Best Neighborhood / Dive Bar

TIE: Nomad; Liberty

It's all about the patio. Whether it's the misted and lit-by-gas-station Nomad or the expansive sea of picnic tables at Liberty, we like to do our inebriating outside. Heat be damned. Escape from the increasingly crowded East Sixth Street strip or just avoid Downtown altogether. Either way, you're getting drunk.
