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.

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.

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 Abbey

As far as the selection of craft beer goes, The Abbey manages to outdo every pub in town with its list of 92 different varieties. In addition to a massive selection of suds, the Abbey also has an amazing array of burgers, pizza and sandwiches alongside different entrees like meatloaf and pasta. Right below each menu item, there is a beer recommendation to pair your plate. A nice touch, just in case you are perplexed as what to choose when you see the beer list!

Nick-A-Nees

The local zine 'The Phoenix Providence' consistently rates this bar as one of the best dives in the city. In addition to the generously poured and reasonably priced drinks, there is always some type of event going on, from the house band on Mondays to Bluegrass Throwdowns on Thursday. And if nobody is on stage, then the jukebox provides a ready standby. There is never a cover charge and the bar only accepts cash in true dive bar fashion.

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.
