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
Bonus kitsch: “Entering Webster” sign and a giant swordfish above the bar.
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
Bonus kitsch: A working cigarette machine! Plus the nod to law enforcement with the various Police Department badges on display behind the bar.
