Thumbs up Boston/Cambridge

For a bit of nostalgia mixed in with a red-lit backdrop go to the Delux Bar . It's located in the South End of Boston. Rather hip, but not pretentious. You'll find last year's Xmas tree still perched on the bar (it's actually been there for years!), cool record sleeves from the 50's-today decorating the walls, and the pleasant aromas of tasty kibbles emanating from the tiny kitchen that's behind the bar. This is where all the cool kats go.

For a little something darker, grittier, but with a 50's diner feel, then you must go to Charlie's Kitchen in Harvard Square, smack dab in the middle of Cambridge. Punkers, Harvard Profs, artists, and other sorts gather at this watering hole. I can guarantee you will meet someone interesting in this place. However, don't get this place confused with the place of the same name in Boston. They are worlds apart.

i'm not sure i would call it a dive bar, but the kendall cafe in kendall square is a great place to grab a beer and sometimes catch some great music... a true dive is the waltham, not too far from the delux mentioned in the last post, but worlds away... some sketchy business and interesting people abound... there is also, river gods, a good place to grab a "pint" with friends and listen to some local club and radio djs as well as local musicians play their favs, located on river street in between inman square and central square... and of course, you can't forget the middle east upstairs bar... a mecca for the local rock scene, cheap beer, eats, great music either upstairs or down and the accompanying rock star attitudes from everyone from the bartender to the door guy... or you can head around the corner to tt the bears and shoot pool, rock out, drink...
