You want to play pool. You want to drink beer. You want to spend time with your friends without dancing awkwardly. You can’t believe someone actually was able to write an entire novel in the second person. Sure it’s not 1980’s Manhattan, but when it comes to Allston’s lights, they shine pretty bright. At least, we know they used to shine brightly on the rats that scattered behind our old apartment in the neighborhood circa age 21. But when it comes to finding Big City, we know exactly where to look.
Located right on Brighton Ave in Allston surrounded by multiple other bars and restaurants that give the area its popular reputation as a collegiate nightlife capital, Big City is one of the few places people can head to play a good game of pool. Whether you’re a true hustler or just a novice, anyone can learn to play on Big City’s multiple tables. But even if you’re concerned about your billiards game, it doesn’t take all that much skill to suck back one of Big City’s beers. In fact, the list is so lengthy you might forget about playing pool all together. Enjoy gigantic plates of nachos, quesedillas, burgers, etc. Big City has it all, and the prices are equally as satisfying as the beer selection. So the next time you’re craving a huge plate of snacks and some liquids to match, march on over to Brighton Ave. It’s not Madison Ave, but that’s a whole different city anyway.
