Newport RI is an area of expensive homes , hotels , & restaurants . The harbor is filled with Yachts worth 1/2 million to 5 million dollars . Most of the people that are here must be over 30 ! Yet on a Saturday night . You see very few people over 30 . The clubs are jammed with the younger set . But the few visible people from the over 30 crowd are seen walking back to their hotel rooms . If someone opened up a lounge with a top 40 ,or classic rock band would they come out ? Places like the Eden at Harrah's Marina Casino in AC are always crowded with an over 30 crowd dancing and drinking martinis . Is Foxwoods Casino the nearest place that is more than dinner for the "older" singles/couples crowd ?
I was also suprised that the last time I stayed in Newport , that a hotel employee told me thet the nearest gay bar was in Boston . That this wouldn't be "tolerated " ( not sure what he meant ) in Newport . I would think a gay oriented place would do well in Newport .
How about places in the areas surronding Newport . Do they all close up tight after 1AM ? Any suggestions where my wife and I could go for something a bit less sedate than a jazz club on a Sat. or Sun. night ?
