Neighborhoods: Kendall Square

2015 Winner: State Park

Decked in retro paneling and studied kitsch, this subterranean dive is one of the few joints in town where boozy cocktail pitchers are available alongside diverse beer and cocktail lists, offering plenty of options to wash down the high-concept takes on lowbrow comfort- and junk foods. With a pool table, pinball and shuffleboard on offer, State Park is like hanging out at your grandparents’ house circa 1985—if your grandparents were scenesters who offered you full access to their liquor cabinet.
