CITY LIGHTS NIGHTCLUB


CITY LIGHTS NIGHTCLUB,
Located in Davol Square Market Place,Providence, in the 80’s and early 90’s,
(closed around 1990-91). It was the hottest night spot to be seen at.
It had an outdoor bar with fabulous lighting (something out of a movie scene)
serving all kinds of special drinks & foods with live bands and D.J. music.

When the Davol Market Place retailers did not live up to expectations, the crowds
started to dwindle and most of the stores were forced to close. In turn, the local star
studded night spot sadly went out of business. If you never went to City Lights
you’ve never seen the coolest place in town.
All the local celebrities went to this hot spot.

  3. Dwindled? I thought that Davol Square merchants were forced out by greedy landlords who kept upping the rent. Many moved to Garden City.
