There are numerous great places for singles to meet other singles, so the only reason you should be single is because you want to keep it that way. But if you’re ready to meet someone, which is the best singles spot on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted The Refuge the Best Singles Spot on Long Island in the 2021 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

Long Island singles looking for a good time and magnificent food and drink options can take refuge at The Refuge in Melville. It offers a modern twist on Italian and Latin cuisine with a nod to the classics such as mussels and veal chops.

Nothing alleviates first date jitters and meet-cutes from across the restaurant quite like a sharable meat and cheese board filled with cured meats and artisanal cheeses while sipping on a “sucker punch” cocktail or a sangria.

The Refuge is appropriately named for its reputation for providing a comfortable and engaging environment where you can eat something good and simultaneously sip something sinful whether you’re looking for a quick lunch, relaxing dinner or indulging in brunch!

The Refuge is located at 515 Broadhollow Rd. in Melville. It can be reached at 631-577-4444 or refuge110.com
