Idle Hands in Malden has a lot of really good beer, a comfortable tap room, and a quiet outdoor patio - that makes it a pretty good place to hang out despite being built in a parking lot. You’re not really going to find things like live music or trivia nights here, and they only even have food trucks a couple of nights a week at most. But if you just want a chill place with some beer, this is your spot, but head somewhere else if you want more of a party.
