Spacious beer hall that becomes less so the later it gets. – Nick's is open late, and business peaks after other area watering holes have shuttered for the night. Its size may make the bar appear empty early--even with a decent crowd--but it's good for leisurely cocktails or large groups. The original facade is well-preserved, though the interior has been colorfully redone--think dark pink and blue hues, high tables and chairs and the company's signature pineapples. A 50-foot bar and an unusual curved ceiling define the main area. The room to the left houses four pool tables, a smaller bar and a display of multicolored bottles.
Comfortable neighborhood bar – Nick's is sort of cavernous with soaring ceilings and a long bar, but the airy feeling is a nice change from the many crowded, cramped bars around. It's not really a see-and-be-seen scene, but more of a casual-meet-with-friends bar. Tables are nicely spaced, and the bar is fairly conversation friendly. There are pool tables in the adjacent room, but most people tend to gather in the main area.
