9 Pier Road, East Providence
Port? Starboard? Doesn’t matter at the East Providence Yacht Club. Drop anchor on either side of this amazing place that overlooks the majestic Providence River. Grab a spot on the outdoor patio or saunter back inside to a function room that had a fierce poker game going on when we popped in; but always be nice and heed the “No Foul Language” sign on display. 9 Pier Road, East Providence
Bonus kitsch: The captain statue watching over the proceedings. You might even catch him rocking out to live outdoor music in the summertime.
535 N Broadway, East Providence
Broadway Lounge? The Merrill? It doesn’t matter what you call the place, it’s all flawless. Classic wood paneling, stationary diner-style rotating stools around the bar, butterball shots. They have it all. Toss one back while overlooking the live music you might catch in their banquet style side room. 535 N Broadway, East Providence
Bonus kitsch: A table-style Pac-Man videogame, and a prize-loaded claw machine.
