Atlantic Beach Club, an Aquidneck Island institution since the late 1920’s, will soon see an end to its long and storied journey.

After almost 90 years of being in operation, it was announced on February 19th that LONGWOOD, a leader in special events and destination venues, would be purchasing the Atlantic Beach Club and opening it as a new waterfront wedding venue, the Newport Beach House, in 2016.

This is Longwood’s second venue in Newport, following the success of Belle Mer, which opened in 2006 and was named one of best venues in America for 2015.

While design work is already underway, the renovation and conversion of the iconic property will begin in early 2016. The rhythm will remain unchanged and still run by current management for the remainder of 2015, LONGWOOD will take over operations of the property in January, 2016.

The Atlantic Beach Club Restaurant will continue to operate through the end of 2015.

With all that said, this is it – there’s less than one month of live music and epic fun left on the iconic patio of the Atlantic Beach Club. Roomful Of Blues is the last band scheduled to play on the Atlantic Beach Patio on September 7th.

Get to the Atlantic Beach Club Patio on one of these last few weekends of Summer 2015, cheers to one last  Astro Bomb!
