A really great space for a show. I saw Delta Spirit here and the set up is really great, it feels like a mini House of Blues. I'd say capacity is similar to Paradise--but there aren't any visual obstructions, the ceilings are higher, the stage feels more like a legit stage, and the bar is a bit out of the way. It's all GA which is nice. The sound was great. Cocktails were tasty, there was a really long beer list (including local beers on tap), and I've had good food at the restaurant here before, too (Brussels Sprouts, Mac and Cheese being the memorable dishes). Perfect for a bite before seeing a show. The location is super convenient--close the the Harvard Square stop on the red line (right near the Border Cafe).

Amazing food, drinks, and a great venue for music. My band played here and we were treated better than any venue I have ever been to. I wish every place was like this. Give them all your business and/or money.

You should probably come here and spend all your money on delicious cocktails and magical brussels sprouts. Just saying.

The Sinclair Restaurant has amazing food, a great drinklist, and friendly staff. Brunch is also top notch- and in the summer the patio is a great place to hang. The music venue side of The Sinclair is also a great place to see live music in an intimate setting. Sight lines are great, drink selection is plentiful and prices are reasonable. The staff here is also very friendly. As for the shows, the lineup features great national touring acts and also great local bands.

Great bar with solid mixed drink menu. Also good apps and a nice roof deck on the second floor. They sometimes play atrocious movies on the screens behind the bar, great conversation piece.

Great concert venue, was there to see Spiritual Rez. We'll balanced sound. Large enough general admission pit, but also more relaxed options if you want to go upstairs to the balconies.

Went to see Surfer Blood & We are Scientists here this past week. The venue size is perfect in my opinion. It accommodates to both front row rockers and intimate listeners using the balcony area. I'd love to see another band play here. Keep them coming!
