    The Beer club is fun! Bar snacks are good but the variety of beers is why this is a great place for a night out.

    Beers are too expensive. Nothing below $8 except for Narragansett and PBR. Do they think they're in New York?

    Not bad. Good beer menu. Just not sure what it has to do with Bukowski.

    Still has the same great beer selection as always but seems lifeless and sterile post-renovations. There is the Hobo special though

    The burgers are on the small side; the buffalo chicken sandwich is just the right amount of spicy. Great (and massive!) beer list.

    The remodel has caused this place to lose its appeal. It was very disorganized and hard to get a waiter's attention even if you've been seated.

    A little too close to reopening. Quite rough on both service and execution.

    What's not to love about a bar named after a poet who did some of his best work while sloshed? Named to honor Charles Bukowski, has an awe-inspiring beer menu and is famous for its burgers. Read more

    The larger of the two Bukowskis, situated in hipster haven Inman Square amongst some of the best restaurants in the Northeast, the music is also loud and brash. Cash-only.

    Just another pretentious Cambridge bar.
    Boston.comDecember 12, 2012
    A bars that's just the right kind of dark, perfect for day-drinking, though not the first place you’d take your mother or girlfriend. Food items include a White Trash Cheese Dip & chicken and waffles. Read more

    Cash only - but worth the beer list. Why not join the Dead Author's Club? Ask about the "dollar" burger weekdays.

    Cool Place.. But, the beer is really not that good and it is overpriced!
  • MarqueeBoston E.
    The weekday burger special is awesome, especially because their burgers are really delicious! Also, spin the beer wheel as often as possible. You can't lose.

    Get a mug. Drink 130+ bottles and subsequently you get to drink from a personalized 24 oz mug for the price of a pint (with a nominal surcharge) .
