Never mind shipping up to Boston, Dropkick Murphys frontman Ken Casey shipped down to Providence to open Whiskey Republic: part Irish pub, part sports bar and a whole lot of fun. It's got a full service kitchen, 20 HDTV's so you don't miss a moment of the game, and a great waterfront location on South Water Street.

Whiskey Republic serves up all your favorite game day and pub foods in a fun, inviting atmosphere. Their signature Whiskey Wings are available in Smoky BBQ, Kentucky Bourbon and Whiskey Root Beer sauces, among others. The mouth-watering burgers are eight ounces of Black Angus beef served with your choice of toppings and hand cut fries. (And any time you can add a fried egg for $1, do it.) Entrees include Fish & Chips, Traditional Shepherd's Pie and a righteous Mac & Cheese that you can also top with pulled pork.

Of course, with a name like Whiskey Republic, they have to have a serious whiskey list. Whether you favor Scotch, Irish whiskey, bourbon or Canadian, you'll find something to sip. Ever tried Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon? How about Oban 14-Year Scotch? Or Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve? Thought so.

Whiskey Republic also hosts live entertainment, with a stage and sound system fit for a rock star, and a variety of special events like karaoke, pub triva and game day parties. Book your next special event there, too.

Can't-Miss Dish: Republic Burger with Irish cheddar, smoked tomato, fried pickles and Boston bibb lettuce, served with hand cut fries.
