Nowhere is a basement dive bar on 14th Street that’s been open for decades. Most nights, it’s a casual, low-key neighborhood spot with a bear-ish crowd - but it also hosts recurring events like Double-Headed Disco, or “Fire In The Hole” (for gingers and ginger enthusiasts). No matter when you come here, it never feels too sceney - no one is judging you when you walk in the door, and if you want somewhere to have a conversation with someone, there are plenty of hidden spots and booths you can find to do so. This is a good spot to kick off your night out, or use as an escape after work.
