We’re a short, four minute walk from the Malden Center stop on the MBTA Orange Line (20 minute ride from downtown Boston) and Haverhill Commuter Rail (10 minute ride from North Station).

If the parking lot surrounding our building is full, overflow parking is available one block away at Callahan Park (the lot next to Pisa Pizza) near the intersection of Charles Street and Pearl Street.


Our hours are:

Monday-Wednesday: 3pm-9pm
Thursday: 3pm-10pm

The taproom is a 21+ venue.  Only children 12 & under are permitted with a supervised adult.

Please refrain from bringing children in after 7pm on Friday and Saturday.  Well behaved dogs are allowed on our patio when open (weather permitting) but must be kept leashed and under the owner’s control at all times.
