If the disco ball doesn’t tip you off that this isn’t an average sports bar, Tuesday night’s drag bingo might. Nellie’s is a straight-friendly gay bar with 12 plasma TVs, a rooftop deck, weeknight Beat the Clock Happy Hour (bottled beers, Miller Lite, and house vodka drinks $1 from 5 to 6, $2 from 6 to 7, $3 from 7 to 8), and board games for those less interested in the on-screen action. Beer on tap includes Peroni, Bass, and Nellie’s own brew; the menu is a hybrid of classic bar fare and impressive Venezuelan specialties. Try the corn arepas with shredded beef and queso blanco.
