    Brings the mod, psychedelic & northern soul sounds back home to Allston Rock City where they belong for this monthly Wednesday night party. (Wednesday, November 10th at 10:30 p.m)

    When you're almost out of money in life, bring the last of it you have here, drink it away and burn the last dollar in the Mens' room.

    2.50 for a generous glass of PBR, the owner is a gentlemen, and dancing will happen if you come with a group who is willing to dance.

    Go there on a Saturday to listen to some kickass DJs and check out an interesting crowd.

    Stay away if you have any dignity left. You usually don't at last call but do try.

    Go to The Model Cafe. Play Addams Family pinball. When you lose take 2 coasters and put them under the front legs. Repeat until you do better.

    One time I held the bathroom door closed so my roommate could shit.

    Loud music, incessant dancing, and a bevy of hipsters - I should hate The Model. But, it's all amazingly infectious. Basically, I've never had a bad time at The Model.

    Ask for a Summer Snatch if you want something stronger than a long island.

    Good place to start a band. We formed here, and now you can listen to our "Primetime" album in the jukebox!

    Women's bathroom: cold faucet is the hot water.

  • The Ad Club

    The crowd comes after the Sil closes. Get there before that line. On Tuesdays our friend Sam Nevin of Razormaze DJ's some Metal. Come w/ friends

    Steve Seabury, author of Mosh Potatoes heavy metal cookbook, says: This is a cool bar to go to at the end of the night. Pool table, cheap pints of beer, and a juke box that screams METAL!!! Read more

    They require two forms of ID to get in the bar if you have an out of state ID. A debt card will do.

    It's a circus show. -- With that said, go see it.

    Mirza C. · August 9, 2012
  • Tessa N.

    very cheap beer. VERY hipster friendly. sometimes a line outside so get there early.

    Tessa N. · February 26, 2012
  • Ty S.

    Hipster heaven, beards and beanies

    Arrive before 11:30 or you'll be suffering in the most arbitrary line. Remember it's a cash bar and tipping well drastically cuts the time you hold an empty glass.

    Caleb H. · November 7, 2011
  • Jonathan C.

    This place is cash only, but they have an ATM inside. Get here early to avoid the line outside. Great, eclectic crowd and good tunes. Dance parties may spontaneously erupt. Good times!
