wicked good reviews

Awesome tavern with a great location. Service is good and food quality is great. My girlfriend is vegan and I’m not so we both enjoyed this location. She had the veggie patty with no bun. I had the turkey burger. We both shared the veggie potstickers and chili. All of the food is great. Also a great selection of local and regional brews. We were both satisfied.

Justin V. review from Yelp

Very quirky venue with amazing decor . Food was great with a fantastic variety of beers. A very off-the-beaten-track bar which makes it more endearing.

Mug Club

Official Rules and Shit

  • Customer has 6 months from date started to complete the entire card.
  • Every beer on the card must be paid for by the card holder.
  • Only 1 person may drink from the card- In other words the completion of the card cannot be a collaboration between multiple people.
  • Once the card is complete the mug may only be used by the person who has completed the card. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
  • Bukowski Tavern reserves the right to deny new mug club member use of mug (which may be based on barternder/servers discretion)

  • Mug club members may opt to be a part of Bukowski Tavern’s email list to receive updates and periodic newsletters of Tavern events.
  • Mugs are not transferable between the two Bukowski locations. Mug holders in Cambridge do not have mug privileges in the Back Bay location and vice versa.
  • Bukowski Tavern is not responsible for any excessive weight gain, marriage annulments, black eyes, one night stands, or spur of the moment tribal tattoo arm bands that one may incur throughout the process of completing your mug.
  • Although completing a mug is an awesome accomplishment, it does not shoot said customer into the ranks of infinite coolness that are currently occupied by the bar staff at Bukowski Tavern.
  • Being a mug holder is a privilege not a right; please respect this establishment and the staff might just do the same.
  • If your mug breaks while it is in Bukowski Tavern, it will be replaced (no charge)
  • Management reserves the right to deny certain beers to be served in mugs (based on alcohol content, style, price, etc…)
