experince that terrified and delighted. DJ Keith Andrews spun in the main dining room with a mix of Top 40, house, raggae, Latin & more. The living dead enjoyed an open barfeaturing signature Halloween cocktails to quench their blood curdingly thirst and the zombies were refueled with a buffetdinner that included the chef's special offerings.


Sue Fragale and her friend took home first prize for best costume as a wooded flowery forest all lit up in lights!

The Landing at Jones Beach has been pristinely restored to the days of its former glory, the West Bathhouse at Jones Beach is once again available for dining and entertaining. Thanks to an extensive restoration investment from the New York State parks, the public can once again drink in the magnificent, uninterrupted ocean views while enjoying a fine dining experience.


The interior captures the charm of the 1920s and 30s with Art Deco accents, gorgeously restored original millwork, and the finest finishes fit for a scene from Gatsby all the while equipped with all the modern updates and conveniences including a state of the art kitchen, brand new facilities, and most importantly a brand new HVAC, to make every guest feel right at home.


Originally opened in 1929, Jones Beach is a capstone achievement to the acclaimed park leader and urban designer Robert Moses. The project was intended to allow visitors pristine parkland with all of the best luxuries of the time: fine dining, swimming pools, and an extensive boardwalk. To this day, it is one of the metropolitan area’s finest beaches and is host to concerts, events, and countless memories.


The West Bathhouse was originally designed for bathers to use as changing rooms as well as provide a location for the Marine Dining Hall, a bar and restaurant for those who wanted a more upscale day at the beach. Moses himself handpicked the most expensive materials for its exterior – Ohio sandstone and Barbizon brick – as the facade for both East and West Bathhouses. They became iconic structures and functional facilities for beachgoers. The West Bathhouse also encompasses a massive stone terrace overlooking one of Jones Beach’s iconic swimming pools.

Unfortunately, after closing, the structure became underused and fell into some disrepair until Gov. Cuomo’s extensive restoration plan, which has dedicated over $60 million in revitalizing Jones Beach over the next few years. The Landing is the first operator to take over in two generations, and we are proud to offer the highest quality local fare in such a magnificent space.


Host your most memorable events at an unforgettable, and unmatchable location. With exclusive access to the breathtaking beach front of Long Island’s South Shore, the Landing at Jones Beach makes a historic beach getaway wedding an absolute reality in your backyard.
