BPT's Featured Venue: The Lizard Lounge

April 04, 2011 10:16 AM
There's a great little venue in Cambridge, Massachusetts that uses Brown Paper Tickets to ticket their events. It's called the Lizard Lounge and Rolling Stone calls it an "eclectic hot spot." It's gained a reputation as a great place to see top-notch musicians performing in an intimate setting and by intimate we mean intimate (maximum capacity is right around 100 people). But they set the mood right with low lighting and a plush, cozy, hipster-basement vibe.

They have a Poetry Night on Sundays, an open mic on Mondays and live acts throughout the rest of the week. Upcoming acts include  "Gypsy Dirge-core" band Bury Me Standing, who will be doing a 4 week residency on Thursdays in April, tickets available here. And "Morroccan-dosed dub-jazz collective" Club d'Elf, will be celebrating their CD Release with two shows on Friday, April 22. Special guests will include none other than John Medeski and other guests from their 13 year residency at the Lounge. Tickets available here.

For drinks, they boast a full bar with top notch custom cocktails like their Watermelon Margarita and the Absolut Homerun that features Absolut Boston vodka, white grape juice and a splash of ginger ale! They also have 24 beers on tap featuring a rotating selection of local microbrews and imported classics like Chimay and Guinness and a dinner menu that is available every night until midnight.

A general perusal of Yelp comments confirm that patrons love the space. Jeff S. of Nashua, NH says "...the acts are top notch, the sound is great and the crowds friendly." Travis T. of Fredricksburg, VA says "I wish I could give the Lizard Lounge 6 stars. Imagine a hip bar without the attitude. Everyone is welcome and feels at home." And the Boston Globe says, "Everybody knows that the Lizard Lounge, with its low lighting, plush Persian rugs, quality live music and laid-back vibe is one of the most soul-nourishing hangs in town."

Here's a video from the last night of Bury Me Standing's residency in October of 2010.

Feel free to visit their Brown Paper Tickets producer page to see a full list of upcoming acts or visit their website.  Next time you're in Cambridge, make it a point to seek out this hip and happening subterranean hideaway. You won 't be sorry.
