Welcome to Grace Church - Providence

Welcome to Grace Church

Grace Church: Evensong or Compline, anyone?

I know, going to church isn't what most people think of when they hear the word "nightlife" -- but I have to assume there are some other VT'ers out there who actually go to church, and who appreciate high-quality sung choir services in the style of English cathedrals. So I am going to recommend that, schedule permitting, a visitor to Providence attend choral Evensong or Compline held at Grace Church, which is conveniently located downtown just across from the Hotel Providence and Aspire. Music director Vince Edwards presides. Both services take place in candle light. Treat yourself to a worship experience that will bless you.

Dress Code: Whatever you'd wear to church, anyway. (Grace is also the site of the U2 Eucharist, when dress gets a little more avant garde.)

Address: 175 Mathewson Street, Providence, RI 02903

Directions: Corner of Westminster Street and Mathewson Street. Parking available just off Snow Street in a lot adjacent to the church.

Fete: Live music, good acts

I'm not part of the young, hip crowd, but if I were, I'd probably make tracks to Fete, a relatively new club which opened in Olneyville after an infusion of special tax financing. Fete has a 700-patron ballroom with two full bars, and a mezzanine for VIP guests. The Fete Lounge has room for 200. It announces a mission "to rejuvenate the relationship between music and revelry and to create a haven where both artists and audiences engage in an inspiring and gratifying cultural experience." So you really ought to stop over and see how they're doing with that!

Dress Code: Looks to me like anything goes.

Address: 103 Dike Street, Providence, RI 02909

Directions: In Olneyville, just off the 6/10 connector
