Best Neighborhood/Dive Bar: Nomad

Best Neighborhood/Dive Bar: Nomad
PHOTO BY John Anderson

Tucked away in a strip center in the Windsor Park neighborhood, this new kid on the block is the coolest new hangout in the area. Nomad specializes in cocktails, beers, and wines from around the world, as well as coffee. The service is friendly and fast, and it's never too crowded to find a table. The patio sports as many tables as inside. And even on the hottest of summer days, this dog-friendly bar keeps the patio cool with misters and plenty of shade. Stop by on Sunday for all-day happy hour – Bloody Marys to die for and $3 mimosas. Get there early at 11am for all-you-can-eat brunch.

1213 Corona, 512/628-4288,
