    There's nothing interesting about this place at all. It's completely trashed. I guess it has a nice view of Narragansett Bay, but you can get that a lot of places.

    Shooter’s (later Bootleggers), opened by Joseph Cerilli in June 1990, was a major addition to the nightlife scene on the city’s Old Harbor, which at the time was centered, as it is today, on the Hot Club, Fish Co. and the Corliss Landing development near the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier.

    Shooter’s, part of a national chain of casual waterfront dining and dancing venues, was in a three-story building that could accommodate nearly 1,600 patrons. The 25,000-square-foot complex featured dockside dining, a waterfront pool, bars inside and outside, a top-floor restaurant and a 90-slip marina. It cost $6 million to build.

    But problems plagued the nightspot almost from the start.

    The business changed hands after the first season of operation. There were licensing problems with the city and area bars and residents complained of the massive crowds that the club drew. Violence, including a 1993 killing in the club’s parking lot, was commonplace.
