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.

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.
