Nicky Rottens Bar & Burger Jnt
Save Money : There is no cover charge, mostly-burger menu items hover below $10, and many are half price at happy hour.
When to Go : This is very much a "slash," as in bar/restaurant. At lunch, it feels like a restauarnt. After dark, it's the bar everyone stops into on their way to a club.
Where to Sit : The room upstairs in the back looks off-limits, but it's not. Mosey up for a cool bird's-eye view of the bar crowd below. A bonus: There's a fireplace with a flat-screen, too.
Fun Fact : Nick the owner is a veteran of the Gaslamp scene, and has held management positions at Greystone and Osetra in the past.
