Hospitality & Amenities

The grand entrance drive, known as Linden Lane, is lined by 130-year-old European linden trees that form a living canopy, while field stone walls separate the lane from its surrounding manicured grass fields, as it leads gradually to the polo grounds of the Newport International Polo Series.  From Linden Lane, there are two entry gates on the right hand side, leading onto the polo grounds: the Main Gate and the Lower Gate.  The Main Gate opens at 1pm on the day of the match, and the Lower Gate opens at 2:30pm.  Enter at either gate, with your bar-coded tickets purchased online or make your purchases at the gate.

The venue offers tableside seating within the Alex and Ani Pavilion, on various levels of the pavilion or at tables on the lawn, with beverage service from the Twisted Pony bar (no BYOB permitted within).  There is also lawn seating or bleacher seating for General Admission.  A portion of the lawn seating offers Reserved Tailgate Parking.  Reservations for tailgate parking spaces are available online only, by following the calendar pages to the desired match.

A hospitality area with vendors, food concessions and full service bar is located between the main gate and the Pavilion.  Unique sampling, jewelry, doggie accessories and official sportswear & souvenir merchandise of the Newport International Polo Series in the Polo Pro Shop are among an interesting collection of tented vendors.

Food and beverage concessions include a variety of gourmet food trucks, and a wide assortment of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at the Twisted Pony Bar for walk-up service. The Twisted Pony has American and imported craft beer, boutique fine wines by the glass or by the bottle, Veuve Clicquot Champagne, signature cocktails, unique soft drinks, and Pure Brazilian Coconut Water.

Luke's Lobster

It doesn’t take a great chef to make a great lobster roll.  It takes great lobster.  Luke’s only buys traceable, sustainable seafood from fisheries along the gulf of Maine bringing the best quality seafood to Luke's Lobsters in New York, Boston New Jersey, DC/Maryland, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Las Vegas.

Luke and his dad, Jeff, turned to their longstanding relationships with lobstermen to cut out the middle man and get that sweet lobster down to the city.  Each morning lobstermen haul traps from the open seas, and the traps are taken from the dock to Luke’s sister company, Cape Seafood.  Here, we steam them, pick them, and pack the meat in protective bags, then send them south to Luke’s Lobster. Each bag contains a quarter-pound of pure lobster meat from 5 or 6 unlucky lobster claws.

 Throughout the trek from Maine to our lobster shacks we track it the whole way and we know it's coming from Maine's sustainable fishery, not over-fished waters. The result is a deliciously fresh lobster roll that allows you to truly taste Maine at its best, with a clean conscience.

 The Gilded Tomato 

Meet Gilda and Gatsby - the two exquisite copper wood-fired ovens - on wheels - that are changing the pizza game in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. The goal: “truly fast food done with wellness in mind”.

The oven cranks at 1000-plus degrees, and the pizzas cook in 90-seconds. This is truly fast food done with wellness in mind. The slow food part is that the dough takes three days to make. The pizzas are then hand-crafted one by one with great care, and guests are invited to enjoy some "culinary entertainment"!

Gilded Tomato is a true "farm to table" operation, growing much of their organic produce in Rehoboth, MA. As far as pizza toppings go, they only offer what’s available seasonally, which keeps the pizzas tasting fresh and gourmet. The taste and fragrance are second-to-none. Gilded Tomato can be found at events and festivals all over New England (check their Facebook Page for an update schedule), elegant weddings and corporate events.
