  • Go see Session Americana during one of their residencies
  • Most intimate commercial shows in the city (via Scoville)
  • best live music residencies and rotating taps!
  • Quoth the Mayor: "Seeing a show [here is] ... kind of like seeing a show at somebody's basement. The connection with the music is better than almost any venue in the city."
  • Probably one of the best spots to catch live music in Cambridge/Boston. Get the fried chicken meal! So good!
  • One of Boston's most intimate rooms, worth getting to early and grabbing a table up front.
  • Open mic poetry gopd vibe
  • Live music venue without a glam side
  • Great intimate club oriental rugs candle light. Terrific sound
  • Awesome hole-in-the wall venue, inexpensive drinks and great bands. What more could you ask for!
  • Favorite Winter Activity in Cambridge: Getting cozy with a glass of scotch & some friends in the intimate Lizard Lounge basement while talented local (and national) musicians perform for you. Perfect!
  • Most awesome biker bar in New England. Taste of the southwest in the northeast. Thanks to David and Steve for the dance. ;)
  • Sunday nights at 8 is poetry slam. Well worth your time. Get there early for seating!
  • Its immediately obvious that the popular club, although serving a tempting variety of food and a long, gem-studded beer list, is all about the music.
  • Dudes at the door could lighten up a bit. Seeing music here used to be a delight, sans pretension.
  • Amazing residencies and theme nights (open mic, poetry night) during the week, and usually great bills on weekends. Great beer selection (club is 21+) & food from Cambridge Common restaurant upstairs.
  • Go See Margaret Glaspy-her voice is like buttah! I believe she'll be there Tuesdays
  • Poetry night
