Don't listen to negative reviews! GREAT dive bar! – The people who are slamming this place have no idea what they're talking about. I don't know what they were expective, but TC's is THE epitome of a dive bar. It's a blue collar bar where you can get a beer & talk sports. EVERY time I go to Boston, I make it a point to have a few at TC's.
Get this....I'm a Yankee fan...from New Jersey...and I had a ball just talking sports with the staff. They are NOT rude. Last trip to Boston, I was there three nights in a row....and they remembered me. I ended up talking to the bartender & the doorman. It was good fun...the drinks are cheap. They have a good selection of video games & pinball if that's your thing.
Listen...this place is EXACTLY what you want if you're into dive bars. If you want a bar where they're going to hold your hand & make you feel like a special, unique snowflake......go somewhere else. If you want a a no-nonsense, working man's bar where you can catch the game & talk some sports over a High Life.....TC's is your place.
OVOID AT ALL COST – This place is a straight dump staff is very rude and not helpful. You would think since its such a dirty nasty dump it would offset it with some sort of drink specials but NO full price for everything. AVOID THIS BAR AT ALL COST. Bukowski"s which is up the street is a much better choice.
Avoid this place. – This place is a dump. Went there with girlfriend a few months ago, and one guy kept looking at me. Went to bathroom and he followed me and was checking me out. Went for a smoke outside, and he tried to come on to me, offering me 420 at his place around the corner. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Back Bay student hangout rich in dive-bar color and cheap beer. – The Scene
While TC's is the unofficial Berklee College of Music bar, don't expect a quiet bunch of classical musicians. Rather, heaps of students and older regulars pile into the dozen or so tables to drink some of the cheapest beer in town. The jukebox is chock full of classic rock (prepare to learn the entire Aerosmith catalog), and when the bar's crowded, expect to shout to be heard.
The bar makes up for its woeful beer selection--there are only two beers on tap, and one is Pabst Blue Ribbon--with a surprisingly vast wall of liquors. Besides said jukebox, patrons busy themselves by watching strategically placed TVs (always tuned to area sports teams), playing classic video games or reading the bumper stickers that line the bar ("Tipping is not a city in China"). Hungry boozehounds have to settle for bags of chips (the Chex Mix comes highly recommended).
This is a phenominal neighborhood bar. Spirited crowd is in attendence. Bar staff is great. Prices are reasonable and it's a great alternative to the stuffy full of themselves places in the Back Bay. Great place to hang with friends without being run over by euros spending daddy's money.
some weird looking people – but thats part of the charm. the barkeeps are witty,doormen nice, owner great, and some guy named john davis should be on howard stern. no pretense here, its also a good place to bring a crowd to.
