Paddy’s Beach Club is One of America’s Top Beach Bars

Paddy’s Beach Club in Misquamicut is loud, brash, and a whole lot of summer fun. With its foam parties, DJs pounding out EDM, and summer crowds of beach bros and babes up from the Tri-State Area, it’s not for everyone, but for our money this is the one can’t-miss beach bar in Rhode Island. Day…
