Block Island's Premier Night Club

      Ever since 1976 when Captain Nick DePetrillo built the timber frame structure standing on 34 Ocean Ave. out of reclaimed material from the old Block Island Inn, the island has always had a place where good music and good times come first.  Although the original dirt floor, fireplace and chandelier are long gone, the spirit of the good ole' days is alive and well at Captain Nick's.

      Over the years, thousands of bands have graced the stage at Captain Nick's which boasts the island's biggest and best sound system. Nick's brings nothing but the best in live entertainment to Block Island.  Whether you find yourself grooving on a Monday at Disco Nite (an island tradition for over 20 years), catching the wave of new talent showcased during the week long Block Island Music Festival (held during the second week of June) or soaking up some rays on the deck Sunday afternoons with the Booze Beggars,  we guarantee you'll have a blast- Block Island style.  You'll find yourself in good hands with the island's top bartenders making sure the libations flow til' the wee hours. 

      A favorite of locals and visitors to Block Island alike, Captain Nick's is a place to let your hair down, forget about your troubles on the mainland and take the fine art of entertainment to a whole new level.  Go ahead...treat yourself.
