    Before 1959

    226 State was home to some very unique businesses. As far as we can remember, here are a few: The Tiger Lounge, Stanley’s Bar, Jillians Deli & Tap Room (pictured below).

    And... Now

    Walk in and feel like you’ve stepped into a time capsule. Nick’s, with its old fashioned booths, starving artist prints and dim light coupled with the smell of made-from-scratch meals makes us one of the more unique places in town.
