The Middle East: "Dancing on the tables" Top 5 Page for this destination Cambridge Nightlife Tip by sarahandgareth
Cambridge Nightlife: 28 reviews and 16 photos
The Middle East is a Cambridge legend - an alternative music club (let's be honest: if you're not hip to what's happening on the music scene, you won't have heard of 90% of the bands on the calendar) and restaurant that specialises in, well, fare from the Middle East. They first opened their kitchen doors way back in 1970, and the music followed in 1975.
Don't worry too much about who's playing: just tell yourself that it you're very cool, and it will all be okay!
The food, by the way, is fabulous: the dishes are mostly Lebanese, and there are many bean dishes. We love Maklouta, and the pumpkin kibby is excellent, too. It's all very fresh, and very funky.
Dress Code: Relaxed, pleased, relaxed, although some of the patrons of ZuZu, the classier restaurant in the Middle East 'complex' do the all-in-black Eurotrash thing.
Address: 472/480 Massachusetts Ave
Directions: The club/restaurant is in Central Square, just a little beyond the T stop.
