This is a great store, the mix-a-six program is great. Good selection, friendly people. I randomly hit it up recently on a Southern Tier tasting night which was a nice surprise. So they do some events. What I also really like about Nikki's is that you can sometimes find great bargains. They mark down beers on orange price tags to make it clear. On my last visit I got a Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel for 3.99 instead of the usual 4.79 and a Benchoise Reserve Belgian ale for 2.99 instead of the regular 4.29. They also have things marked with BA ratings. And separate things into various areas on the shelves: Germans, Asians, Belgians, English, US. Also current popular styles usually get an end of the shelf, new beers get an area of shelf clearly marked, and there's usually a discounted beer area (like right now they have holiday/winter ales - I saw a big Belgian bomber of holiday ale marked down from 10.99 to 3.99 but decided i probably didn't need that). GOOD STUFF.

I am lucky enough to say that this is not only an amazing place with an outstanding selection and great staff, but since they moved to their new location (much larger and and swanky looking than the one pictured) they are also the closest place to my house! The only drawback is that since they've moved I've been spending a bit more on beer than I used to! (due to a lack of self control, no fault of theirs) They offer a discount on mixed six packs which is really nice when you want to try new things but don't want to commit to an expensive six pack of something you may not enjoy. They also have (I think) weekly in store tastings.

New location is awesome. Spirits selection is very solid. Helpful staff, routine specials, and lots of tasting events throughout the week. Mix-a-six program and vintage beer room are personal favorites.

Hands down the best selection in town, and the staff is friendly, helpful, and well educated on craft beer. The vintage room is just an added bonus. Get here if you're in town!

Nikki's has changed locations. Their new store is truly a mecca for beer lovers. The owners are knowledgeable and passionate about beer and their collection is unmatched. If you live in Providence, this is the place to go to find a terrific selection of beer.

Nikki's had some good things, but I suppose my expectations may have been too high.

Nikki's could make me move to providence so I would be closer. This is my favorite bottle shop and I'll be traveling across the south on 95 a lot more rather than out rt 9. The owners are knowledgable and super helpful without any attitude. They offered suggestions based on styles I was looking for and what I was buying. They even offered the 10% discount when I bought five bottles. They made sure I knew about an upcoming event based on the style of beers I purchased. The cellar room had several good bottles and the prices are reasonable markup.

The craft selection here is great. The owner's are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I went here for the first time for a Smuttynose tasting and walked out with a mix-a-six of some various crafts and an extra bottle of smuttynose imperial stout to age. This was my first time, but won't be my last visit.

This place is fantastic. The beer selection is the best I have encountered so far in Rhode Island and the staff here really knows their stuff. At first glance from outside it looks like a normal tiny liquor store. As soon as you enter you can tell this it is totally centered around beer. On my last visit I spent almost an hour speaking with the owner he is a really nice guy and knows beer very very well. The prices here are definitely reasonable plus you cant beat their mix a six or mix a case deal. This is my go to spot for craft now and I would recommend any RI craft lover that hasn't already to come and check them out.

If you like beer you will like Nikki's. I like funky beers and finding them around here can be tough.Service was top notch. Big thanks to mike for treating me like a friend. I also found prices to be very reasonable, when compared to Massachusetts. Returning is a nobrainer I can't wait.
