On the music venue: it's one of my favorites in Boston. They have a very nice mezzanine, if sitting down for live music is your thing you can show up when doors open to get 1 of the 4 tables on the mezz with a great view. $4 beers. Really good lighting and sound system. The restaurant has a nice roof deck and good, but a little pricey food.

A great venue in Harvard Square. Saw a sold-out Breakbot show here, and despite being sold-out, it was not overcrowded. The air was fresh & cool, which is key for an inside venue.

Very rude staff. From the people taking id's to the people at the bar. Almost ruined the good show. Wont be going again. Two stars for being a clean place. if you can avoid everyone who works there, its not a bad.

Your security searches are brutal, no other place in or around Boston or any other event venue is as ineffective and as inconvenient as yours. A few bad apples sneak in a flask or something and your response is to punish everyone. Nice sound system and stage, but it won't make up for having to spend half the night waiting to go through security as you have to be searched every time you step out for a breath of air. Drinks from the balcony constantly being spilled or dropped onto the main floor also. Not a very good setup.

One of my favorite venues in the Boston area. Moderately sized, great sound, and excellent beer selection. Would definitely recommend anyone to check out this venue!

My favorite concert venue in the city. Good size, clean, reasonable prices (both tickets and drinks). The sound is almost always really good here too. Very few bad spots for a stage view too.

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).
