Cocktail Party Planning Westerly RI
Sandy's Lighthouse - Why go to bed when you can have another drink? At Sandy's Lighthouse, located at [Address], the party marches into the late, late hours, as they have one of the best all-night parties. Of course, this could mean some serious pain the next morning (or, more likely, the next afternoon.) Don't say we didn't warn you.
Windjammer Lounge - Known for its simple décor and good drinks, Windjammer Lounge is located at [Address]. Just make sure you dress up a little, as it's not quite the frat bar you're used to from college.
Handle Bar Cafe is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Handle Bar Cafe
Goodtimes Cafe - If you need a place to unwind after another week of mindless TPS reports, Goodtimes Cafe, located at [Address], might just do the trick. Pretty barebones and without fanfare, but the prices are reasonable and there's no hassle at the door.
Harp & Hound, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Harp & Hound
Danny's - Boasting excellent service and strong drinks, Danny's, located at [Address], has a good crowd of regulars and a decent-looking clientele. As an added bonus, there's no cover, so this is a good place to hit without blowing your budget.
Cleats Sports Club - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Cleats Sports Club fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination. Not the ideal spot for fabulous, drunken debauchery, but it's a good as place as any to pre-drink.
Cottrell Brewing Co - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Cottrell Brewing Co is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Cottrell Brewing Co is more than able to oblige.
Hope Valley Pub Inc, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Hope Valley Pub Inc.
Casey's Pub - Think of Casey's Pub as a guaranteed hangover. And we mean that in the best possible way. Located at [Address], it's open all night, so it's a pretty good bet that you're going to be feeling it the next morning. Enjoy the late-night debauchery, but drink lots of water and pop some Advil.
