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.

Veterans Memorial Auditorium

Veterans Memorial Auditorium or better known as the VMA Arts & Cultural Center is a venerable downtown venue. Construction began in 1928, but it wasn't finished until 1950 due to the Great Depression. Today, the 1900-seat theater is known for its fantastic acoustics, its stage and of course the beautifully decorated interiors. The National Register of Historic Places put it on the registry in 1993 and the adjoining Masonic Temple (now a Renaissance Hotel) is an equally poignant building.

Columbus Theater

Providence has plenty to boast about, from big-city nightclubs and old-school party halls to retro cinemas and unique event venues. The Columbus Theater fits right into this list. Its large main auditorium holds 800 comfortably. It has 650 orchestra seats and 150 seats on the mezzanine level, respectively. Every seat has a great view of the stage so you won't miss a single detail and the acoustics are quite impressive. The second venue called the Cinematheque is more intimate with 200 seats.

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.
