When you go to bars, clubs, and restaurants, please remember that they are retail establishments and need to make some kind of a revenue from dancers or they will cease to sponser dance activity. If you don't drink alcoholic beverages, make a point to purchase something to eat. Do not bring your own water unless you have checked ahead and it's ok. In Rhode Island all bars permit smoking, often require that you be 21, and have very loud music.
THE CALL
15 Elbow St.
Providence RI
phone 401-751-2255
http://www.thecall.com
The Call was the first bar in Providence to offer swing dancing (post 1995). They have a Thursday BLUES BUFFET-Swing Night(21+)-with a live rotating band and a buffet for 5.00 entry fee, and a Swing Sunday(all ages 4-8pm) featuring BLUES WAGON, dance lessons with Ed Slattery, and a buffet for a 7.00 entry fee. See their web site for some of the many fine swing, blues, and zydeco bands they bring to RI. The Call has recently been renovated and is an attractive facility with a medium size wood dance floor (therefore unusually large for a bar). The Call is not as smokey as many bars, and is popular with people who can actually swing dance.
