Too Hot for me?!

For me it was a quick pit stop; of course, one should not judge a place on first impressions, but forgive me- I will. The Hot Club seems to attract a younger set of "beautiful people." I was not one of them; nevertheless, I had an opportunity to have a beer at the bar and fill up my senses with... read more

I have been to Hot Club several times over the last 2 years or so. The location is excellent being right on the Providence River with both indoor and outdoor bar area options. The view of the city is optimal at this location. The crowd is mixed, from young to old and all walks of life. I find that the... More

If you're looking for a dive bar you don't have to look any further. If you want anything but bar food get your drink on here and plan to head out for food. I had a burger that was ok but nothing special. They do have a better beer selection than I would would expect in a similar bar. There... More

After arriving early for our 3:00 PM boat excusion, my husband, brother-in-law and I decided to wait at the Hot Spot. The drinks were well priced, the atmosphere cordial and pleasant. I would most certainly go there again.

This place is very odd - there's no one to greet when you walk in. The bartender said they had no soft drinks (this is a pub?) and no table service at lunch. Had to pickup my lunch in a different bar area. It's rundown and dirty. The ladies room was positively gross. There were a few rough characters at... More

The fact that this bar has history and was on the water made it pretty cool. However, it was definitely for the young scene. I only ordered two drinks, one for each of us, and it came to 15 dollars. I get the same things anywhere else for less. We only went there because that is where you get on... More

It is what it is - a pickup joint for 20 somethings - not a really nice place, but very popular - we had a drink and left

We went here to board the riverboat tour we booked and were so surprised with this great little establishment! It's right on the water overlooking the bridge and the Providence River. The staff was great and while the menu is small, everything is cooked on a little wood burning grill. The best hot dog I've had in a long time!

Meet friends and have a hotdog or free popcorn. Great mixed crowd in the warmer months. You can walk to other clubs on the water. Fun!!
