Best jukebox: Club Charles

With more bars installing digital streaming jukeboxes, it’s worth appreciating this brightly lit Rock-Ola machine. Like a cranky record store manager, it has better taste than you, but the machine won’t make you feel bad. On a recent visit, the 100-disc player featured full-length albums by David Bowie, The Replacements, Dolly Parton and the Four Tops. There are local stars, too, like Matmos, Lower Dens and Ultra Naté. A dollar gets you two plays, and $5 means 15 songs, so get comfortable.

1724 N. Charles St., Station North, 410-727-8815, clubcharles.us
