Welcome to Block Island's premiere nightclub


Ever since 1976 when Captain Nick DePetrillo built the timber frame structure standing on 34 Ocean Ave. out of reclaimed material from the old Block Island Inn, the island has always had a place where good music and good times come first.  Although the original dirt floor, fireplace and chandelier are long gone, the spirit of the good ole' days is alive and well at Captain Nick's which now boasts the island's biggest and best sound system along with friendly, laid-back service.  Over the years thousands of bands have graced the stage at Captain Nick's and every summer between Memorial Day and Columbus Day, Nick's brings nothing but the best in live entertainment to Block Island.  Whether you find yourself grooving on a Monday at Disco Nite (an island tradition for over 20 years), catching the wave of new talent showcased during the weeklong Block Island Music Festival (held during the second week of June) or soaking up some rays on the deck Sunday afternoons with the Booze Beggars (Block Island's favorite bar band) we guarantee you'll have a blast- Block Island style.  You'll find yourself in good hands with the island's top bartenders making sure the libations flow til' the wee hours.  A favorite of locals and visitors to Block Island alike, Captain Nick's is a place to let your hair down, forget about your troubles on the mainland and take the fine art of entertainment to a whole new level.  Go ahead...treat yourself.
