The only thing better than sitting outside on a quiet, tree-lined side street at this peace-and-love neighborhood institution? Catching a local band at the adjacent Red Line Tap with a cold Raspberry Queef (yes, that’s the name of a drink) in hand.
With the recent closing of two of the best bars in the city, if not THE WORLD, this 'hood took a big hit when Underbar and Hungry Brain shuttered their doors late last year. This, however, is good news for local music venue/restaurant Beat Kitchen, which quietly continues to coast under-the-radar as one of the city’s most reliable nightspots.
This kick-ass music venue/record store/restaurant is easily one of the coolest places in the city, if not the country. And offbeat events like the Pancakes & Booze art shows, trips to Hawks games in the party bus, and balls-out live band karaoke only add to its reach.
