An alternative to the college-town vibe of Massachusetts Street, Lawrences 23rd Street Roadhouse is a friendly neighborhood watering hole. A few beers may provide the liquid courage to hit the huge wooden dance floor; a few more may inspire a spin on the mechanical bull. Or, if you prefer quiet people watching, playing pool and drinking beer, the Roadhouse is your spot. On certain days, select draws and whiskeys are discounted, as are powerful libations like Long Island Iced Teas and Sex on the Beach shots. Rock and country music are the clubs sonic staples, but a DJ spins top 40 on Saturdays.
