RI Liquor Store Hours Of Operation

Is Bridge Liquors is open?

We pride ourselves on our reputation in Newport for having the longest liquor store hours as is allowed by Rhode Island regulations (which makes for a more complicated schedule than you might expect).

Liquor store hours in the Ocean State are divided into two seasons: Summer and Winter.

Summer Hours

Summer Hours are from June 1-October 31. During that time we are open:

Monday 9am-11pm
Tuesday 9am-11pm
Wednesday 9am-11pm
Thursday 9am-11pm
Friday 9am-11pm
Saturday 9am-11pm
Sunday* 10am-6pm

Winter Hours

Winter Hours are in effect November 1-May 31. During that period, we are open:

Monday 9am-10pm
Tuesday 9am-10pm
Wednesday 9am-10pm
Thursday 9am-10pm
Friday 9am-10pm
Saturday 9am-10pm
Sunday* 10am-6pm

*We are open on Sundays from 10am-6pm, except for long weekends when there is a Monday holiday, in which case we are open until 9pm.

By state law, we are closed Thanksgiving DayChristmas Day and New Years Day, though we are open until 11pm on Thanksgiving Eve and New Years Eve (We are allowed be open until 11pm on Christmas Eve, but typically find there isn’t much demand to stay much past 9pm). Otherwise, barring some kind of extreme weather emergency, we will be open.

[Addendum: If Christmas and New Years Day fall on a Monday as it does in 2017 and 2023, then state law requires us to close at 9pm on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. However, we can (and will) be open until 11pm the Saturday prior.]
