So thrilled to stumble upon this place in Providence. Food is local, portions ate big, service was quick. Love the many layered stuff that they are doing with arts are youth needing employment options too. Hopes to get back to Providence just to visit again.

But sometimes their food is too salty- I had a couple of coworkers throw out their... More

AS220 really has it all--multiple gallery spaces, a performance space that has multiple events almost every night of the week, a great restaurant and bar, community classes, workshops for students, an open darkroom and print studio, artist living spaces, and so much more. It should be at the top of the "things to do in Providence" list because of the... More
