“Community Bar, Creative Space, and Underground Dancefloor”
The Salon is a bar and nightclub located in downtown providence. as a destination for an after-work drink, a casual neighborhood meet-up, or late-night bash, The Salon serves as a community bar, creative space, and underground dancefloor. With two distinct levels, one can sit with a drink at a picnic table upstairs or descend into The Cutting Room for a range of entertainment, from dance parties with amazing DJs, to live shows, open mics, comedy, and spoken word events. The Salon is also available for rental for private events.
Salon manages to be a grungy, dark, dive bar, and the best place to dance your face off in Providence. Grab a few pickle-backs upstairs, before you head down to the dance floor (eerily called 'The Cutting Room') for live DJ's and the dance floor. Shadow boxing is the dance move of choice.
If you enter and the bar seems a bit too tame...head to the back and down the stairs. A whole new world. It's called the "Cutting Room" but all you need to know is that it's dark, the music is blasting, there's another bar if you need it, and you can dance dance
Whenever I go here, I can't stop dancing. I'd recommend not going before midnight and doing a bit of drinking on your way over. Thursday nights there's a DJ upstairs (or that was my experience). One time, my experience was a bit marred by the DJ-- I asked for country music, oldies or reggaeton-- he didn't have any of it :(. I like all music though, so wasn't a huge bother.
Salon consistently has DJ's that cultivate gettin' down. The low-key top-level bar tends to draw the conversational crowd and music straddles the line between hip/hop and salsa. Bottom level is decidedly for the ravers. EDM music typically, but a full service bar on the side. Drinks were reasonably priced.
S'mores, dancing, and drinks--what else do you need? The Salon has two floors, the first floor with a bar, tables for hanging out, and a small space for a DJ and dancing. Then there's the basement "Cutting Room," with a huge setup for all your dancing needs.
