Located off-the-beaten-path in a historical building that most recently housed Glenville Stops, Fields West has undergone a transformation to bring residents as well as music and arts enthusiasts a refreshed venue and concept to the neighborhood. Its namesake, Fields West, borrows a page from local history paying homage to Cambridge artist Washington Allston whom the Allston community is named after. Despite suffering a fire in 2012, this hidden gem was first constructed in 1922 and maintains its structural and architectural elegance with the façade featuring arched brickwork infilled with expansive storefront windows that provide natural lighting within.
Inside, much of its original integrity remains intact from reclaimed brick walls, an original timbered ceiling, Brazilian cherry floors and robust crown molding. The space gives off an inviting and genuine warmth with its bar and low-top seating. The perfect spot for a date-night or gathering for board games with friends, Fields West boasts a menu of globally inspired small plates meant for sharing and heartier mains to appeal to all palettes and dietary limitations. Designed for imbibing, Fields West has 31 draught lines and additional offerings available by the bottle and can that are heavily rooted in being locally-sourced. Fields West offers five draught wines in addition to craft wine options by the glass and an assortment of no- or low-ABV libations.
With arts and music central to the neighborhood’s identity, Fields West will feature a collection of works by rotating local artists.
