Top Rated Nightlife in Providence

Search Radius (Miles)
The Eddy

In the Downcity area of Providence, there are plenty of bars to choose from, like the Dorrance, Congress Tavern and Union, however the spot for carefully crafted cocktails is The Eddy. Here, the focus behind the bar is on the cocktail, sure they have beer, but you would be remiss not to try the 'Dutch 75.' The drink is a nice take on the French version, only this one is made with Bols Gin, a homemade lemon cordial and Prosecco instead of Champagne. The beer and wine lists are equally creative and the bar snacks are even better than elsewhere, with options like pickles, crostini, small sandwiches and deviled eggs, it's no wonder the place is always packed.

Book A Table
Scurvy Dog

The Scurvy Dog is proud to serve strong drinks, loud music and eclectic eats in a relatively trend-free atmosphere. The Dog is located in historic Olneyville just west of downtown and though most are here for the potent beer and cocktails, the kitchen shouldn't be forgotten because it serves hot dogs and burgers with bizarre, tasty toppings. For instance, the 'Wiggety Waaah' comes with Nutella, bacon and Swiss cheese and the 'Red Light District' is made with raspberry jam and Swiss. When the weather allows, the back patio is a nice place to chill and take one of these fun-to-eat treats.

The Dorrance

The Dorrance has garnered a reputation over the years as one of the best restaurants in Providence, or all of Rhode Island for that matter. The ambiance exudes elegance just like the menu, with dishes that contain exotic ingredients like Burrata, Blue Mussels in saffron and a selection of Rillettes on their Charcuterie plate. The food menu changes according to season, however the cocktails stay fairly static, that is because they have perfected them. A couple of the highlights include the Creole Lemonade made with Damask Gin or the potent Kentucky Fire made with both Heaven Hill 8 year Bourbon and Laphroaig scottish whiskey!

Colosseum

This club is primarily for the younger crowd because the age restriction is only 18 years-old and up, however there are plenty of different age groups interspersed throughout. DJs usually ply electronic beats and the nights are similar to raves in the typical sense, with people gyrating among the smoke machines. A number of live music events and concerts are also hosted here from time to time. It's definitely a place to dance the night away, at least until 2:30am.

Tantric Nightclub

This club located in the neighborhood called Hope just north of College Hill is where clubbing is taken to a more elegant level. Tantric is a sleek, modern spot with Asian inspired elemental decor, with soft bamboo colored tones and a statue of Shiva behind the bar. It seems more boutique bar rather than nightclub because of the martinis served, but its massive dance floor still gives it credibility as a club. If you're in the Hope or Mt. Hope neighborhoods, it definitely merits a visit.

The White Horse Tavern

A historical New England dining haven since 1673, a visit to The White Horse Tavern is a Newport cultural experience. During its establishment in the 17th Century, this tavern was used as a meeting space by aristocrats in Rhode Island. Times may have changed over the centuries, but the historic charm still remains. Satisfy your palette with local flavor; enjoy farm-to-table American cuisine, from tavern burgers to seafood preparations, while seated under beamed ceilings in front of the crackling fireplace. The Tavern is a local landmark and is open year-round.
