Throw your next party downtown where the bigwigs of Providence used to sneak their banned booze. The Hyde, tucked under the stairs of The George on Washington, offers an intimate retro-styled bar that vibes with the feel of its illicit past as a genuine speakeasy. Enter from the streets of downtown Providence, through the main door and wind down the animal print-carpeted staircase into a dark room of velvet curtains, chestnut-colored leather couches, and plush pillows. Crystal balls sit at each table and Swarovski crystal lamps hang from the walls. An inconspicuous cabinet remains tucked in a corner where bootleggers hid their top-shelf bottles. The bar is small, but mighty, spinning cocktails next to the stage where comedians, actors, and musicians often perform. The modern day bar keepers shake and stir classics popular in the ‘20s, such as the Hemingway Daiquiri with Plantation white rum, BB Maraschino liqueur, lime, and fresh grapefruit. Don't just invite your friends to a party. Invite them to another era that they will never forget! Minimum rental: four hours.
Inspired by its location on Washington Street, Rhode Island’s colonial heritage, and George Washington’s many trips to Providence, The George on Washington Street provides a unique fusion of historic elegance and modern character. George Washington repeatedly boasted about the unmatched hospitality extended to him by the citizens of Providence, the same standard of hospitality that we take pride in providing to all who join us at The George. At the George, you'll enjoy elevated comfort food in addition to our many beloved American classics. Our piano lounge and dining room combine original architecture and details of historic character with contemporary entertainment to create an exciting and unrivaled atmosphere to be enjoyed by all. The George also offers an intimate event space in an original Providence Speakeasy. Book the Hyde's underground, retro-styled bar and space and make your next party a time traveling experience with drinks and vibe from a bygone era.
