The bar at Nel Centro is technically a hotel bar—it's inside the Hotel Modera—but it's well lit, well appointed, and not typically overrun by lonely looking business trippers. Ignore the fancy dining room and head for the big square bar, where glasses of house wine will set you back a reasonable $7—or better yet, time your visit for their generous happy hour, when wine and wells are $5, drafts are $4, and the food menu includes $3 french fries, $7 pizza, and $6 sandwiches.
