Crimson hues edged in accents of neon orange and ice blue pervade the interior of Lava Lounge. Amid the low lights and bleeding colors, guests lounge on long benches and pull from long hookah hoses. Their exhalations send out swirls of smoke in flavors such as white peach, watermelon, or dominican mango. Between puffs, parties can sip bubbly Blue Moons and Stellas or make a night of it with bottle service. Bartenders also mix long island iced teas, cosmopolitans, and other cocktails behind a bar whose fuchsia lights transition into sky blue.

Tall grasses line the walls behind Lava Lounge's black couches, giving some of the smoking area a more pastoral feel. Patrons can also melt into one of Lava Lounge’s auto-massage chairs, pulling from a hookah while the chair kneads away muscle strains caused by relaxing too hard.

Fully licensed by the New York State Department of Education, Allstar Bartenders Training educates students in the art and science of mixed-drink pouring and presentation. Apprentice mixologists get acquainted with the functions of different bar tools while learning which cocktails should be shaken, stirred, or whisked using a handful of uncooked angel-hair pasta. Allstar's seasoned tenders aid students in memorizing the recipes, garnishes, and matching glassware of the most popular concoctions. The school's classrooms resemble mock cocktail lounges with ample shot glasses and jukeboxes, giving students a realistic setting to practice drink vending. Allstar treats its graduates to complimentary lifetime job-placement assistance and refresher courses.

For more than five years, the classes at HotYoga4You Rego Park have helped practitioners stretch out over the course of 90 minutes. But, in the fast-paced world of yoga instruction, tradition is secondary to innovation. Responding to the popular demands of their students, the center's instructors now offer a brand-new 60-minute version of their signature class. The hour-long classes include the same poses and breathing as their 90-minute counterparts. By shaving off the excess 30 minutes, instructors save their students some precious time, which they can then use for important business such as picking the kids up from soccer practice or building a scale replica of the soccer stadium out of old game programs.

Shape Up Ladies Fitness Center provides a curve-sculpting sanctuary for women of every age, body type, and fitness level.

The center offers free and fully supervised childcare from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday–Friday, enabling moms to perfect Zumba steps without their child's unnecessarily harsh critiques.

After falling in in love with not only yoga's physical benefits but also its total body and mind conditioning, co-founders Donna Janeira and Claudia Lanzetta helped establish Be Yoga. The studio's location overlooks Long Island Sound, reflecting the peacefulness of the rippling water with glowing burnished-wood floors. Students work at their own pace before sleek mirrors to further their yoga or fitness training. Students can also choose to pursue the studio's ample non-yoga classes, which include barre workouts wherein students learn to perform muscle-lengthening stretches while supporting themselves with a ballet barre.

No matter what the calendar reads, it?s always October in spirit at Manor Oktoberfest, a German-style eatery that channels Munich?s lively fest of the same name. Owner Mark Gallagher serves Bavarian fare that ranges from traditional appetizers?including smoked black forest bacon and pierogies?to hearty entrees such as a variety of wursts and Hungarian schnitzel. It wouldn?t be Oktoberfest without a lot of beer, and the restaurant carries more than 30 varieties. Draught beers, including Hofbrau Original and Franziskaner Weissbier, come in half-liter or one-liter mugs, or in a two-liter boot if you?ve also lost one shoe.
