Cocktail Bar
An inviting craft cocktail bar offering classics, originals, inspired & familiar flavors. We sip, we savor, we share.

The inspiration for Needle and Thread came from the history of the space located at 45 Peck St. in downtown Providence. For more than half a century Antonio Conte dutifully served the professionals in the city's center, with an old world style haberdashery, providing suits, outer ware and evening attire. For more than 2 years the Needle and Thread was constructed piece by piece with the same attention to detail and love Mr. Conte poured into every garment he constructed.

Great unique drinks, excellent service, very cool ambience. Food was excellent too! There is a pretty steep staircase to get in, which adds to the speakeasy-ish vibe, but something to keep in mind if you’ve got mobility issues.

The space is very comfortable with warm and dim lighting. Food was great… small picky things and anything you want to drink. Staff was friendly and easy going yet attentive… impressed with the environment and how nice everything was. Tev’n our server and bar tender was 10/10. Can’t wait to go back.

Unfortunately we made it right after the cut off time for food (the kitchen stops at 10:45 we arrived at 10:50 🥲) but will definitely be making reservations again. The atmosphere is trendy, romantic & definitely a vibe I know my girls & myself will be enjoying in the near future. I’ll be making sure we arrive early enough to try food on the menu, and if they’re anything like the amazing drinks we had, we won’t leave disappointed.

My friends and I went last night and we really enjoyed the experience as a whole. The food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the paella special and it was really well made. The rice was seasoned to perfection. Paella is difficult and too often I find myself let down when I order it. My friends ordered the rice bowls and those were really good as well. The sauces and the mixture of flavors was really well done. The chef sent us some chocolate mousse which was so smooth. I highly recommend it.

This was a treat after 15 months of restriction. You enter off the street to stairs to below into the eclectic and darkened space as you’d imagined a speakeasy would be. The staff was so friendly and we were seated immediately.
Most impressive were the drinks, Charcuterie presentation and fabulous meals. Reasonably priced for great quality.
Bravo to staff and chef for making our first dining experience out memorable.

Was very nice, good was great and drinks were delicious. Was a bit difficult to eat food at the low tables. Decor and atmosphere was nice but it was uncomfortably hot! Definitely need air conditioning or circulation of some sort.

Chill atmosphere with great decor including original brick walls. Sometimes live music. Definitely a vibe!

The Beverage Manager (I think that was his title, my memory isn't too great sometimes) greeted us at the door, sat us at our table, had a great attitude and I liked how he introduced himself to us, it made me feel welcome and made it feel like I've been there before!

Excellent eats & drink, all with fabulous presentation! 👌

The Broken Doli is their 'stoli doli', it's pineapple-infused 🍍 Broken Shed Vodka and let me tell YOU! It is by far, the BEST doli I've ever had! Blows Capital Grille & Costantino's out of the water!! 🤯

This place is very classy, the place is well decorated and nice. The specialty drinks were amazing. The food was timely and delicious. The staff was nice and accommodating. Management came out ,greeted and asked how the patrons were doing. They had a jazz band playing led by saxophonist Leland Baker that was a perfect addition to the ambiance. I highly recommend this place and definitely look forward to going back

Didn’t even order....walked out of bar due to the unprofessional hostess who did not accommodate myself and 1 other for a table of choice when the entire restaurant was completely empty; I also had made a reservation a week in advance. She wrecked my excitement to try this new speak easy. I will not be back. :-(

Great place to go. Love the look and feel of the place. The drinks need to be better, couple of the drinks were made extremely strong. One of them smelled like it was rubbing alcohol. The food was great as well. Overall great place, just needs work on the drinks.

At first I was going to leave a negative review because when we got there, they were so busy that it was difficult to get their attention to even check in for our table. We had to wait a while to be seated and then to finally get service, but once we did it was great. The drinks are amazing and the food was honestly outstanding, very impressive. The decor inside is beautiful and the staff was really friendly. I would probably avoid this place during peak hours but we'll definitely be back!

My expectations were beyond met. There are few times where I come across an establishment that is up to par with food, service, AND ambiance.

I was incredibly pleased by the depth of flavor between the food and drinks our party received. I’ve already booked another reservation to come back.

Love love love it

The decor is absolutely beautiful! The staff were polite and informative. The food was like nothing I’ve had before. I had the N&T rice bowl. The multititude of flavors exploded. It was delicious. My husband and I ordered several different specialty drinks and they were very unique and delicious. Everything was fresh and we can’t wait to go back.

The staff from the moment you arrive are super attentive. The drinks were amazing and they got my complicated order correct. You can tell everyone has an eye for detail and is focused on the customer being comfortable. I didn’t like the sea salt in my particular salad and addressed it with the waitress it was fixed immediately. A1 service all around!

Winding down the artfully done wooden stairs to this underground gem of a bar, you get a sense of a warm, artfully designed and lived in space. It's hard to believe that it's only 6 months old, because it feels already like a well-established venue.
Our server Tevin was very smart and very enthusiastic about the food, drinks and overall experience, giving good explanations of the menu and offering tastes of wines or drinks.
The menu is more extensive than i had expected, with salads, starters and mains, all of which look appetizing and creative. Everything we ordered was delicious, and delivered our table by the owner, Dan, who could not have been more gracious and friendly. We loved the vibe, the crowd, the decor.
