Passim is a small venue that makes it feel like a house concert. It's a bit cozy when full, but remember that's what it is. We've been twice to hear Mary Fahl and the acoustics are great. It helps that the singer is awesome. Our one complaint is that the website is not up to date with respect to what... More

The seating is cramped, but the atmosphere is friendly (hey, it's a folk club!) and the music great. If you're into this kind of music, this is one of the best known (and historically significant) singer-songwriter/folk music performance spaces in the country. Right in the heart of Harvard Square. Lots to see and do before and after the shows. Beer... More

Club Passim is a great place to hear music of all kinds. We went to hear Mike Block and Clay Ross (Pride of America Duo) and were blown away by their performance. Veggie Planet has moved and they haven’t set up another kitchen yet, but the beer selection was great. This place is comfortable and for people who actually want... More

Club Passim is a small venue to see live acoostic music. It seats around 125 customers in an intimate way without feeling cramped. The sound is terrific. The audiences are enthusiastic. The musicians appear to genuinely enjoy performing there. It is easy to get to. There used to be a restaurant sharing the space. Currently one can buy alcoholic and... More

Gotta get a chance to visit passim on a regular basis - great great talent! I wish the sound folks would pay careful attention to not letting it get too loud for such a small place in their enthusiasm - last three shows have been too loud - maybe they need to work that out better with the bands to...

As an overseas visitor into town I had a great night here. Had a lovely snack and food, listened to some wonderful music (Anne Heaton) and met some amazing people who took me under their wing. Club Passim had been recommended to me by someone form home and Id have no hesitation in recommending it too. Great value and a... More

Passim was a staple of my music life while living in Boston. They not only provide consistent quality music for their audiences, but they also provide musicians with the support they need to learn and grow in a welcoming community. I cannot thank them enough for the many opportunities they provided me with. Go to Passim! It is your chance... More

Saw my favorite artist there and absolutely LOVED it! Super small venue so the show is imitate, can get a little crowded with a sold out show but so worth it. Its a veggie food joint so we didn't eat but did indulge in the wine ;)

We saw the Dustbowl Revival - a westcoast group making their first national tour. Incredible experience. We reserved table 15, front right table near the stage and had the best time! The band was amazing, drawing the whole crown in. The band's newest addition, Liz Beebe was fantastic. Service from the Veggie Planet folks was very good, attentive with refills... More
