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.
289 Knight Street, Providence
A hipster dive for sure, E&O is the perfect West End neighborhood spot. It offers a solid selection of beers, both current and classic, and the Magic Castle pinball machine and older version (yes!) of Golden Tee are available for your pleasure. If you pop in but forget your watch, no problem. The neon green John Deere clock has got you covered. 289 Knight Street, Providence
Bonus kitsch: Replica of Red Sox retired numbers, the glorious accordion and stuffed dog above the door.
