RAZZY’S no longer attracts the kind of colorful scumbags on which it built its reputation as the quintessential slightly scary townie dump. Now it’s safe enough for young hipsters to congregate with few worries of getting into a scrape with some shattered old barfly way past his 10th Jack and Coke. But true to dive-bar form, the décor is still quaintly tacky, the drinks still cheap, and the popcorn always free — there’s even a hilariously awful karaoke night (our winner for the best in the city!). There’s also still a chance of getting your skull cracked with a Molson bottle if you use your iPhone to cheat at pub trivia nights, but that’s not a bad thing.
