Looking for a picturesque spot to have a drink in Nevada City? Check out the veranda at the National Hotel. The historic bar is a part of the oldest running hotel in California. While we obviously think you should come stay at the Outside Inn, you can still stop in and see the bar, grab a drink and head out to the balcony or join the lively karaoke events on the weekend. Nevada City Chamber Executive Director Cathy Whittlesey says the bar “feels like Nevada City. I love the old historic feel, the veranda and views, it’s a great place to enjoy a nice beverage.” The bar is often a happening place on weekends or events (photos below compliments of the Nevada City Film Festival). The winners of the giveaway to Harmony Books are Erin Dixon, Camille, Zoey, Ingrid and Todd Lawson.
