This delightfully dive-y Central Square haunt offers everything from bring-your-ax blues jams to singer-songwriter open mics. A well-stocked jukebox fills in during quieter moments at the bar, which draws a diverse clientele ranging from twentysomethings to grizzled barflies. The one Cantab constant throughout is high-quality musicianship and an undeniably unpretentious vibe.
