Happy Swallow
Rte. 135 just east of Rte. 126

You gotta love a place where all the chairs are bolted to the floor to keep the patrons from throwing them. -- Adam Gaffin

You gotta love a place that answers the phone with "swallow."

A classic old-time bar straight out of the Charles Bukowski barfly mold. Full of atmosphere and characters. Cheap beer ($1.50 drafts!) and live music, with no cover, often very good blues bands, on weekends. Not for upscale types looking for a good martini or an extensive wine list, but don't be scared away otherwise.

This is Framingham's own Blues Alley, with the Chicken Bone a stone's throw away, and people walking back and forth to catch sets by the bands at both places on a Saturday night.
