Nilla's is a new nightclub that opened a couple of weeks ago in a space that adjoins Club Rodeo at 10001 E. Kellogg. The club is a card room that has pool tables, poker, chess, backgammon, darts, dominoes and other games. It has a full kitchen that serves sandwiches and burgers that owner David Schanbacher describes as the best in town. Nilla's is open daily from 2 p.m. until close, which means they stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. but will remain open later if games are continuing. For more information, call 316-927-2775.
