Radegast might get a little crowded sometimes, and it might draw a lot of tourists, undergrads, and interns - but we still don’t hate it. If you ever need to drink with a big group in the daytime, it’s a good spot to know about. Inside, you’ll find a of a big picnic tables where you can hang out and drink an obscure European beer, and if anyone gets hungry, they serve things like sausages, burgers, and pretzels. They also host a lot of live music, so check the schedule if that’s what you’re looking for.
