Cheers To T’s Lounge
By Tricia Arend/
When you’re looking for a tasty
meal, a cold beer and a good time, sometimes the answer is
right around the corner. Nearly every community has its neighborhood
bar where the beer is cold and the people are warm. When there’s
food, it’s a plus.
East Northport just got a new one with the recent opening
of T’s Lounge, located at 246 Larkfield Road. A quaint
and cozy sports bar with a friendly atmosphere, T’s
new owners opened in April after revitalizing and renovating
“We’re new to the area and we are very friendly.
We like to meet everyone and let them know we’re here.
We want everyone to have a good time when they come in and
we make sure that happens,” said owner Jeannette Tamasi.
Upon walking in, one can easily tell from the sports paraphernalia
on the walls and sports games on the televisions that T’s
Lounge is a sports bar. But there’s much more. The kitchen
is open for orders until closing and the menu provides a wide
variety of choices from burgers and wings to steak and pasta.
Appetizers and finger foods will keep a light appetite happy,
while game day meal-seekers will find satisfaction in the
burgers and steaks. The best-selling burger is a plateful,
with fries, all the fixings plus slaw and a pickle spear.
The cheddar and bacon burger makes a hearty meal.
“People can come in for a quick beer and meal, we offer
that,” Tamasi said. “I would like to see the lunch
crowd come in. We would like to cater to the working community
And for those who like to party, T’s Lounge offers interactive
social events that draw people of all ages. Happy hour lasts
from 4 – 7 p.m. every Monday through Friday. Last month
they arranged a luau bash and on August 31 they will be throwing
a toga party. The Tamasis also organized a dart league on
Wednesday nights and are looking to form a bowling league.
T’s is a work in progress and the owners plan on creating
a new lounge area with a big screen television and a sofa
for the upcoming sports seasons. They’ll be offering
everything from specials on wings to pitchers of beer.
“I love making parties. I find a reason to celebrate
everything and anything!” Tamasi exclaimed.
The excitement is contagious and even the staff is happy to
“I love it here! It’s so much fun. It’s
a very friendly atmosphere. I love the parties,” said
Jessi Lanham, an enthusiastic employee.
“It’s refreshing and wonderful to see old and
new people getting together again,” added Allen Scalzo,
a pleased customer. “Change is good if it works and
I believe they’re doing the right thing.”
