Bayberry Beer Hall is a contemporary take on a German beer hall—open year round and filled with plants, the space offers New England-made brews from local favorites like Oxbow, Maine Beer Co., Aeronaut, Proclamation Ale Company (and of course, Narraganset).

One of Providence's weirdest and best kept secrets. A holdover from the years from Providence was considered "the Jewelry capitol" of the US, Wolf E. Myrow is a vintage jewelry warehouse selling closeout jewelry supplies and wholesale jewelry findings. They've been around for fifty years and most of their stock is even older—you could wander around for hours and still only see a tiny portion of their collection of beads, tiny figurines, Swarovski crystals, and chandelier findings.
New Haven-style-inspired pizzas and classic, crispy thick-crust cheese and pepperoni, plus locally harvested raw bar, clam and seafood appetizers.

Even the gumball machine is stocked with colorful gumballs printed with the Pizza Marvin logo.
Hungry Ghost is an artist-owned studio and shop that sells a range of merch (all printed in-house), as well as repurposed vintage apparel, patches, pins, local zines, VHS tapes, and other deadstock eccentricities. Great for souvenirs and niche Rhode Island joke products (like their notorious "Rhode Island Slut" sweatshirt, inspired by a scene in the original Dumb & Dumber movie).
