Club Passim – folk music in Boston’s Harvard Square

Club Passim is a great place to see a folk music concert in Boston. I’ve been there several times and they have both well-known and lesser-known folk acts. If you want to perform, every Tuesday is Open Mic night. If you want to see a show, check out the calendar and buy tickets in advance.

In addition to paying for tickets, you should expect to buy dinner if you sit at a table. If you sit in one of the chairs along the wall I don’t think there’s any pressure to buy dinner, but I’m not sure. I’m not sure because I always have dinner at Club Passim – the club is connected to a unique pizza place. Give one of these interesting pizzas a try. I usually get the Thai style pizza, but the other ones I’ve tried have been good too.

To get to Club Passim, get on the T and take the Red Line to Harvard Square T stop. If you exit via Church Street entrance, walk one block down Church Street past Harvard Square Theater to Palmer Street on left. Club Passim is in the basement just around the corner on the left.

If you exit via Harvard Square main entrance, cross Massachusetts Ave. to Harvard Coop building. Stay left by newsstand on Brattle Street to first right (Palmer Street) which is 200 feet from the corner. Turn right and walk one block. Club Passim is on the right in the basement just before you reach Church Street.
