Disco in Rhode Island
Rhode Island surprisingly has one of the
hottest discos on the East Coast. The
historical areas of the state give the
impression of old time colonial village by
day and hot night life spot by night.
Providence is one of the largest cities in
the state, so thatís where most of the
hottest action can be found.
Ultra is the hottest disco anywhere in Rhode Island. This place goes absolutely
crazy on the weekends. They have four large bars in the main room with some of
the most skilled bartenders in the business.
On any given night, you can stand back and watch as the bottles are
juggled in the air or the 3 bartenders do a little beer bottle boogie for you.
They also have a huge dance floor with 3
elevated platforms for those of you who love
to be the spotlight dancer at the disco.
laser light show that goes on from open to
close will completely mesmerize you as you
dance and sweat it up on the body to body
crowded dance floor.
For those of you who are used to partying in
style, they also offer 2 upper levels of VIP
rooms! This is the area of the club where
you can relax in the wrap around sofas
drinking your favorite $1000 bottle of
Hennessy and enjoying the view of the dance
floor down below.
Live entertainment and shows are also
performed at the club most weekends out of
the month. This club has even seen DJ Green
Lantern come in
and grace its turntables
with some of the hottest dance music around.
There are a lot of other small discos
located around Rhode Island, but Ultra
really is the only TRUE disco that the state
has to offer.
Most of the smaller cities have a few dance
clubs, comedy bars, and things of that
nature scattered around, but to actually
find a disco in the area is almost
impossible. Newport has a few larger dance
clubs in the busy tourist district as well.
The scene really died down after the fatal
disco club accident that happened a few
Warwick used to be home to a hot spot by the
name of The Station a few years ago. In a
tragic event caused by pyrotechnics, the
ceiling caught fire and burnt almost 100
club goers inside to death. Since that time,
most of the discos that were located inside
of the older buildings closed down.
pretty much closed the book on disco life in
