Kimi’s Bar’s restroom has dark black floral hand-painted wallpaper emblazoned with skulls and dragons, plus old lighting fixtures and a vintage bathroom sink. “The lights came from Czechoslovakia and Ukraine,” says bar owner Kimi Rich. “Some are from the 1940s and they are explosion-proof lights that would light up industrial tanks.” Even the bathroom door has a story. “We got on a ferry to Long Island to pick it up and it came out of a school that was built in 1910,” says Kimi’s husband, Billy Senecal, who helped designed the bar. 373 Washington St, Providence,
