The Enormous Room

While college kids and out-of-towners wait in line downtown for their overpriced martinis and bland playlists, hipsters hit Central Square for a much more appealing kind of scene. The Enormous Room is actually anything but: long, narrow, and brick-walled, full of couches and pillows. It’s reminiscent of a harem (the last harem we visited, anyway), only with tasty food and DJs spinning some of the best music in town, from new wave to hip-hop to IDM. Get there early, or prepare to cool your heels outside awhile.
