This bar has cornered the local market on beers. It's a nice neighborhood beer bar located near the JWU Harborside campus. It has about 15 stools at the bar and a handful hightop tables and chairs. There are 3 HDTVs and a back patio with several more tables. There are about 12 beers on tap from all the local breweries. Revival (Sean is often seen here), Foolproof, Grey Sail, Buzzards Bay, Gansett are almost always on tap here. They also usually have Founders, Uinta, Victory, BBC, etc. on tap. The prices are always either $5 or $6 bucks. The have a full bar and wine as well. Dave the owner/bartender is a cool guy who will chat with you as soon as you sit down. His wife is a great cook as the food menu is limited, but the wings, sliders, nightly specials are excellent. Get the bacon wings! If you are in the area, be sure to go here. It has been a regular hangout for myself since it opened a year ago.

Great little bar in Rhode Island that focuses on local craft beer, local spirits and interesting bar food. I've had beers that I've never seen anywhere else. Dave is knowledgeable about the beers and uses the correct barware for serving them. His wife is a great cook and has interesting sliders, poutin and wings (bacon wings are awesome). They also have duck bacon on the menu occasionally.
There is no parking lot, however there is plenty of parking on Narragansett Blvd and the side streets.
If you're in the area I would strongly recommend you take a chance on heading into the What Cheer Tavern. You won't regret it.

Nice vibe at this small craft beer bar, a welcome addition to Providence. Husband, Dave bartending and his wife in the kitchen. Food was very good and the beer selection though not huge, great quality selection from local brewers.
Place was very clean, nice friendly cliental. Can't wait to have an excuse to visit again, note it is closed Sunday and Monday.

Totally missed that this placed opened and it took my friend in Germany to alert me to its existence. Located on the corner of Allen's and New York Avenue, What Cheer has a nice neighborhood vibe. Seating consists of an L-shaped bar with 12-15 stools and a few hightop tables. With flat screen televisions in every corner, pretty much every seat provides a clear view of a tv. Eight taps and the big draw is that most are local. Offerings on draft consisted of BBC Coffehaus Porter, Uinta Hop Notch IPA, Revival Saison & Double Black IPA, Grey Sail Flying Jenny & Stargazer, Foolproof Backyahd IPA & Barstool Golden Ale. There was also a decent selection of small format bottles - Founders IS & Breakfast Stout, a couple Germans, Hoegaarden and a number of others I didn't take the time to peruse. If beer's not your thing, the bar is fully stocked with spirits as well as some wine offerings. Menu is somewhat limited, but I have to say that the chili was filling and quite tasty. Service was pleasant and prompt and I had the opportunity to speak with the owner who was quite friendly. Prices for drafts were pretty reasonable (most were $5, some were $6) and pours were all served in Shaker Pints. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is a pretty new place that has openned off of Allen's Avenue. Small bar and kitchen that focuses on local beers and with a limited menu of appetizers and some daily specials. The beer selection was well-done with drafts featuring Revival, Newport Storm, Trinity, Grey Sail and a few others. The selection rotates regularly. The pub has been doing different tasting and tap take over events. A nice addition to a part of Providence that did not have too much to offer. By the way, in a true RI way, the Tavern is easily found right off 95 off Allen's Ave across from the 'Big Rooster'.
