great space! – Always a great place for fun times. Drinks and dancing--friendly service and good crowd. Highly rec.
service sucks. Not worth the cover – I went to this place one night and as I was closing my tab I noticed some random Corona on my tab. I asked the bartender about it and he said that my girlfriend ordered it. I knew that she didn't because I was with her the whole night and she also hates Corona's. I asked them to explain what the girl looked like that ordered it. The bartender described some random girl that didn't sound anything like my girlfriend then he said your girlfriend is...some name that I didn't know. I told them that the girl that ordered that drink wasn't my girlfriend and they had made a mistake. They wouldn't accept it and kept trying to convince me that it was my girlfriend, as if I didn't know what my girlfriend of 3 years looks like or could even confuse her name with the random name that the bartender had said. They wouldn't take off the charge. If your going to go here I suggest not opening a tab because the staff don't know how to do there jobs and they won't admit to any mistakes.
Want a dance party and really good drinks – This place is under new management since the middle of 2007, and things have been changing in Enormous ways. There drink menu is to die for, my favorite is the "God in small pieces" it's a pomagranite margarita and so tasty with salt. Just to name a few more the "Geisha's Whisper, Bad Babysitter, and the Quick Knockdown, I've had them all and always left feeling pretty nice. Get there early if you want to sit but don't worry because there are djs 7 nights a week getting the dance party started. It's the new hot spot if you are looking to lounge around, be romantic, or just not sitting on a bar stool. You can sit on nice comfy couches or kick back and relax on a big pillow. I like this place because the atmosphere is chill and the service is great, I have never been without a drink and thats important when hanging out at the bar.
Fun Night out – One of the best places in Cambridge, Hands Down... The food is excellent, but the real draw is the relaxed environment and amazing DJ's. Everytime my friends and I go here, we leave happy, and buzzed! Definitelly a great place to start and finish your night out. The only drawback is finding yourself without a seat on a busy night, so come early!
Cool place, food's not bad – The reason to come is for the cool room and lounge. The food used to be better, but it's not bad and it's reasonably priced. For pure middle eastern dining there are better places, but it's still a fun place to visit now and then.
Lucky Find – Ive been searching for a place like this in Cambridge since my recent move from NYC. The Enormous Room or as I call it the Elephant Room is an awesome place to go with a large group. The DJ was extremely accommodating, he responded well to our requests, thanks you rock. The bartenders were also friendly. In Addition, I was rather impressed by their tequila selection and warm decor. I might soon become a regular.
Cambridge's ultimate chill-out room for the tragically hip. – The Scene
This Central Square lounge should have a sign outside: "You are about to enter the land of hipness." Of course, being so hip, it doesn't have any sign at all. To find it, look above Central Kitchen, the upscale neighborhood restaurant that opened this bar upstairs. There you'll find beautiful people on couches and leather chairs soaking up the subtly Moroccan decor and chilling to trippy, ironic electronica.
This is the lounge Central Square has been dying for, both as an antidote to area rock clubs and as a place to go before or after livelier entertainment. Nothing is too complicated here, from the menu of small bites, to the simple drink list of wines, single malt scotches and sipping tequilas. Of course, creating that vibe is a calculated affair that any refugee from London or New York nightlife would appreciate.
Mediocre goes downhill – I've been to E.R. several times. In the past, I was pretty happy with the food, although it was a little pricey and the service varied wildly. On a recent visit I discovered they had changed their menu -- the platters are gone, replaced with $8 per plate tapas. I arrived about 6pm and was one of two tables in the place. The music was so loud the waitress and I couldn't hear each other, but she wouldn't turn it down. I was waiting for a friend. I ordered a drink, and when the drink hadn't arrived 15 minutes later because the waitress was talking on her cell phone, I decided to wait for my friend downstairs. I won't be going back.
Cool, chillin' place – At narrow room framed with brick walls and hardwood floors dotted with Morroccan rags an d sleek glass tables, The Enormous Room provides a very cool atmosphere to chill at. Sofas and comfy chairs line the multilevel room which ends at a narrow bar and hidden back kitchen. Live DJ plays a groovin' dig on certain days. Coolest bar by far in Central Square.
Great music, Chill spot... – I live in Central Sq. and have watched this place blow up from an unknown empty spot to trendy hip spot (by Boston standards). Place does get packed on DJ nights (W-Sat.) so get there before 9:30 PM if you want seating. Crowd is mixed bag-Harvard/MIT kids, hipsters, pretty folks, y. professionals-very Cambridge. Service could be better. Lack of staffing-only 3 waitresses & 1 bartender work on packed nights. Music is the draw for me though. It is the ONLY venue in Boston where I can hear quality music MIXED PROPERLY by a DJ-Hip-hop/electroclash/breaks/downtempo-none of that fade-in, fade-out crap (Sat. w/DJ M.Estrada are suggested). E-room now accepts credit cards and is open till 2 AM on Fri./Sat-CitySearch is outdated. Much better for night owls (me). If you like to sing along to standard Boston bar music-BonJovis "Living on a Prayer" or DefLeopards "Pour Some Sugar..-you wont like it here.
