Candy Store, Bistro, & The 12m Yacht Club Room
The Candy Store
The wharf level is the home of the legendary Candy Store. A haunt of Cup Contenders Ted Turner and Dennis Conner, The Candy Store has long been ground zero for generations of the Newport sailing crowd. The room is wide open to the harbor and Narragansett Bay. The famous Candy Store Bar runs the length of the room, and is dominated by an over-scale antique "pond yacht" behind the bar.

The Bistro, with its central Bistro Bar, is located on the main floor of the original house. There is comfortable wicker seating in front of a vast open fireplace. The exposed original post and beam construction lend an 18th century feel. The owner's highly entertaining personal collection of America's Cup prints and other sailing memorabilia covers the walls and draws you in to the lively yachting scene and the events that have made this wharf such a player in the Newport sailing saga.
