Say you’re celebrating another rotation around the sun when you start to take note of how varied your interests are. You love great design, cool architecture, an ice-cold beer, interesting art, exploring a new city on a bike, and partying down with your nearest and dearest. It only makes sense that you’d throw a birthday bash in a gorgeous space that serves up delicious cocktails, a whole lot of beer, good food, and a solid dose of ambience.
And how much better would all that be if you could end the night with a tipsy set of karaoke with your buddies before rolling upstairs to sleep it all off. Enter Providence’s The Dean Hotel, new to the top of your #birthdaybucketlist.

How To Indulge Like A B-day Wunderkind
They don’t call you a party animal for nothing. You’ve got a knack for choosing cool places and even cooler people to share them with. The Dean is one of those bucket list worthy party places that has it all. Great design, of course, and delish German inspired food matched with an American craft beer hall at Faust, a moody cocktail lounge at the Magdalenae Room, and the Boombox lounge for straight up karaoke beat dropping. How’s that for an epic night to celebrate your best birthday ever.
How To Recover From Said Indulgence
After a snooze sesh with your mates in the bunk rooms, roll on out of bed and head down to the Bolt Coffee Company for a much-needed espresso tonic to re-up before hitting the streets of Providence for the day. Rent a bicycle from the Dean x Dash bike program and check out the local bookstores, record shops and neighborhoods. Providence is known for its charm and the small, local businesses are a huge part of that. If you have a chance to swing by the farmer’s market, that’s pretty rad too. Hey, it’s your birthday weekend, so do whatcha wanna.
How To Keep Up The Inspiration For The Coming Year
