606 Maiden, Austin, 78705, 512/453-4349
Everything you’re thinking about a place called Nasty’s is dead on. Founded in 1985, it prides itself on the following amenities: Rugby carnage across six TVs, campus stragglers nursing a couple after classes, pool tables, and DJ Mel’s long-running, weekly hip-hop dance party – a four-hour jam that’s guaranteed to tranquilize any case of the Mondays. Fifty-two beers on tap, and too many liquors to list, which is not something every campus-area hole in the wall can boast. No kids.
