The Saloon is a speakeasy in Davis Square that can have a very different atmosphere depending on when you go. Pop in on a weeknight and you’ll have a great place to grab a cocktail, eat some food from the small menu if you want it (we like the burger), and pretend you’re an early 20th century aristocrat contemplating your future after you’ve been cut-off from your family’s inheritance thanks to a penchant for drink and late-night carousing. Come in here on one of the nights when there’s a burlesque show at the attached Rockwell Theater and the atmosphere will be. . . a little different (and remind you why late-night carousing is so much fun).
