4/5  rDev -13.4%

Transcribed from notes dtd Sa, 15 Jan 2011.

Located in the back right corner of the North Providence Marketplace, the checkout counter was just inside the door on the left, followed by a short bank of coolers down the left wall and another cooler against the back wall. The impressive point was that half to two-thirds of their space was dedicated to beer! The depth and breadth of their selection was astounding, but I found myself wishing that there were more beers from the New England area, vice focusing on domestic craft beers and imports. I realize that mine may be a dissenting opinion, but when I travel, especially to shop for beer, I want local or regional beers that I do not have access to normally. It was a clean, well-lighted place for beer, but just not quite what I was after.

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.
