The Fastnet Pub if pizza, Guinness and a round of darts is your post party mood, then head to the Fastnet (just remember to be nice to the locals!)

The Landing if its summer and you want another round of shots and some warm ocean air, this is the spot

Midtown Oyster Bar whether you want to be indoors or out, there’s plenty of space to gather

Wally’s Wieners/Copper Club intimate and the best place to get one more espresso martini(pro tip: order a giant one to share with the group)

Clarke Cooke House by far the best place to roll-in for a few more hours of late-night glam

Bar And Board Bistro head here for a signature cocktail (downstairs) or a bit more dancing (upstairs)

Smugglers Waterfront Bar if traveling by boat, Smugglers is your spot. Pull up to the Ann Street Pier, and head inside for bar games and people-watching

The Coastal Queen

Queen Anne’s Loft bright and intimate, customizable and chic, perfect for a shower

La Forge Casino Restaurant classic and scenic, there’s no better place to gather than on the back porch

Gardiner House

Gardiner House whether in the sunroom or the ballroom, the space is bright and airy with panoramic views of Newport Harbor

The Conservatory at The Vanderbilt with its lush greenery, rattan furniture, glass walls, The Conservatory and adjoining patio are perfect for a casual-yet-elegant affair

Boat House with coastal views of the Sakonnet River, this Tiverton establishment is a perfect spot, especially if you’re looking to avoid downtown Newport

DeWolf Tavern a renovated 1818 warehouse on the edge of Bristol Harbor, the vibe here is cozy and the space is suited to whatever sort of event you have in mind
