New Riff, a beautiful distillery and event space!
Growing up in Kentucky I know the importance and history of bourbon. It is a tradition that has seen a wonderful resurgence due to shows like Mad Men. Sipping a cocktail slowly has a southern charm in a world full of fast moving people. When I heard about New Riff opening in Newport I had to check it out! It truly is a beautiful distillery and event space. A 60’ column still proudly on display greets visitors at the entrance. Make your way to the top floor to see the Tower Room and roof deck. Everything about the room is well thought out from the gorgeous bar to the contemporary lighting. And there are a few garage door style walls that can open up to let the outside in. It would be perfect for a patio ceremony and an intimate reception complete with a lounge area around the dance floor. Or the smaller Doubler Room would be a fun setting for a rehearsal dinner or engagement party for up to 50 people. They offer tours six days a week so be sure to check them out the next time you are in Newport!
