Lockdown attempts to set itself apart from the city’s other metal bars with a vague prison theme, burgers with names like “Arson” and “Hawaii 5.0,” and a “virtual venue” concept, meaning live concert DVDs are played on plasma screens. This latter idea sounds silly on paper, but it’s actually kind of brilliant. The music you love with none of the fuss, plus craft beer and a place to sit down.
