This Rhode Island Restaurant Used to Be A Speakeasy And You Have to Visit

Rhode Island is full of unique history, much of it related to the state’s dark and fascinating past involvement with organized crime. Prohibition was a rough-and-tumble time in the Ocean State – a far cry from today’s popular tourist destinations. All that lies long in the past, but there’s one spot in Rhode Island that has lived on – for good reason. This restaurant was once a speakeasy, and it’s still one of the best places in the state to grab a burger. You have to check it out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You can find the Charlestown Rathskeller at 489 Old Coach Rd., Charlestown, Rhode Island.
