Party Earth Joshua Tree Review

The Scene

Joshua Tree is a sports and pitcher-pounding paradise in Boston's Allston neighborhood. Discover this great sports bar/club/restaurant at Party Earth.

A wayward bro walking the streets in hipster-heavy Allston can rejoice thanks to the sports and pitcher-pounding paradise that is Joshua Tree.

When the game’s on, college kids covered in athletic gear down pints and keep their eyes fixed on the flat-screens running above the island bar, while larger groups venture over to long leather banquettes or into the dining area, where additional TVs and projector screens dot the white tiled walls.

The Southwestern-inspired menu keeps the armchair quarterbacks satisfied when the nearly two dozen taps can’t, though anyone not in the mood for Grande Burritos or half-pound classic burgers will also find less gut-busting fare like goat cheese salads and veggie wraps.

The pair of pop-a-shot games down past the fireplace get solid use during the week, while chill groups of friends drop in for regular quiz nights on Wednesdays. Things heat up Thursdays through Saturdays, however, when heavily gelled frat boys and sorority sisters in glittery dresses crash the downstairs dance floor and DJs spin Top 40 hits till closing.

The same crowd shuffles in Sunday mornings to assuage aching heads with an all-you-can-eat buffet brunch, and stays until the afternoon’s televised game starts the cycle all over again.

Appealing to all the different moods of a sports fanatic, Joshua Tree is a fun, habit-forming hangout.

Tip from Lucas:

Want to make the switch from beer to harder alcohol but don’t want to dish out the extra cash? Joshua Tree has a permanent $5 special on house margaritas. And for thrifty beer nuts, Coors Light is a measly $2.

  • Crowd

    Sports fans, college kids looking to let loose, fraternity posses, and flirty sorority girls, early 20s to early 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Several TVs and projection screens show all major sports. Soundtrack of rock classics on weeknights upstairs. Trivia on Wednesdays. DJ spins Top 40 downstairs Thursday through Saturday nights from around 10pm. Pair of Hoop Fever pop-a-shot basketball games. Free Wi-Fi.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Southwestern fare including quesadillas and burritos in super-sized portions, as well as large burgers, nachos, ahi tuna tostadas, and chili-rubbed tuna. À la carte breakfast on Saturdays. All-you-can-eat brunch on Sundays.

  • Prices

    All-you-can-eat-brunch buffet $14, breakfast $6–$8, appetizers $8–$11, salads $7–$13, sandwiches/burgers $10–$14, entrées $11–$16. Beer $3.50–$6+, wine $6–$9/glass or $22–35/bottle, cocktails $5–$9.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: baggy jeans, baseball hats, college/sports apparel, tank tops, t-shirts. Dressier/sexier attire for the Friday and Saturday dance crowd.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night to party it up on the downstairs dance floor, or Sunday mornings to ease the hangover with mountains of brunch food.

  • Close By

    Tavern in the Square Allston (161 Brighton Avenue) is another local sports hub and serves a rival all-you-can-eat brunch on Sundays.

Still the spot!

Drinks are priced right, the games always on, and the patrons are a blast to mingle with--what more do you want in a bar? Check out Privie, (http://www.privielife.com/), Boston's own nightlife app for user pics and posts! Privie is also a great way getting reduced cover at most of Boston's best venues!

The line on a saturday night is huge, and once you get into the main bar you have to wait in another huge line to get a ticket for downstairs, which is a more clubby scene. There crowd was made up of mostly college kids.
