Overview
More
If people-watching is on your list of things to do, Mike’s Place is one of those rare venues where you can rub elbows with artists, musicians, ski-bums, foresters, professionals and more. With something for everyone, Mike’s features locally brewed organic ales from Nelson Brewing Company alongside international standards on-tap or in bottles. An English-style pub that is warm and welcoming to locals and road-weary travellers alike, Mike’s is tiered into three sections, HD big-screen televisions running the latest match, game or ski film while our pool tables see a constant rotation of players; there isn’t a bad seat in the house.

Great place to stop in for a drink. Several of the beers that were on tap were from local breweries. The décor is worth the visit alone. The staff was very pleasant, but don’t be surprised if you see a mouse run by on the...More

This is the Nelson hangout. It's always busy -- a great place to meet people. And if it's a bit too much for you, you can always wander down to the beautiful and much quieter Library Lounge, also in the Hume Hotel.

This pub is an Olde style pub that I'm sure looks similar to its appearance in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The food menu has lots of options and the beer choice is quite diverse. Service was pretty good too. Seems like a great...More

We stayed up stairs last week and stopped in to the pub for a drink or two. A great place, super friendly staff, great atmosphere. I was surprised how busy it was for a Wednesday evening, the place was going off!

Good food. Great atmosphere. Place still has that "funny" smell to it... the carpet should be replaced. Best bartenders in town: personable and efficient.

Love Mike's place for a beer. Food is mediocre but gets better the more beer you drink - wish there was a bit more 'love' put into it. restaurant is good for the family. Staff are super - always great with the kids.
