The first impression you get as you walk in through the doors of The People's Republik is that it may be a political or military den of sorts, thanks to its name and decor. On the contrary, this bar will surprise you with casual ambiance that has made it popular among tourists and natives of Cambridge. Beers offered here are a favorite of the regulars, but you can also take your pick from cocktails, scotch, tequilas, bourbon and whiskeys. Accompany your drink with a quesadilla, fish and chips, sandwiches or a steak.
For almost a decade, this Cambridge club has been one of the better jazz venues in town. Ride the glass elevator of Doubletree Guest Suites Hotel up to a room with 180-person capacity. The low stage, small tables and glass windows overlooking the Charles River create an intimate setting. The "Supper Club" ticket combines dinner and the show. Group rates and catering are available for jazz functions. The club has a full service bar. Check website for more.
Mainly a venue for rock 'n' roll acts, Paradise Rock Club draws a partying crowd in their late 20s and early 30s. If you do not want to dance, comfortable couches upstairs allow pleasant observation of all the goings-on downstairs. One of the best places in Boston to see live music, the club hosts pop, alternative and better-known local acts almost nightly. Prominent acts who have made appearances include Bare Naked Ladies, Flaming Lips, the Wallflowers, Goo Goo Dolls, and Jack Johnson.
Brendan Behan Pub is small, intimate and dark, and the atmosphere is as Irish as you can get without boarding a plane. Live Irish music 'seisiuns' entertain the loyal patrons, many of whom have a Dublin lilt to their speech as they down their pints of Guinness. A few bowls of chips line the bar, but you cannot buy food here. As you drink, admire the Irish wall decor, make new friends and maybe even dance a jig.
If you are looking for quality music in an intimate atmosphere, this Cambridge spot fits the bill. Live music is on tap nightly, as are a variety of microbrews and a full bar. Local bands are a mainstay here, but national stars have stopped by to give performances as well.
