Downtown’s tapped. Beacon Hill’s a dead zone.
May we suggest taking the road less traveled to Cambridge?
Find your way to Inman Square’s newest haunt, Trina’s Starlite Lounge, which opens today. A team of low-key bar vets led by Joshua Childs (Silvertone) flipped and modified the old Abbey Lounge into a relaxed burger and cocktail joint.
They’ve added a kitchen and brought in consulting chef Greg Reeves from Green Street to cook up a throwback menu (burgers, dogs, chili, beer) with treats like fried chicken and waffles and pepperoni rolls. A lounge and bar sits up front under twinkling lights; feel free to toast the present with a six-pack of Miller High Life ponies or honor the past with an Abbey Cocktail.
It might make all of the difference.
Trina’s Starlite Lounge, 3 Beacon Street, Inman Square, Somerville (617-576-0006 or trinastarlitelounge.com).
