Remember when Cambridge’s Kendall Square was a ghost town after 5 pm? Now, neither do we. Partly thanks to the vibrant startup culture, longtime stalwarts like Flat Top Johnny’s and Cambridge Brewing Company have been joined by relative newcomers serving all sorts of libations: vividly described vino at Belly Wine Bar, quirky pitcher drinks at Southern-inspired nouveau-dive State Park, and classy but creative cocktails (beet-infused mezcal?) at West Bridge. Many options, one plaza—just watch your step between stops.
