West Side Lounge

1680 Mass Ave.
Boston, MA, 02138, United States
TEL: (617) 441-5566

Reasonably priced New American cuisine and inventive cocktails make West Side Lounge a popular choice for both Sunday brunch and late night dining. Located just north of Harvard Square, this neighborhood bistro has a narrow, candlelit interior with a sleek wooden bar, plush banquettes, and eclectic background music played at just the right volume, still allowing for easy conversation. While dishes like the steak frites and sesame-encrusted tuna receive high marks from diners, the lounge’s biggest draw is the selection of handcrafted cocktails, including unexpected seasonal options. The French pear martini, made with house-infused pear vodka, is always a favorite.

Insider Tip:

During autumn, make sure to try the sparkling fall sangria, infused with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg for a flavor that anticipates the holiday season.
