I just donít see the appeal here. Tried to walk in Sat at 2:30PM and was overwhelmed with the smell of cigarette smoke- this was on the hipsterís clothing. I have been before and it wasnít this bad- people would not move to let people pass. The draft list isnít that impressive. I was only interested in one beer left over from the Evil Twin takeover. New chefís food looks interesting. Will try again on a weekday, but I think Noreyís draft & bottle list is way better. There are also some bargains at Noreyís that I donít see here on the bottle or draft prices.
No visit to Providence is complete without a visit to Julianís. It is located westward of central providence, but still well within walking distance. It is a relatively small, dimly lit (perhaps overly so) restaurant-bar. We visited mid-week for dinner and yet the place was still pretty busy. First-off the food was excellent and I would certainly return just for that. They offer a rather nice draught selection of some 20 lines with a healthy mix of local, regional and international beers. This included some sour Allagash beers, which I didnít even see in Maine. Beers are available in a range of sizes, so we got to try quite a few. The bottle selection had some rarer and vintage beers on it (including some Mamouche), but you certainly have to be prepared to pay for it! Without question the top venue in town for eating a supping quality beer.
If I could describe my perfect restaurant, Julianís would be it. I stopped in last Sunday night after my flight was canceled, and my visit made me glad I got stuck in Providence for an extra night. The beer selection is amazing - a great mix of local, European, and super-rare beers. They also have small pours, which was perfect for being able to try more of their selection at a reasonable price. The food was also delicious - I had the hangar steak and the soup of the day. The service was nothing short of impeccable! I sat at the bar, and all the guys were very friendly and kept me company. I canít say enough great things about this place - I truly loved it.
Our second stop on our PVD city tour. Great European selection of beers, literally wanted to try every one. The food menu is not that big but the specials board has a lot on it. There are not many bar seats here, itís mostly table seating, which we didnít mind. Itís a really funky dťcor in an up and coming neighborhood. Good times!

Great time, classic West End restaurant that focuses on good beers youíve probably never heard of.
Big gripe is that I wish there was more bar stools, and the lighting is kinda weird. But, they always have funky euro beers that I have never heard of (sours, and belgians) and that is awesome. They also serve food about an hour after everyone else closes the kitchen and they are open on Mondays.
Wow! An eclectic restaurant in downtown Providence serving excellent food and a nice selection of draft beers and bottles. The place was packed upon our early arrival and the wait line only got longer as we left. The whole menu sounded good but I had to choose one entree and was not disappointed. This is an essential stop in Providence.
Went here a few weeks ago while on a beer bar hopping extravaganza in Providence. Was with another beer loving buddy. The light AND heavy food selections catered to our opposing appetites. Some reminded me of my days in Boulder - fresh and healthy and yummy! Truly a menu of specialty brews that made us that more grateful for the amazing "beerbuddy" app! good times.
