Deep Ellum

477 Cambridge St, Allston, MA
617.787.2337   |  website
  • Neighborhood: Allston-Brighton
  • Hours: Daily 11:30 am-Midnight
There’s an undeniable geekiness to the Deep Ellum aesthetic. Accoutrements like the vintage ceiling fans, retro TV specials, and signature steer skull sometimes come off a little strong, clearly placing this watering hole in a league of its own. But like most geeks, the fine folks at Ellum know their shit. Sipping on your favorite pilsner and munching on a plate of gorgonzola fries on the back patio with a group of friends is like dying and going to Allston paradise.
Insider's Tip: Go for the well-mixed, old-school gin cocktails like the Ramos Gin Fizz.
