Barrington Restaurants & Nightlife

Some of our personal Favorites

Barrington is not exactly a nightlife “destination” among the East Bay. In fact, until 2011, Barrington was the only “dry” town in Rhode Island (alcohol sales were prohibited outside of restaurants). That said, Barrington does have some great places to eat. And there are plenty of bars in surrounding towns, including Warren, Bristol, Seekonk, and East Providence.
