Best of Boston

2017 Best Music Venue, Small

The Sinclair

With a cozy, intimate vibe and a who’s-who of trendy touring acts (upcoming headliners include Sonic Youth legend Thurston Moore), the Sinclair has in short order made itself the hippest place in town for a show. Expanded offerings have included emo night, as well as the occasional offbeat comedy show or Point Break Live! experience.
