Best of Boston

2016 Best Dive Bar


This stark brick joint stands out in a neighborhood being rapidly overrun by coffee shops and concept restaurants. Step inside and catch the last half of the game with neighborhood regulars, yuppies, and nine-to-fivers, who might just slay some Hall & Oates on the karaoke stage. Like the underrated bar pie, it’s a reassuring slice of old Cambridge.
