Private Events / Commodore Room

Stunning, panoramic views will make an impressive background for your next special event.


For generations, the RI Yacht Club has been honored to welcome our community and the public as they hold their special events in our beautiful Commodore Room.  Overlooking the Providence River, there are few private function rooms that can match the views and the high-quality experience you will have in our Commodore Room.  

Your event will have access to our professionally staffed and fully stocked bar, a delicious and exquisite menu of food provided by R|evolution American Bistro, and even access to state-of-the-art Audio/Visual resources like a big-screen projector, speakers, microphones, etc. From Valet Parking, to a full list of additional service providers (DJs, photographers, facilitators and trainers, and even clowns), we have the resources to make sure nothing is missed in the planning and execution of your event.

We are always proud to get exceptional reviews from guests who have held a wide array of events in our Commodore Room:

  • Corporate Breakfast Meetings
  • Private Birthdays
  • Private Brunch for Friends
  • Baby Showers
  • Wedding Showers
  • Corporate Training Events
  • Wedding Ceremonies and/or Receptions
  • Corporate Parties and Celebrations/Award Ceremonies
  • Funeral Collations
  • Anniversaries
  • Family Reunions
  • Private Wine and Beer Tastings with Food Pairings
  • Association Meetings and Charity Groups
  • Fundraisers


We will do our best to accommodate any of your special requests, whether developing a featured special cocktail list, or providing you with a list of local service providers (performers, celebrants, photographers, etc.).  R|evolution American Bistro will customize an amazing menu to fit almost any budget, and make sure your service during your event is as memorable as the food.
