Club Passim is a terrific venue for live music. It is small enough to have an intimate feel between the artist(s) and audience. It is also big enough to have a lively atmosphere. The staff is excellent at doing their job. The menu is limited. Yet the food is excellent.

If you're looking for yet another reason to venture into Harvard Square...this is it! Club Passim has just begun their Live Music Brunch and it's fabulous. This club has been around since 1958. Known for their folk music and wide selection of contemporary artists in that genre. The brunch was relaxing and mellow, perfect for a lazy weekend. Wonderful brunch... More

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!

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.

Thank Donna S
