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.

    Loved everything about this place - th3 ambiance, the story behind it, the food, the drinks, the service. The music was a bit loud and I would have liked the oysters we ordered to come out first and not last. But other than that loved it and will definitely be back.

    My husband and I went on a date since we have been wanting to try this place. The vibe was chill and relaxing. The crowd was diverse and much to our surprise, we were happy that there was an R&B singer performing. The music was enjoyable although loud to have a conversation. Our drinks were delicious. He had the Money Clip and I had the Fruta y Fuego. We liked them so much we had seconds. We started with local oysters from RI which were a good size & very tasty. My husband ordered the corn fettuccini and I ordered the Short Rib Guisada. My short ribs were melt-in-your-mouth; the sauce was delicious complimented with fried garlic pieces and the potatoes were yummy too. We will definitely be back again.

    Great atmosphere to relax and enjoy some great, unique cocktails. The ambiance and music were just right to allow for easy conversation. I didn't feel like we had to yell like in most places. We didn't have the food but what we saw being brought to tables looked delicious!

    Waiting 35 minutes for a drink. Place was clearly understaffed which is understandable but location was also advertised as one of nicest bars in providence. Should be able to fill out full staff if that was truly the case.

    The drinks were fun - the garnish on one of the drinks was inconvenient - just a huge bundle of parsley. We should have taken it home to replant (just felt wildly unnecessary). Cheeseboard was good, the prosciutto tasted very strange/off, so we didn’t eat it. The entrees we won’t be getting again (I would say skip food if you go here, and just get a cocktail or two) I would try the food again if they improved, and made it clear they improved. Their safety-net food is a burger and they couldn’t make the burger the night we went.

    Overpriced food poorly prepared and presented. Cesar Salad described on the menu, served with white anchovies, came without them. I added grilled chicken, which was tough and over cooked. Onion Burger was served with tepid fries. The soda was flat, the red wine was sub-standard.

    Needle and Thread impressed me every time I go! Amazing staff, service, and ambiance. We got an old fashioned and an arsenic and old lace. But incredible drinks, well balanced and properly made. We got a charcuterie board for food, which was amazing as well! My boyfriend and I split it and it was enough food for us. Definitely could be an appetizer for 4-6 people. So good. I will definitely be back again.

    Really great food and unique venue! The menu is small but they really knock your out of the park with what they do have. Highly recommend the cessation, short ribs and the fettuccine with clams! The inside has true speakeasy vibes and is perfect for a date or a night out with girl friends. I also loved the theme named cocktails - we’ll back again :)

    Service amazing from the host to the serving staff, all great. Food was pricey, maybe due to costs of inflation. However, if comparing prices, oysters across the board, pricier here. Music, entertainment, on point! Kudos to owners, staff for satisfying a need for connection and solid place to meet friends and make friends. Noise level a bit high (voices) this maybe unavoidable due to structure.

    Needle & thread used to be phenomenal. However, I can see their service and food quality going down. The only thing my party enjoyed during our visit were the cocktails. They have removed a number of things from their food menu & the food wasn’t as delicious as it usually is.
