Inspired by iconic New York City pre-prohibition establishments, Saloon channels all sorts of old-timey cool – from its entrance (look for it underneath the blinking Davis Square Theatre sign) to its cocktail list (of-the-era whiskey-based drinks).
The stylish, underground dining room, located beneath sister restaurant Foundry on Elm in the heart of Davis Square, is all exposed brick and dark wood with cushy red leather banquettes lining the walls - the perfect clandestine spot for a bite to eat and a stiff drink.
The pared down menu, which is designed to be shared, combines historic American fare with contemporary favorites. The bar program focuses on brown liquors and local beers with a drink list that’s built around the classics.
