Wher do adults go after 10PM in Newport ?

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 ?

Allure45,

No matter the club/restaurant, you're probably not going to find much open after 1AM. Remember this is New England, home of the famous "Blue Laws", and things are a little more straight (no pun intended)-laced here. I think there's probably something specific in the state/local laws that determines how late these places that serve liquor can stay open. The casinos like Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun make their own rules because they're sovereign territories. Good luck on your search.
