Storied rock clubs, bare-bones bars, and raucous DJ lounges are dotted along the Cambridge stretch of this major thoroughfare, which runs from Dorchester all the way to Lexington. Several of the best live music venues in the area can be found here. Party the night away on a live music crawl from the mighty Middle East in Central Square to tiny Toad in Porter Square. From the best nightclubs in Boston to the best record stores in Boston, music is, indeed, what we do. More of a visual art kind of person? You might want to browse through our Boston museum guide.
