Here's how it goes down inside: an old guy in a broad-brimmed cap clutches a highball of Jameson, while drinking next to him is a crowd of 20-somethings who respect his presence, even as they crank the music under dark chandelier-ish lighting and commiserate in the beer garden out back.

Looking Glass is Petworth's neighborhood bar, a welcome-one, welcome-all dive with a great jukebox, DJs on weekends and first-rate pub grub (mmm, burgers). It’s a block south of the Metro station.
