Harvard Square Hotspots
The Sinclair and Liberal Servings

Those street musicians by the T stop won’t have to wander far if they ever hit the big time: slated to open this fall on Church Street is The Sinclair, a live-music venue that will be operated by Bowery Boston, an extension of the NYC-based Bowery Presents agency. Bowery Boston currently books all the acts at Royale in the Theater District; this new Cambridge project will bring acts across the river and into a space with a state-of-the-art audio system and a vibe modeled on Brooklyn’s beloved Music Hall of Williamsburg. With 10,000 square feet (that’s about a 525-person capacity), it will rival other area music clubs in size. Acts not ready for major throngs can try to book a show at another new venue currently in the works, Liberal Servings, slated for a spot just around the corner on Brattle Street. Beehive co-owner Jack Bardy is seeking to open a 300-plus-person dinner and live-jazz spot there in 2013.
