Classic Old School, Neighborhood Pub

Come, Feel Comfortable, Everyone's A Friend

Somerville, MA

Welcome to the Thirsty Scholar Pub

Historic Bar & Restaurant, a Stones Through From Harvard


If you are looking for a friendly, old school Boston pub to come and enjoy good company, awesome food and a great selection of beer and cocktails, you've come to the right place!  At the Thirsty Scholar Pub we pride ourselves on preserving the traditional old New England pub feel, where the likes of Hemingway, Emerson and Shakespeare line the mahogany shelves and our locally sourced dishes and drinks cover our tables where strangers become friends.

Located in Somerville MA, directly behind the Harvard dorms in Cambridge, our deep Boston history can immediately be felt through our warm and welcoming atmosphere.  Enjoy not only great food and drink, but plenty of other fun activities such as trivia night, live music as well as our popular vintage board games and, of course, sports which are always showing on one of our many flat screen TVs.


Our goal is to make our guests feel at home, as if they never left their living room.
