I went here on a Friday night to check it out and to attend a Newport Storm tasting. There's decent sized wall of beer with a good selection of quality sixers and bombers: Three Floyds, Lagunitas, Unibroue, Great Divide...the usual RI stuff. A small belgian selection including Rochefort and Westmalle. Everything was clean, no dusty or old bottles that I saw. I was told Alpha King is actually selling very well, which suprised me (in a good way). More places like this offering a quality selection can only help in enlightnening the people of RI (and possibly nearby Providence College?) to the world of good beer.

They allow you to mix-a-six for 10% off which I always love and every bottle is individually priced so you know what you're getting yourself into.

Overall a quality place thats a little too far into Providence for me to visit regularly - but if you're in the area, it's definately worth a stop.

Re-Review: Its only been about a month since I've been here but they keep on improving. The wall of beer is now filled with all singles (seems to be promoting the hell out of the mix-a-six program). Excellent service too...this guy will go out of his way to get you what you're looking for. The Belgian selection is growing too - they now have Gouden Carolus, Van Steenberge, Fantôme. A great store that is getting better...well done!

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.
