Providence Performing Arts Center

The Providence Performing Arts Center is the second largest theater in New England. It seats 3200 people and it originally opened as a Loew's movie theater in 1928. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places after its 1977 renovation. In this baroquely elegant space, the stage is set for Broadway musicals and concerts. Events as diverse as a Jackson Browne concert or The Sound of Music can be found on this venerable establishment's schedule. Located downtown on Weybosset Street, PPAC (pronounced Pea-Pac, as it is known locally) is close to many downtown hotels as well as other attractions.

The Parlour

Karaoke, open-mic, and live music: what more could you ask for in a bar? Those events thankfully are not on the same night, but it doesn't really matter, because every night is a fun one at the Parlour. Alongside music that features all types of acts, visitors will find plenty of craft beers as well as domestic ones. Options like Guinness and Bass are here and they even have Yeungling Lager (from the oldest operating brewery in the U.S.) on tap. On the menu, sandwiches, entrees and pizza options all have names that praise Northeastern locals like Robert Parrish from the Celtics, baseball player Lou Merloni and former mayor Buddy Cianci.

Additionally, Fête has over 14,000 square feet of space and it rents this space for special events.

The Met

The Met is synonymous with Providence nightlife, where practically every night of the week you can hear the sounds of hip-hop DJs, rock bands, rappers, indie girl bands, the list goes on-and-on. The club first started out as the venerable Met Café, then it outgrew its space and moved over to the Peerless Building on Union Street. Since then, the calendar has held a veritable who's who list of popular acts, some of which have included The Black Eyed Peas, Dave Matthews Band and many others.
