Middle East Ambiance
Probably one of the best known music venues in Cambridge, The Middle East is also a sit-down restaurant/bar, so you can have dinner and drinks before heading downstairs to check out the live music.
It is home to two family-style restaurants with full service bars and Zuzu, a restaurant that doubles as a music venue.
The place is big, with three distinct venues (Zuzu, Corner, and Downstairs respectively) which means there is room for a lot of range – from acoustic guitar to electronic and anything and everything in between.
Many of the spaces are available as art galleries, serving the many types of people in Cambridge, from students to professionals.
Middle East Price
Admission is all over the place. Some shows are free, others cost up to $20 but most fall somewhere between $5 and $10.
