Bar Crawl: Newport

Off-season bar-hopping is more fun when crowds dissipate, there’s a chill in the air and fireplaces are lit.

White Horse Tavern
Grab a seat at the bar inside the country’s oldest operating tavern, open since 1673. Pay homage to Newport’s rum-running history with a Tavern Mai Thai while warming up near the fireplace, then stay for the three-course November Restaurant Week menu. 26 Marlborough St., Newport, 849-3600,

Bar and Board Bistro
The cocktail menu is a throwback to Newport in the ’70s and ’80s when America’s Cup sailing races ruled. Go for a classic Cosmopolitan or Mount Gay Rum and tonic, or pay homage to the famous remake of the espresso martini. 282 Thames St., Newport, 619-1022,

Surf Club
Get flashbacks of summer at this chill underground bar and restaurant with a surfer vibe. It’s never too cold for a Pineapple Express or Coco Cabana when you’re counting down the days to beach season. 337 Thames St., Newport, 619-5700,

Forty 1º North
Even though temperatures have dipped, the view is just as spectacular at this oval bar that overlooks the harbor. Soak up the fire, sip Champagne and feel like the rich and famous. 351 Thames St., Newport, 846-8018,
