Nolan's Corner Pub

529 Atwells Avenue, Providence

What do a Schlitz clock, autographed pictures of the Magnum P.I. cast and Chuck Norris, and a non-working Daioh video game have in common? You'll find them all at Nolan’s on the corner of Atwells and awesomeness. An old school RI license plate (who needs a wave?) with TOTT (for "Talk of The Town"; the bar's previous name) reminds you that you're in the 401, baby. 529 Atwells Avenue, Providence 

Keno: No
Bonus kitsch: $1 pickled eggs, free pool and pizza on Wednesdays. 

Nick-A-Nee's

75 South Street, Providence

It’s a dog bar, has great live music with attentive crowds and a shelf with free books for the taking. Oh, and did we mention it’s a dog bar? A crown jewel of the Jewelry District, Nick-A-Nee's is cash only so make sure your pup brings some dough. 75 South Street, Providence

Keno: No
Bonus kitsch: “Entering Webster” sign and a giant swordfish above the bar.
