If you’ve lived in Boston long enough, you know Deep Ellum as that place in Allston that finally gave us somewhere to drink craft beers that aren’t advertised on TV. Thankfully, we have a lot more options now, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook this small bar with a killer patio. And if you’ve only ever been there for the beer, you should know that they also serve brunch and have an entire late-night menu dedicated to those times when you want to keep drinking but also want some chicken wings.
Deep Ellum is permanently closed.
