If you're a local, your Mom or older brother probably went to Nottingham's. Maybe you did back in the 1990s. Maybe you already do. This is where Columbia lives.
If you've never been it's time to check out this classic neighborhood bar. The Cheers analogy is overused, but it's kinda true here; Nottingham's knows the locals, their kids, and what's going on at school. But new faces are welcome and it'll be just a few minutes before you're one of the crowd too.
The menu is delicious and unpretentious — think hot crab pretzels, burgers, or quesadillas — and Happy Hour offers generous deals. The patio gets packed on nice days and there's live music every Saturday.
This is a great night out near The Gramercy at Town Center. Check Nottingham's site for hours, menus, and event schedules.
