There are countless bars and restaurants around the city to grab a drink. Are you looking to shake things up, and venture to a new spot for brunch, an after-work drink, or just a place that’s not your couch? Read on for a few recommendations on where Dining Playbook suggests you go.
Yes, it’s an interesting name for a brewery, but haven’t you heard of the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover?” Maybe we should change that to “don’t judge a beer by its name” because Lord Hobo is the bee’s knees. Go for brunch and pair your Boom Sauce with a plate of the Steak and Eggs, and their delicious Cheddar Grits. With locations in both Woburn and Cambridge, it’s easy enough for any city dweller to get there. Try one of the 40 beers on tap in Cambridge, or head to the tap room in Woburn and sample some of the year-round, seasonals, and limited release beers.
Green Street is home of the city’s longest standing liquor license. Since they’ve been around so long, it’s no surprise that they have an award-winning cocktail menu. Take a seat at the bar and treat yourself to a burger and a craft beer, or sit down in the dining room upstairs and have a glass of wine with your dinner. Any drink you get here will be a good one, we promise.

This spot is dedicated entirely to the art of cocktails.
