Dreaming of the warm hot sun today?

Maybe this will help:

Nicky’s on the Bay, that glowing beacon of hope that summertime is around the corner, has swung open its doors at the Bay Shore Marina for 2019.

Owner Nick Parini was at the site on Wednesday, prepping for today’s opening, April 4.

“Now I’ll be here seven days as week,” he told GreaterBayShore.

The bayfront bar and restaurant offers rooftop dining and dancing on the Great South Bay. It’s  entering its 15th season in Bay Shore — and its fifth season after a huge expansion.

There’s also the rooftop snack bar (pictured above), and live music every ThursdayFriday and Saturday, weather permitting, starting Memorial Day weekend.

Nicky’s on the Bay opens at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and stays open through dinner every day of the week through Labor Day.

“People can expect the same great food and drinks with the best view anywhere,” Parini says each year.

Nicky’s regular hours typically wind down around Thanksgiving but stays open through the holidays for private parties.

Nicky’s is located at 150 S Clinton Ave in Bay Shore. Sister restaurant Nicky’s Clam Bar is already open at the Fire Island Ferries terminal on the east side of Maple Avenue.
