If you tire of the slightly higher end drinking establishments on the heavily trafficked Mass Ave strip, then venture a few blocks southeast and amble into the Lockerbie Pub. There's plenty of seating, billiards, and cold bottled beer. At the bar, a feisty bartender will be attending to a gaggle of talkative barflies whiling away the afternoon or evening spinning colorful yarns. There's a kitchen in back churning out greasy eats for when hunger calls. Big plate-glass windows let you watch the world go by out front as you enjoy a pint with the regulars.

Please keep in mind that Radio Radio is a non-smoking venue.
