Rock, folk, and jazz music draws a lively crowd to the Lizard Lounge, a snug space that’s a favorite with local acts who want to get up close and personal with the audience. The basement space adds to the sense that you wandered into the neighbors’ rec room just as their incredibly talented friends started jamming. Food is available until 1am on weekends, midnight on weekdays. Sunday is poetry night; Monday is open-mic night.
