The Scene

"Like any classic dive bar worth its suds, T.C.'s Lounge is a true hole in the wall, tucked away on tiny Haviland Street._x000D_

Like any classic dive bar worth its suds, T.C.’s Lounge is a true hole in the wall, tucked away on tiny Haviland Street.

Past the easily-missed doors, this narrow, split-level basement of a bar is pure kitsch, with cheesy posters, Boston memorabilia, and 1950s girlie pinups covering almost every inch of the walls and ceiling.

Front booths by the bar attract unpretentious crowds of penny-pinching young urbanites and Berklee College of Music students intent on pounding PBRs and throwing back drinks like the Oxycontin and Blackout, while blue-collar types and hard-drinking party girls make their way up the steps to the game room to cluster around classic arcade consoles or try their luck at the crane game full of sex toys.

During the week, T.C.’s is a gritty, low-key hangout for a devoted group of older regulars who gather to watch Sox games and chat over cold pints, but once the weekend hits, a young and rowdy crowd shows up ready to party.

The only true dive in downtown Boston, T.C.’s lounge is the perfect no-frills hub for patrons in the mood to have a few too many.

Tip from Lucas:

Let’s see…Buck Hunter, $10 pitchers of MGD, and posters of naked pinup girls on the ceiling – what’s not to love? It’s like dying and going to dive bar heaven here, perfect for me and the boys to start or end the night.
