This casual Belmont tavern's days as a neighborhood jazz bar are long over, and games now fill the basement performance space. Sad indeed, but the food is still excellent, the cocktails are spot-on, and the bar still carries one of the most carefully curated draft selections in town. Avoid the tippy outdoor tables and grab a booth by the window.

Perfect Patron: Nonsmokers who aren't cool enough for Aalto Lounge or rowdy enough for Belmont's Inn; anyone who loves shuffleboard. (BW)

HAPPY HOUR 5-7 PM NIGHTLY: $3 DRAFT PINTS, $5 FOOD SPECIALS.
