Nick's English Hut
You can get much more Bloomingtony than Nick's. You can try, sure. But there's just something about walking into that almost 90-year-old dark wood-covered bar that screams, “Watch Hoosiers play basketball inside of me!” Hell, the website's official history even notes that founder/owner Nick Hrisomalos passed away the same day IU won its second NCAA basketball championship. The Hut – and don't get it twisted, this sucker is much more bigger than what comes to mind when you hear the word “hut” – is the best place in Bloomington hands down to watch Indiana play – possibly even better than Assembly Hall.
