Deep Ellum is a craft beer oasis in the heart of Allston Rat City—a major college neighborhood. While you’ll find plenty of the newly-21 crowd milling about, Deep Ellum manages to remain relatively exempt from the co-ed influx. (Key word: relatively.) Still, the menu of classic cocktails and an impressive bottle list—which balances near and far breweries—has everything you’d want in an unlikely craft beer bar in the heart of frat land.

What to drink
It's almost blasphemous to recommend something off the bottle list when there's so many excellent drafts, but if you haven't had local Bantam Wunderkind cider, it's worth the diversion.
Deep Ellum is connected to its sister restaurant, Lone Star, a taco bar. With a kitchen that's open until 1:30 a.m. (later than pretty much anything else in Boston), Lone Star is a worthy bookend to an evening of beer drinking.
