ISO Quiet place for a winter drink, Harvard-Porter-Davis Squares

VivreManger | Nov 29, 201404:54 AM     28

To meet a friend for a quiet chat I seek a bar in the Cambridge-Somerville, tri-square area, that offers, ideally, mellow quiet, good wines and draught beers, as well as mulled cider and wine.

Not every element on the list is necessary, but quiet is.

The bar at the Sheraton Commander is a good place for a chat, but I don't remember the choice of beverages as particularly noteworthy. Almost nobody does mulled cider and wine these days so I am not optimistic about that detail, but seek and ye shall find.

I do not need fancy cocktails, a hard-surfaced room packed with noisy drinkers, or the latest scene, just someplace quiet to have a drink on a cold winter afternoon.
