The Bar

The Bar alongside our simply sumptuous dining restaurant is the perfect spot to relax in the timeless elegance of this historic Newport mansion and savor our superb selection of wines, spirits and cocktails, whether that be before or after dinner. Contributing to our status as an awarded hotel restaurant in Rhode Island, the Bar gives us the opportunity to revive the Gilded Age in a single cocktail or round off the casually elegant dining experience with some Jazz Age music and entertainment.

The Bar is open daily from 4pm.
