Located inside the old Longbranch Inn, Nickel City is a dive bar where you can drink frozen cocktails, eat Detroit-style coney dogs, and completely avoid the sun. The music’s never too loud and they have lots of beer and cocktails to try out on a first date or when you come here to catch up with a friend. Stop by for a night cap if you live nearby or when you want to play pinball and avoid the crowds on Sixth.
