Brick & Mortar (Cambridge, MA)

Finding a good bar within walking distance from work is always a welcome thing. Enter Brick and Mortar, an upstairs "speakeasy" next to Central Kitchen. The small space gets pretty busy even on weeknights.

The beer menu is pretty small since the focus is on cocktails. For a hot summer night, try tall drinks like the Red Duster Swizzle (Beefeater dry gin, Madeira, Campari, falernum, lime, and bitters). There are also classics like the ginger-y Mamie Taylor. Cocktails run about $12 and up. Brick and mortar
For me personally, though, I wish they had a bigger menu for me to try out on multiple visits!
They also serve bar food here which are pretty good, from the Deviled eggs that tasted slightly pickled.

Oyster Po'Boy
This is a pretty satisfying po'boy - the oysters are stuffed into a soft brioche roll and topped with crunchy slaw. The thin fries are quite good as well.

Brick and Mortar is certainly a good bar to have near work. It's slightly expensive but at least I know I can get some good cocktails and food after work.
