The second-floor lounge is the headliner at this beloved Harvard Square restaurant and nightspot, in business since 1954. It draws a young crowd for brewskis and scorpion bowls—rum, fruit juice, and fun served with long straws and perfect for sharing (single portions are available). The first floor is a retro Chinese-American restaurant all day, and the third floor has a small dance floor but is better known as the home of the Comedy Studio.
