About Us

Johnny's Atlantic Beach Club, an Aquidneck Island institution since the late 1920's (the exact date is lost to history), began it's long and storied journey as a simple roadside stand, opened by Johnny Kallas ad his uncle.

During Prohibition , Johnny's Middletown Spa and it's three secluded booths ( with curtains drawn for privacy) quickly became a favorite for bathers, businessmen, sweethearts, as well as the occasional bootlegger. Newport was in it's heyday, a virtual summer paradise for both wealthy and commoners alike, its magnificent beaches lined with boardwalks, merry-go-rounds, carousels, and picnic grottos.

Thousands of vacationers arrived daily-by bus, train trolley and excursion boat-from such faraway places as New York, and Fall River- to enjoy Newport's glittering attractions, famous the world over.
