One of Providence’s most celebrated dining destinations, Local 121 is an elegant and welcoming restaurant housed in the gorgeously restored former Dreyfus Hotel. Our culinary team works with local fishermen and farms to create a constantly-evolving menu of American seasonal cuisine prepared with a nod to tradition and technique, complemented by a diverse wine list and seasonally-crafted cocktails.
Housed in the former Dreyfus Hotel, which was built on Washington Street in the 1890s, Local 121 was painstakingly restored to its original beauty in 2007. The dining room is warm and welcoming, with cozy banquettes and oversized leather chairs highlighting simple Art Deco details. The Tap Room features floor-to-ceiling original mahogany paneling and stained glass windows that provide a sophisticated backdrop to a 12-seat bar and table seating. Downstairs, the Speakeasy – named after its purpose in the 1920s – is an intimate setting for private parties and events.
