Good times, and cheap drinks, with friendly bartenders who pour generously. The crowd ranges from regulars, to college kids, to older business men. You never know what will happen here, but it's always a fun night.


  • Your classic New England dive bar; cheap drinks, gross bathrooms, and Big Buck Hunter in the back. Pow.
  • Leave your whores at home and come in to enjoy cheap beer!
  • If you're going to vomit, please make it to the bathroom. Also, the Ms. Pac-Man machine is quarters only.
  • Really beautiful people here.
  • Dive definition. Quite small and a little too neon-bright at all times, but it's still a top pick for cheap beers near the Common. Come here after a show, and bring cash.
  • Hole-in-the-wall with cheap beer!
  • This Wisconsin boy loves The Tam! It's like drinking back home! A must!
  • Racist bartenders. Said they were "closing early" and wouldn't let my black friend back in. I guess you can't bring other races with you to the Tam. Classless.
  • PBR in bottles...nuff said
  • $3.5 Narragansett cans!
  • One of Boston's greatest dive bars. A real classic that remains unchanged over time. $3 tall boys, arcade games and questionable bathrooms.
  • Love this place. Epitome of a dive bar. And love the bartenders here.
  • Try the rohypnol!
  • Don't come here with a bachelorette party. They won't let you in! Plus this place sucks. And is cash only. And smells.
  • Don't take a shit here guys
  • 7 years in-between my visits to this bar and not a single thing has changed.
  • A Boston institution, The Tam continues to draw in both locals and tourists with their $3 tallboys and cheap arcade games.
  • Love trivia at the Tam!
  • Great dive bar. Remember when the Hub was full of these....
  • Bring cash, no cards. But, cheap beer and Buck hunter are a plus.
