Drinking at the dive-bar-adjacent Nickel City makes you cool, like driving-a-Harley cool or I’m-with-the-band cool. The East Downtown cocktail bar arrives by way of Austin with a Buffalo, New York theme. This means an industrial setting—in this case, a fairly dark warehouse— and a menu proudly featuring boilermakers and burgers. And while that’s not different from most bars, it’s still a great place to slam whiskey shots, swig a Coors Banquet, and eat a greasy, griddled double-decker cheeseburger. Nickel City figured out how to build-in edginess, which makes the bar feel like there were a few decades where people smoked inside. And being open for lunch with 99-cent wings all day Monday makes it even cooler.
