Nice place to have a drink on a hot Sunday afternoon by the waterfront. No hustle and bustle like in Narragansett or Newport. Good drinks and food

First time in providence and needed something to do before goin back home. So found a boat ride and then had a beer here. It's a great place to really chill out and it's got a great view - recommended for bar life and drinks

Great place to go for an after work drink in the nice weather. Sitting out on the patio overlooking the River in Providence is relaxing after a day at work.

Terrific burgers. Excellent Service with a smile. Great place to meet friends and hang out for some drinks. Outside tables overlook the River.

Spot is good. But not really scenic. Drinks are good, price also. But I can't say the same things about the food. If you order the food, then you should go to kitchen to pick up yourself, yes yourself. But kitchen was not a big regular kitchen, it was small and tiny kitchen. I rated this place with four stars...

Great spot right on the river. Has two bars inside and opens up a bar outside when it's busy. Fun spot to hang out. Has a tiny, tiny kitchen (one grill). I've never eaten here and have only grabbed drinks.

We sat outside on our last day of vacation and it was a great way to spend our time. We had grilled zucchini , chicken skewer and sausage sandwich that were spiced and grilled to perfection. Our waitress was very attentive , offering ice to freshen up drinks , always with a smile. The music was good and looking out... 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
