    Good Bars/Restaurants in Providence, RI


    Hi all! I'm heading to Providence tomorrow night but I've never been there. 2 couples looking for a great bar/restaurant. We're only going Fright evening and returning early Saturday. Where would you go?

    TIA!

    LOTS of good food in Providence. Do you have a hotel booked? If not, recommend the Hampton Inn downtown. It's an an old clearing house building and is far nicer than any Hampton Inn has any right being.

    These are in the downtown area, walking distance to the Providence River waterfront area. Lots of restaurants and bars here, great spot to walk around:
    Cav has fantastic food and a really cool atmosphere. Great place for a double date.
    Gracie's is very good for prix fixe and a good date spot. Don't eat too much because there will be sects later.
    Hemenway's does very good seafood and has strong Huey Lewis vibes.
    Pot au Feu is an awesome little French Bistro in a basement. Great food.

    The East Side is really nice as well. It's a bit more spread out than downtown but there's great food here:
    Waterman Grill is right on the Seekonk river in a cool old building. They have a sweet wood fire grill and great views.
    Red Stripe is more casual, they're famous for Mussels and Fries. Very hipster.
    Mare Rooftop is very good.

    Sorry, should have said.....I rented a houseboat for the evening...It doesn't have the address but says:

    This houseboat is located in downtown Providence. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. In fact, popular Providence hang outs are in front of the marina including Lola’s Mexican Bar & Cantina, The Whiskey Republic and Providence’s famous Hot Club. Other great restaurants including several pubs, an Indian Restaurant, a Sushi restaurant and the trendy Jewelry District are just around the corner. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, laundromats, and a convenience store on the corner. Adjacent to our marina is a water taxi service that provides pick-ups and drop-offs to many local hot spots along the Providence Canal.

    Mills Tavern on North Main St is my favorite in Providence.
    Camille’s on Bradford st is an excellent option as well.
    Both places will run you $100-$150 per head if you have a couple drinks

    That's a great spot, put in Providence Marina on google maps. You will be walking distance, or very short uber, to most of the c ity.
