Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $17 worth of casual American fare and drinks at Nick's Pub in Dogtown.
Open late every night, Nick’s Pub sops patrons with 29 tasty on-tap brews and a broad menu loaded with pub favorites and contemporary takes on comfort food classics. Before diving into the main course, warm up dormant taste buds with potato skins stacked with cheddar, bacon, and green onions ($4.95) or a homemade basket of chips paired with parmesan ($2.50). Nick’s full roster of dishes offers something for palates of all persuasions, including burgers and pizzas, a mountain of varying sandwiches and wraps, and wings with 15 saucy options and three different cooking styles. Tame the carnivore within with a juicy half-pound blue-cheese-and-bacon burger ($6.50+), or fill pie holes with circular delights such as a veggie pizza ($7.95 for a small), ideal for grazing herbivores and health-conscious ninja turtles. Heartier hankerings can also be quenched with hand-breaded fish and chips ($9.50) and Nick’s Cajun pasta, in which cavatelli, blackened chicken and peppers all swim happily in a spicy cream sauce ($11.95).
Post-repast, head to the upstairs bar and game room to funnel down frosty suds before challenging strangers to shuffleboard or billiards competitions. Nick’s kitchen is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday, and patrons can burn off a belly by busting a move to the sounds of live music on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
- Shuffleboard, darts, pool, cold drinks and live music. Not to mention a fun crowd of people are usually there! – Drew P., Yelp, 7/8/10
- I love this bar. Hands down, best place to go for one of their 20+ beers on tap, or the only-in-st-louis provel sticks. And where else are you going to find a bar that airs hockey, soccer, and gaelic rules football all at the same time? – mjspaeth, Citysearch
Nick's Pub keeps crowds of locals and nighttime revelers satisfied with a menu of hearty Irish-American pub fare and a menu of more than 90 beers on tap—many of which come from local brewers. Guests chow down on shepherd's pie, fish 'n' chips, or half-pound burgers as they sip craft beers. They can play friendly games of darts and pool, or they dance and laugh along to live musicians and open-mic comedy on Sunday nights. Nick's Pub is also smoke-friendly, though they don't allow cigars or scented cigarettes.
