My friends and I spent countless Friday nights here as undergrads. The beer is cheap and cold, and nothing brings people together like a few rounds of Sink the Biz. If you're over 21, head to the Hoosier Room Upstairs. That's where the party is...More

This is fun inexpensive college bar located downtown. Very poplar place so you may need to wait to get in. There are two levels and several different areas that each have a different "feel".

This was a great place to pregame. Looks to be a big college bar with lots of seating and TVs for watching games. Cold beer and bar food.

We went for an early dinner. Burgers were surprisingly very good; potato chips with something hot on the top were very nice. The environment is interesting, especially if like us one is not very much experienced in american pubs. Our waiter, an old lady, was...More

We visit Bloomington at least once a year and returned to Nick's for a second time this past weekend. Its a fun place with lots of activity and noise. Our server was excellent (Becka) and the Salmon was very good!
