Top Rated Nightlife in Providence

Search Radius (Miles)
Dusk

Dusk is a no nonsense type of bar and event venue that caters to indie rock and stiff drinks. Inside, it has that dark, Hollywood-type of dive feel, but the attention to detail goes beyond what you would find in a real 'dive.' For instance, a cocktail like the 'Dusk Manhattan' made with honey whiskey isn't created everywhere. Nonetheless, the club isn't that pretentious because you can still find old standbys like 'Gansett Lager in a can.

Justine's

This nondescript little gem inside Olneyville Square is probably one of the best kept secrets in Providence. There is no sign above or placards to show you the door, but if you look for the shop with lingerie in the window, then you've found it. When you enter behind the curtain the bar takes you back nearly a century. But even better than the nostalgic 'Roaring Twenties' setting is the drink selection, all of their cocktails are made with premium liquor and fresh ingredients. Try the 'French 75', it's made with simple syrup, lemon juice, cognac and champagne. It's undoubtedly one of the best classic cocktails in the entire city.

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.

E&O Tap

The neighborhood of Federal Hill has plenty of good places to sidle up to the bar without breaking the bank. The E&O happens to be just one bar, where arcade games are still a quarter and local 'Gansett' is always served cold. For entertainment, E&O has a couple of pinball machines, a few TVs, some fun theme nights and always an eclectic mix of music. It is a small place, so get there early if you want a spot at the bar, otherwise you'll be shoulder-to-shoulder by the end of the night.

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 Point Tavern

If you find yourself in the Fox Point neighborhood and are looking for a casual, fun, unpretentious place, The Point Tavern is just the spot. It is the quintessential neighborhood bar on Wickenden Street and it's actually located inside a residential house. The beer and wine list is small, but carefully curated and always filled with ever-changing selections. The kitchen also has a limited menu, but the pizza, sliders and quesadillas hit the spot with the right beer or wine.
