Nice local performance music venue, tight-knit community. Reasonably-priced food service during shows and supports local emerging artists. The seating is always really packed in, so it makes getting around and sitting a bit tight.

A long time Harvard Square venue but my first visit. A Christmas ensemble that was refreshing and intimate (only seats 100). Well worth a visit - and during the week easy to get in.

Excellent small venue. About 16 tables for 4, great food and drinks, nice sound. We saw Glen Dickson and his band perform here. Loved it!

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
