Stop by and try this single IPA brewed with mango, pineapple, orange peel, and then dry hopped with azacca & mosaic hops. Coming in at 6.8% abv this beer is extremely crush-able and perfect patio beer. For reservations give us a ring at 401-831-3733! You don’t want to miss this party!

Rogue Island Breakfast & Lunch Press Release for Commencement

About Rogue Island Philosophy

Rogue Island Local Kitchen & Bar offers a contemporary menu inspired by the produce, protein, and people of Rhode Island.  Our highly seasonal menu is chef-driven and sourced exclusively from nearby farms, often within only 50 to 60 miles of the restaurant.  The craft beer, wine, and spirits offerings are carefully selected from micro and nano breweries, vineyards, and distilleries primarily located in southern New England.  Rogue Island is located within America’s oldest shopping mall, The Arcade, at 65 Weybosset Street in the Financial District of Providence, RI.

The decor of Rogue Island is industrial and sustainable in nature.  Our construction team was able to source our reclaimed and old growth wood from early 20th century Rhode Island barns, and our tables and bartop were handcrafted in Coventry.  Our bar, rail, and draft system metalwork was custom made by welders and craftspeople in Cumberland, Cranston, and Providence.  We made every effort to utilize the original materials of The Arcade; customers will see restored brick, repurposed foundation stone, and exposed timber as accents in our space.

Open for Business

While we are putting the final touches on the restaurant we hope for you are ready for a little sneak peak.
