If there's ever been somewhere with an accidental dress code, it's Neil's Bahr. The new downtown bar/nerd haven is a geek's paradise, complete with matching décor that welcomes all lovers of smart-guy culture. Magic The Gathering and Super NES fanatics need not worry; impromptu tournaments are announced from time to time via the bar's Facebook page, boasting prizes like Microcenter gift cards. Everything here is an homage to geek culture.
