NYC hound here.
So, I will be in Cambridge Wed-Fri next week with a dear friend. I'll be working during the day and early evening...but that leaves apres 9pm for fun!!!
We are: two sophisticated ladies who like swanky (not overpriced) bars and irish pubs. One of us is single, the other not. We like champagne, whiskey, and jazz music.
So, where do we go? I don't mind taking a short cab ride from my hotel in Harvard Square, but if there's anything good within walking distance, we'd go there too.
