The underground Lizard Lounge doubles as a rock and jazz venue. The big drawcard is the Sunday-night poetry slam, featuring music by the jazzy Jeff Robinson Trio. Also popular are the Monday open-mike challenge and regular appearances by local favorite Club d'Elf. The bar stocks an excellent list of New England beers, which are complemented by the sweet-potato fries.
Located a quarter-mile north of Cambridge Common (the park), below Cambridge Common (the restaurant).
