Like a Lizard

An intimate underground venue with a vibe all its own

T

he bands that play the Lizard Lounge are worthy of a big stage, but here they’re given only a rug in the middle of the room for an intimate, laid-back vibe set up by the heat-lamp-red lighting and carried on by the killer tunes, quality brews, and hip crowd. Sunday at the Lizard is poetry night and Monday is one of the best open-mic nights in town. There’s usually a small cover, but the Lizard—downstairs from Cambridge Common restaurant—makes up for it with reasonable drink prices and cheap eats served up until midnight or later. All the shows are 21+ and the place can fill up quickly, so get there early or buy a ticket ahead of time, especially when the trance-jazz collective Club d’Elf or the in-the-round gathering of songwriters known as Session Americana are on the bill. Which is a lot. Macomber

Cambridge Common—the historical site, not the restaurant—is where George Washington took command of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War on July 3, 1775.
