Hidden in the rear of the Tom Quick Inn, one must search to find the “Red Light” in order to find the town’s best-kept secret. With floor-to-ceiling history written on every wall, the Varsity Room Speakeasy lives up to the expectations one would have for a roaring 20s, prohibition-era bar.
Once frequented in the mid-century by Ivy League higher-ups, one will see the historic flags of schools such as Harvard, Yale, Boston College, and more. When ordering a smokey concoction from the bartender, one can feel the history of the room. Open mid-week and occasionally on weekends, check the website for updates as to when the Red Light is on.
