Where else can you get a PB n Fluff sandwich and chase it with a Pickle Back shot? Another newcomer to the Downcity area, the Salon offers an assortment of specialty cocktails (try the Santa Julia) and shots, including the Pickle Back ($7) — one shot of Jameson followed by one shot of pickle juice. It's inexplicably addictive and downright nefarious. Or knock back a few Red Velvet shots (Dutch Chocolate and Stoli Vanil vodkas with grenadine), choke down a peanut butter-and-strawberry jam sandwich, chase that with a pint of Brooklyn Lager, and head downstairs to the Cutting Room, an unfinished basement with booming music that may incite vivid Ecstasy-fueled flashbacks from 1997. The Salon draws RISD and Brown students during their Narragansett Tallboy Table Tennis Tuesdays, and DJs like Tim O'Keefe, Ty Jesso, and Way O'Malley spin on weekends.
