Lizard Lounge is an intimate, inviting music club, located just north of Harvard Square at 1667 Mass Ave in Cambridge. With its subterranean location, sensuous red lighting, and welcoming staff, Lizard Lounge brings a unique vibe to performances. As the Huffington Post says, “Lizard Lounge feels like a house party without curfew.”

We feature live performances seven nights a week (cover varies), ranging from the area’s hottest local bands to touring national acts. In addition to rock and roots, you might also find opera, classical music or Balkan folk music dotting the Lounge’s diverse calendar. As ongoing series, every Monday night features the Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge hosted by George Woods, and every Sunday night, The Jeff Robinson Trio hosts the legendary Lizard Lounge Poetry Jam and Slam.

Lizard Lounge has a full bar, cocktail list, and 30 brews on tap. Our dinner menu is available every night until midnight. And talk about a great place for a party! The Lounge is available for private get-togethers from 20 – 100, from offbeat to swank. Please email parties@lizardloungeclub.com for details.

Lizard Lounge is a 21+ club.

Sun – Weds:  1am
