  • order a drink, it's a double.
  • When you're almost out of money in life, bring the last of it you have here, drink it away and burn the last dollar in the Mens' room.
  • Stay away if you have any dignity left. You usually don't at last call but do try.
  • Here's a tip.... avoid Fri & Sat nights AT ALL COSTS
  • great place good people fair prices
  • The Model has $2.50 PBR drafts.
  • One time I held the bathroom door closed so my roommate could shit.
  • Leave here with regrets and missing dignity. Do it!
  • Go to The Model Cafe. Play Addams Family pinball. When you lose take 2 coasters and put them under the front legs. Repeat until you do better.
  • Loud music, incessant dancing, and a bevy of hipsters - I should hate The Model. But, it's all amazingly infectious. Basically, I've never had a bad time at The Model.
  • Women's bathroom: cold faucet is the hot water.
  • Ask for a Summer Snatch if you want something stronger than a long island.
  • They require two forms of ID to get in the bar if you have an out of state ID. A debt card will do.
  • $5 Jack and (splash of) Ginger - can't hate the strong drinks
  • Good atmosphere- definitely less uncomfortable than Ellum
  • Good place to start a band. We formed here, and now you can listen to our "Primetime" album in the jukebox!
  • Brings the mod, psychedelic & northern soul sounds back home to Allston Rock City where they belong for this monthly Wednesday night party. (Wednesday, November 10th at 10:30 p.m)
  • 2.50 for a generous glass of PBR, the owner is a gentlemen, and dancing will happen if you come with a group who is willing to dance.
  • Model cafe is a super fun little place. Cash only so stop at an atm! The bartender is very friendly and provides great conversation over a beer. Around 11 it turns into a party with a dj! Recommended.
  • Standard hipster dive bar, but the drinks are cheap and the dance floor is great. Great vibes. Get weird.
