“They were definitely acting couple-y,” eye witness Jahti Anderson told Celebuzz. “They were drinking beers and mostly standing and talking near the bar,” Anderson added.
“They stayed around two to three hours and Nina left before Liam, and as she was leaving they gave each other a good night kiss. The kisses were on the lips publicly outside of the bar… and it was three sensual kisses on the lips.”
"Nina was sitting on his lap and they were staring into each other's eyes while talking," Danielle Blair told People.
"She spent the whole time only talking to him."
Both have split from their longtime partners in the past year.
Last September, Hemsworth and Cyrus called it quits after 15 months of engagement. While Miley seemed to take her heartbreak into her hit song "Wrecking Ball," the breakup seems to have settled as their past history.
"I just believe that when a chapter is done, you have to close it and start that new one," Miley Cyrus told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview last November. "That's kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn't really been focused on that."
The blonde starlet added, "I want to be really clear and determined with everything that I'm doing in my life right now, and I have been. I keep saying I'm the happiest I've ever been and that's not even a dig, that's just me because I really am genuinely happy finally with myself. I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are. I've never been able to just be alone -- and I'm obsessed with being alone and hearing my thoughts."
Dobrev split from "Vampire" co-star Ian Somerhalder last May after their famed three-year romance.
The off-screen exes joked about their history at the People's Choice Awards in January.
"We started dating in real life," said Ian, followed by Nina, "And then we broke up in real life."
"And yet our characters are still dating on the show," he added.
"It's a good thing it's not awkward!" Nina said as the two pretended to look uncomfortable, drawing the crowd's laughter.
"It's a good thing we have chemistry!"
