Brick and Mortar is a dark, speakeasy-style bar in Central Square. They have a small menu of decent bar bites (if duck fries are your thing, you’ll love the ones here with melted gruyere) but the drinks are the reason you should come here. Walk through the unmarked door next to Central Kitchen and head upstairs to one of the coolest spots to grab a cocktail in Cambridge.
