    A bit aggressive at the door on a recent 18+ night, but still my favorite Boston venue.

    If you're from out of state, make sure you bring another form of ID (other than your driver's license). They won't accept it and won't let you drink alcohol, even though it says you're waaay over 21+

    Nice venue with different levels so you can easily see the stage and performance. Coat check ($2) is a nice touch.

    Boston's best music venue - intimate small club feel, easy enough to move around for drinks / bathroom (even during sold out shows)

    Service is so disappointing. From the hostess to the bartender, everyone has a huge attitude. It's a shame because the food&drink is decent.

    Buy tickets from their box-office so you don't have to pay for Ticketmaster fees.

    Great new venue for anal shows, and a small but exclusive collection of whiskies and bourbon in the main bar. I'd go back again for sure!

    This live music venue/restaurant has helped to revive Harvard Square’s nightlife scene. The space can seat 500, but has an intimate feel. Best of all, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Read more

    Cool place. Stage really high, allowing even short people in the back a view. Nice location, too, right off Harvard Square. Will definitely return if an act of interest plays.

    Drink a Kentucky Luau: bourbon with hints of cinnamon, pineapple, and best of all, a floral scent that will leave you craving for more. Try it on the new roof deck. Read more

    The food here really is great but they undercook their poached eggs - ask for another minute or so and they're perfect!

    An intimate setting, crowded under the wrong circumstances, but still enticing. Sound is a little hollow, but once you're in you will realize why. Really cool regardless.
