In lieu of a 'second line" my pals and I paid tribute to a departed friend by enjoying his favorite venue - Club Passim. 'Twas an uplifting experience. Tasty food, and first rate live music in a very intimate setting.

Only knew of this through a friend but what a place! Saw Jordan Tice here in March, great little intimate venue. We only had a few drinks but the food looked and smelled amazing.

Nice local performance music venue, tight-knit community. Reasonably-priced food service during shows and supports local emerging artists. The seating is always really packed in, so it makes getting around and sitting a bit tight.

A long time Harvard Square venue but my first visit. A Christmas ensemble that was refreshing and intimate (only seats 100). Well worth a visit - and during the week easy to get in.
