Celtic Pub

755 Broadway, Pawtucket

When we overheard someone announce with great hubris “I made Fireball fudge!” we knew we were in a solid spot. Several tube-style TVs adorn the walls for your viewing enjoyment and a window AC unit will surely cool you from that Fireball fudge (if you’re lucky enough to snag a bite before it vanishes). 755 Broadway, Pawtucket

Keno: No
Bonus kitsch: A working cigarette machine! Plus the nod to law enforcement with the various Police Department badges on display behind the bar. 

News Cafe

43 Broad Street, Pawtucket

Have you heard? The News Café has become quite a hot spot for live music. We love the ‘50s-style black and white-checkered floor and the classic vinyl albums on the wall. Try a $1 Jell-O shot, a $3 plate of nachos or a Slim Jim for sale behind the bar. 43 Broad Street, Pawtucket

Keno: No
Bonus kitsch: Addams Family pinball machine and classic vinyl albums on display.
