I love this venue! If you're looking for an intimate show, I recommend checking out Great Scott! It's so small that we were able to chat with the artists. I also like how you can just sit and watch the show too. Tickets are also quite affordable here.


This is a great tiny venue. You can either get right up front and be as close to the stage as possible, or if you prefer you can sit at some high tables towards the back and still see perfectly. Most shows are in the $10-$12 range.


This is a a fun venue, a little divey but that adds to the ambiance. The place is cash only with an ATM inside, but the trade off is that the drinks are reasonably priced for Boston. We came here on a Friday night around 10pm to check out what was playing. The door guy told us that one of the 3 bands that were supposed to play had to reschedule so the cover was reduced to $7. That was nice. There is room to dance, the staff is nice. I would certainly come back again for date night.
