The local zine 'The Phoenix Providence' consistently rates this bar as one of the best dives in the city. In addition to the generously poured and reasonably priced drinks, there is always some type of event going on, from the house band on Mondays to Bluegrass Throwdowns on Thursday. And if nobody is on stage, then the jukebox provides a ready standby. There is never a cover charge and the bar only accepts cash in true dive bar fashion.
This club started out as a modest, funky beer and wine bar frequented by artists, musicians and academics. The owners soon added rooms, a deck and a small grill, and the Hot Club established itself as one of Providence's most popular places. On balmy summer nights, the deck is especially popular, and offers delightful views of the Providence River. The versatile menu is decked with an extensive selection of tasteful drinks which patrons can pair with delectable bites such as Chicken Wings, Fish Nuggets, Clam Strips, and Chicken Tacos among others.
