Saloon takes you back to the good old days

15 Mar

It’s hidden so you might miss it. But when you find the light globe announcing Saloon in small red letters a couple doors down from its sister bar/restaurant Foundry on Elm, go down the flight of stairs and prepare to be amazed.

It’s a bar unlike any other in the area, spacious, stylish and boasting brown drinks and suave cocktails from bygone days. Bring an appetite and dress nice because once you’re there, you’ll wish you had.

With unique cocktails and braised pork bellies, Saloon wined and dined patrons at its official grand opening last Wednesday in Davis Square.

First timers admitted it was a little hard to find; regulars called it a hidden gem that they hope remains hidden before it becomes just another overcrowded Somerville haunt.

“I definitely like it,” said Jacqueline Houton of Cambridge. “It’s like an old man’s library—in a good way.”
