“Cocktails, brews, wine and appetizers with a view”
For great food and atmosphere, the Skiff Bar in Newport, RI is the place to be. Located inside the Newport Marriott, the Skiff Bar is quickly becoming one of Newport’s most popular hangouts.
Many of you know that my husband and I are frequent visitors to Newport. We’re there several times a month (or more) and really enjoy spending time in the seaside community. We love everything about Newport. The beaches, the history, the shopping, and especially the food.
From what I gather (and I am only speaking from my own personal experience here), Newport seems to have a reputation as a pricey and sometimes even an exclusive place to eat out. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of casual restaurants throughout the city, but they seem to be a little harder to come by.
Enter the Skiff Bar.
**Disclosure: My husband and I were invited to a complimentary evening of food & drinks at the Skiff Bar. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way.
The Skiff Bar, situated right in the heart of downtown Newport, is a casual bar/restaurant in which you can sit back and enjoy craft & local beers, eat some great food and enjoy an ah-mazing view of the yachts and sailboats in Newport Harbor.
If you are looking for a good value for your dollar in a laid-back, relaxed environment, I highly recommend checking out the Skiff Bar. I was there earlier in July (on my birthday as a matter of fact) and really enjoyed the whole experience. The food was delicious, the drinks were strong, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive and did I mention that there is an awesome view?
Since we’re in Newport so often, I definitely plan on making the Skiff Bar’s outdoor terrace one of my go-to spots this summer.
The Skiff Bar can be found inside the Newport Marriott, which is located at 25 America’s Cup Avenue in Newport, RI.
