Central Square Tips (6)

ManRay: If you're in the mood for something different...

ManRay Nightclub is the home of New England's underground scene, catering to a variety of alternative cultures. They are open Wednesday through Saturday. Each night is a different theme - Goth on Wed., Campus on Thu, Fantasy Fetish on Fri., and Liquid on Sat. Music depends on the night, check their website for particulars...

If you go on Fri, keep in mind that it is a fetish night and that most people do dress up (or more often than not, down) for it. You also get a $5 discount off the cover charge if you're in appropriate attire for the night

Dress Code Dress code is enforced, especially on Wed. and Fri. Wear black as last resort. Thu. & Sat. aren't quite as strict, so your typical club garb might do.

Central Square: 2 new-ish bars

Two great bars have opened in Central Square in the past couple of years that make it hipper than ever without turning it into an annoying Davis Square 'scene' - RIVER GODS on River Street is fantastic. The Irish owner is a total powerhouse and darling and she's got some mad decorating sense. They have some cool music themes - preview a new album in its entirety on Tuesday nights, Dj-ing a couple of nights a week. Their food used to be top-notch but seems to be a little reduced in quality. And their beer prices are still pretty good even though they went up a bit.

THE ENORMOUS ROOM above CENTRAL KITCHEN on Mass. Ave. is great, if trying a little hard. This guy PJ spins there on Thursday nights (maybe still?) - it's got a very loungey feel, which is not common in Boston, where the Irish pub aesthetic dominates. The food is good, a bit on the precious side, but nicely done. Very very small space so impossible to get into late on a sat or sun night but great on weekdays.

The Middle East: The Middle East

The Middle East has grown from restaurant with belly-dancing to THE rock club in the Boston area. The restaurant is still there, but most people go for the music. They have three stages:
.
Upstairs is an intimate venue for lesser-known acts.
.
The ground floor has the restaurant with free entertainment, usually in the folk genre.
.
Downstairs has the big stage where better-known regional bands play.
.
All three floors have their own bar.
.
The Middle East is a great place to see a band and it's right next to TT The Bear's Place, my favorite spot to see music.
.
Take the Red Line to the Central Square stop, (or Bus #'s: 1,47,70,64,83,91) walk two blocks towards boston. The Middle East is on right at corner of Mass Ave and Brookline St.
.

Dress Code Come as you are.

TT The Bear's Place: TT The Bear's Place

TT The Bear's Place (http://www.ttthebears.com):

Great spot to catch up and coming local bands. Mostly rock, but sometimes folk, surf or what-have-you.

Take the Red Line MBTA train to Central stop. Walk two blocks down Massachusetts Ave (street numbers going down) and then turn right onto Brookline Street. T.T.'s is on the left at 10 Brookline Street.
