Great little bar on the water!

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... read 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

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!!

Great little spot, right on the river with icy cold drinks and free popcorn before the great river tour. Take your drinks and step aboard, you won't be disappointed

The hot club is still a great place for drinks on the waterfront. Haven't been in a few years and not much has changed, still a great place to hang out.

I have been to this place several times and what inspires me to search it out when I am in town is the service and atmosphere. The food is great, don't get me wrong, but I love the deck and looking across the water in the evening. This is a fantastic place to hang with friends and family. You will... More

I would drive 30 miles from Norton to Providence every week to be in this perfect place. Marilyn is a perfect and lovely barmaid. Most of the people know each other. Prices are very reasonable, free popcorn is always fresh and tasty.
