The pencil factory? It’s across the street. The bar that shares its name was actually the Miltonian Social Club—a longshoremen’s hangout during the neighborhood’s shipbuilding heyday. Now a local haunt for artists and musicians, this exposed-brick watering hole offers a solid selection of whiskey and Scotch and 24 beers on tap, including $5 Radeberger pilsners.
