To understand the special charm of Nick’s you have to understand a bit about the neighborhood. Located off Kelly Square on Millbury St. in Worcester, it is tucked unobtrusively along a what can best be described as the drunken corpse of a once vibrant Polish-American neighborhood.
While inside lives a charming old world replica complete with small stiff wooden benches which feel almost akin to a church pew. The dark laquored wooden tables and low light contrast nicely with the bright and stunning copper ceilings.
With some outstanding homebrews and a killer spicy mustard to go with the authentic eastern European fare; The live music is interesting as is everything about this bar. Nick’s delivers on a dream, a step outside of time and place. Let’s hope the rest of Millbury St. follows Nick’s rather than Vice-Versa.
