Ocean Front Dining by Candlelight
All of the Romance, None of the Work
A gourmet meal, wine and your special someone bathed in the warm glow of candlelight. Who wouldn’t love it? Sure, you could try pulling off this superhuman feat at home, but let’s face it, most mere mortals are just not equal to the task.
We’re here to help at The Coast Guard House – we switch off the electric lights and offer dinners served in complete candlelight the second Tuesday of the month from winter through spring. It feels extravagant, and it is. It takes designer Katrina Momenee of Enchanted Branches three to four hours, with the help of restaurant staff, to arrange more than 300 candles and themed designs. The result is wow.
We don’t change the lighting outside, of course, so the panoramic view of Narragansett Bay is always breath-taking, forming the perfect backdrop to dinner, drinks and good conversation.
Candlelight dinners are a nod to the building’s long history. Illuminated only by gas lights and candles, the 1888 granite structure stood for decades before electricity came along. Once a U.S. Life-Saving Station, The Coast Guard House is an architectural treasure from Narragansett’s gilded past when Ocean Road was lined with huge hotels and summer “cottages,” attracting fashionable visitors from all over the country and beyond.
Narragansett’s shoreline is still a magnet, and the ocean view has never once disappointed. Sweep your partner off their feet at The Coast Guard House. Candlelight dinners are served the second Tuesday of the month through May. Make a reservation today.
