HORRIBLE 'Craft' beer bar.....
I was really excited about this place. Had this great vision that it would have a ton of craft beer and be a real find. Unfortunately, not so much the case. If you ask for what they have on tap it's probably not much different than Applebeers (lots of Budweiser, Coors... the exotic was maybe Stella and an IPA that was at least moderately off the beaten track). So-so service. This place is CASH ONLY and they are not open about it (small sign somewhere in the window maybe). Also, the ATM happened to be broken the night we were there. Just a disaster all around. There are better pubs in Boston.
One of the top Irish bars in Cambridge, always good for a warm smile and a cold pint.. The Scene This hidden gem, located just around the corner from the Central Square T stop, provides young Cambridge residents with an upbeat and congenial hangout. The atmosphere is decidedly Irish, with an endless amount of authentic knickknacks and a modern Irish/British soundtrack. The door's 21-plus policy keeps the undergraduate crowd away, so expect a laid-back pack of casually dressed 20- and 30-somethings.
The Draw Other than drinking, there isn't a whole lot to do in the main front room, which is fine with the bar's many regulars. A smaller side room contains the requisite pool table, dart board and TV, but it gets pretty crowded (and smoky) at night. Friendly bartenders, many sporting thick brogues, pour more than a dozen beers on tap, including several hard-to-find varieties like Bellhaven and Carlsberg. A small kitchen churns out hearty burgers and greasy fries until 9pm.
The Field is perfect.
This pub helped me survive for at least two years. It's dark, dank, relaxing, anonymous, and beautiful. If it were not logically, legally, and physically impossible, I would actually marry the establishment. No human being can claim themselves a resident of Boston or Cambridge without spending at least 400 hours in this place.
