A holdout in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, Machine is an old-school subterranean club with a good-size dance floor. Thursday is karaoke night, and the second Saturday of every month is Dyke Night. Upstairs, the space once known as the Ramrod (tel 617/266-2986) has shed its reputation as a hard-core leather bar but has its own entertainment calendar.
1254 Boylston St (at Ipswich St.).
