Started going to Passim 42 years ago...great folk music, saw many artists who later became big in the 60's and 70s. Club setting has great atmosphere...you go down a few steps to get into the club. There's a patio on the side where people congregate, great place to meet for a night out. Lots of great local talent, unusual bands,... More

We heard Antje Duvekot and Alice Howe. The club was sold out. Meals and alcoholic beverages can be ordered and served. Walking space between the tables and chairs is a bit tight, but so many people were just enjoying the show! We sat at table 9 which was especially painted by Antje!

This is a gem. Wonderful to have this level of connection with the performers--very worthwhile. Food and bar service was friendly and responsive. Highly recommend it!

Tiny little music club with great live shows several nights per week. Excellent craft beer and amazing burgers, beef and bean patty options are both delish. Super friendly staff, too! Bathrooms could use a good cleaning, though...

Here the first time visiting and loved it . Would be a regular visitor if I lived close by. Folk type music was outstanding and food was very good. A bit cramped with small tables.

I returned to Club Passim after too long a time away for of Massmouth story slams and was pleasantly surprised! I didn't remember the food being all that great, or the service either, and on both of these visits my concerns were put to rest. The menu is short and interesting with good choices for pub eaters and picky/healthy ones.... More

Club Passim is a fantastic non-profit music venue, 120 or so seats, intimate and cozy. Many of the audience members sit at tables, where they can order food and drinks. The new restaurant serves mostly burgers, a couple of salads and sandwiches but great rosemary fries. The food is a little bit on the pricey side ($16 for a burger... More

Here's the place where the real deal authentic roots and Americana music shakes from the rafters night after night forever. I first went in 1979 to see the blues legends sonny terry and brownie McGee. Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Pete Seeger are among the legends who have played here when it was called club 47. But the real glory... More

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
