The Rusty Nail is a dive bar for newbies. Yeah, it lurks in a dark spot under the I-90 overpass, but it’s also flanked by loft complexes that look downright trendy. The twinkling white lights are kinda cute. Come on in, have a beer or a scotch (there's a long list) and kick back.
Inside, it’s dark and small; Led Zeppelin is on the radio; a couple of guys are watching the game (likely an Alabama game – this is an Crimson Tide bar), and maybe a couple of other guys are setting up to play music in the corner. Outside, look for food trucks Wednesday through Saturday nights.
