A popular choice for honeymooners, Rhode Island has a rich array of intimate spots to enjoy a late-night cocktail. Cozy up in a velvet booth at Providence’s Magdalenae Room, whose candlelit nooks and flirty murals recall a forgotten scene from Moulin Rouge. And in Newport, the nation’s oldest tavern still stands, a proud testament to its sturdy Colonial craftsmanship (some restoration has been done, and the beer and wine list is updated often). Meanwhile, Newport’s historic harbor is home to a handful of lively bars, such as the Wharf Pub, offering a selection of New England craft beers as well as a full dinner menu.
