Massachusetts: Parlor Sports
> Located: Somerville
According to one Yelper, “When it comes to staples of a good sports bar (TVs, beer, food) Parlor excels. There are plenty of TVs located around the bar and nary a bad seat in the house. A huge plus is that the bartenders actually appear to be sports fans and are incredibly responsive to requests for specific games.” Both NFL and college contests are shown, and the Iowa State Alumni of Boston usually gather here to watch Cyclones games.
