A chill in this unusually mild winter has swept through the village making clear that there are still plenty of cold, gray and dreary days ahead for hearty New Englanders. Punxsutawney Phil has emerged from hibernation to predict that we will have an early spring, so all is not lost! Now is the time to start planning your favorite spring celebrations! Breffny’s, on the second floor of Pawtuxet Village’s O’Rourke’s Bar & Grill, is the first place to start your search.
The setting of Breffny’s is an ideal setting for nearly every event or gathering ~ it is cozy, intimate and casual. The room can accommodate up to sixty people who can congregate at the bar or around any one of several high tops, but there are also smaller groupings where quieter conversations can be held. In the winter, the room is warm and golden making guests here feel as though they are in their own homes. Soft lights add to the ambience while the waters of Pawtuxet Cove reflect the night-time glitter of the nearby harbor and homes. Sun streams through the windows, bathing the room with light.
On any given night, the bar’s comfortable stools might be crowded with revelers who are raising their glasses to toast a promotion or to make an important announcement. In the light of day, a shower might be hosted by a soon-to-be grandmother or maybe a somber group has gathered to share memories of a loved one at a collation dinner
Breffny’s has a full catering menu of classic comfort food from O’Rourke’s, the popular restaurant that has been a mainstay in historic Pawtuxet Village for over a decade.
