After salivating at the menu online, I stopped by here for lunch to find its one of those places that does brunch on Sunday, I hate that crap. If I want brunch, I’ll go to a brunch place. Having said that, my food was pretty good as were the others I was with. That sadly was the highlight of my visit. The host was super friendly, but the server was slightly rude, slow and put off by our orders. The draft list was pretty pathetic, I was expecting some major heavy hitters for such a lofty RB ranking. The focus was more on national beers, albeit decent, that you can get anywhere, vs having more locals of Night shift, Trillium, Jack’s Abby and the rest. This place can be skipped.
Saw mention of this as being a perfect vampire hang out. That is a great discription for me. Starting with the velvet curtain and the dog at the front that you walk through. The tap list is no debate, it was long and solid. But I personally wasnt a fan of the ambiance. Everyone wasnt really dress up but it felt lke you should be. It just had a strange feel. Maybe it was too hipster or something but it just wasnt really my type of place. As a beer geek it was worth looking for the tap list.
The draft list is possibly second to none in Boston, and ultimately, it is what matters the most but I can’t say I was overly fond of the vibe on my visit. It must be said however that this was a late Saturday night. The good news is they were serving food even then. It was however very dark, very packed with a youngish crowd and very loud. The service managed to remain courteous, efficient and professional in spite of the crowd.
This is a dark little bar in Cambridge with a undeniable hipster vibe, although I saw a lot of young professionals while I was there. The bar staff was friendly and helpful. The selection was pretty decent, but the prices were a bit higher than normal.
This place is the real deal. Music is a bit loud (damn hipsters). Haven’t had the food, but their draft list is tremendous. Lots of local things and several usual and hard-to-find things too. Its a must stop and one of the best beer bars I’ve ever been to. Only con is that its a little expensive, but all the stuff around here is.
Décor un peu gothique et sombre, avec exposition d’art. Service impeccable et prix correct. Le choix de bière, autant en fût qu’en bouteille, est impressionnant. Nous n’avons pas mangé, mais le mac’n’cheese de la table voisine semblait succulent.
First stop while visitng Boston. Opened at 11am and I was there at 11:01 for brunch on a Saturday. Ordered an egg and bacon sandwich with sweet potato hash. Very good. Lots of bottles and drafts alike...all craft of course. Bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. Had three beers on draft (all locals). Highly recommend Lord Hobo. Also home of a Zwanze Day.
