PRIReview

With velvet stools and curtains and a dark walnut wood interior (hence the name), The Walnut Room is a great place to nurse a cocktail after reading too much news or Albert Camus. It’s also a great place to get a cocktail and some bar snacks, period—after a long day walking around the city, browsing the art at the nearby RISD Museum, or just because you want something to drink. We recommend any of the drinks made with pistachio liqueur, which adds a nutty, orgeat-esque sweetness that you can’t quite put your finger on (in a good way). They do have some outdoor seating, though it’s usually taken by a bunch of Brown University professors or Rhode Island School of Design students.

Bayberry Beer Hall

Bayberry in the West End is a modern beer hall that’s lowkey enough for a quiet Thursday evening, but still busy enough for a Friday night out.
