Tiki Time!

Soak up the last summer vibes with these tropical drinks


Summer isn’t endless in Rhode Island, but you can keep fall at bay for a few weeks longer by soaking up some island vibes with tropical drinks at this local tiki bar.

Rhode Island’s newest tropical bar and restaurant has killer views from its waterfront locale on Howard’s Wharf, with the option of dining in or taking a dinner cruise before or after sampling the extensive menu of tiki drinks.

Most authentic tropical drink: The Reef Painkiller will transport you across the waters to the British Virgin Islands, where this classic tiki drink of Pusser’s rum, pineapple, orange, coconut was invented.

Most interesting drink: The White Squall, a pour of locally distilled Newport Gin over a cube of frozen watermelon puree.

The perfect pair: Coconut shrimp with sweet chili sauce or the tuna and avocado ceviche.

10 Howard Wharf, Newport. 401-324-5858
