Rhode Island Yacht Club is the oldest yacht club on Narragansett Bay with a long history of yachting since the Club’s founding in 1875. We occupy a contemporary facility with breakwater-protected docks and a mooring field on Stillhouse Cove in Cranston, RI, conveniently close to downtown Providence.

The marina has a hoist, break water protected slips with electricity and water, moorings, dinghy dock, launch shuttle, pump-out station, and showers and changing facilities among other amenities. There are picnic tables and gas grills for on-shore meals overlooking the bay.

 

The Club operates year-round, with Club racing, Club cruises, fishing tournaments, inter-club events and many other social activities too numerous to mention. The newly renovated Clubhouse features panoramic views of Narragansett Bay and offers both formal and informal dining.

WELCOME TO AROOGA’S!

There’s never been a restaurant quite like Arooga’s before. How do we know? Spies. That, and because we’re not just some average, run-of-the-mill, sports bar. Nope. We’re a slightly above average grille house and sports bar. That’s right. Our housemade food is prepared by chefs instead of factory workers – it’s better. The fresh baked bread, wings sauces, salad dressings, the housemade soups. All better. The beer is colder. The TVs, TV-er. You can see every game from every seat in the restaurant. And we mean every game, because we have every sports package available all 365 days of the year on nearly 1000 flat screen tv’s between all of our locations. We’ve got free wi-fi, Buzztime trivia and NTN Texas Hold ’em. We’ve got over 80 menu items under $8.99. And several other items priced over $8.99 for the rich folks. So if you’re looking for great food prepared and served by above-average people that prepare and serve great food, you’ll find it at Arooga’s. If you’re looking for fun, you’ll find that, too. If you’re looking for your boyfriend and/or girlfriend, we haven’t seen him and/or her. So there you go, the proof’s in the pudding here at Arooga’s.

AROOGA’S MISSION

Here at Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar we strive to provide excellent food & super service to our present & future communities by utilizing the latest technology and earth conscious resources in the hospitality industry. Arooga’s promises to offer our customers as well as our employees the greatest experience to keep them wanting more.

AROOGA’S BLIZZARD BAR SYSTEM 

aroogas 1

Arooga’s is now serving the coldest beer in town and on the East Coast! Our Blizzard Beer System works to keepall 20 of our drafts at a chilly 29 degrees in all of our restaurants. Keep an eye on the half-keg temperature display to see the exact temperature your beer is being served at and you will know you are getting a cold, refreshing brew. 
 
Keeping the temperature of our beers below freezing not only makes the beer more refreshing and satisfying, but it also prevents foam and ensures that we are serving you the highest quality beer possible. Cheers!

Dating back more than 130 years in Newport, the polo matches are one of Newport’s grandest & most popular traditions, a living legacy from the Gilded Age, and open to the public. Audiences of several thousand spectators enjoy the contests against international teams, as well as teams representing major US cities, playing against the home team.

Minutes from downtown Newport, the International Polo Grounds are located at historic Glen Farm, 250 Linden Lane in Portsmouth, RI. This bucolic setting is the last 100 acres of what was once a 700-acre manorial farm whose settlement dates back to the 1600’s. Its classical stone barns from the Gilded Age and its park-like grounds were rehabilitated by Newport Polo founder, Dan Keating, and thrive today as an equestrian & community recreational property, and home of the Polo Series.

The Newport International Polo Series features teams from around the world & from major US cities playing against USA / Newport. The past season witnessed an exciting lineup of action-packed polo matches, international team debuts and memorable special events, for fun on and off the field, matched by an enthusiastic spectator audience.
