As DC’s gay nightlife has gravitated from Dupont and Logan circles to U Street, Nellie’s has become an anchor. The bar is unpretentious, making it a rarity among gay bars in town. Wednesday trivia night draws big crowds of beer-swilling, corn-dog-eating contestants vying for the unofficial honor of most outlandish team name. And the rooftop has become a prime destination in warmer months for happy hours, weekend benders, and the pre-dance crowd. Another rarity in Washington: The crowd is mixed, with gays and lesbians, whites and non-whites, and the hot and not-so-much all mingling easily.
