Driving

From Downtown Boston

Take Storrow Drive east past the Hatch Shell and MGH, following the signs for 28 North. Turn onto 28 North, crossing the Charles River, and continue to follow 28 for a little less than a mile and a half. Take the Washington Street exit and turn left onto Washington Street. After a few hundred feet, as you pass the post office on your right and the road begins to veer left, continue straight into the Union Square parking lot. Sanborn Court is on the right hand side of the parking lot.

From The North

Take 93 South to exit 30 (Route 38/Mystic Avenue). As the offramp splits, bear right. At the stop light at the end of the ramp, turn left onto Mystic Avenue. After 3/4 of a mile, when Foss Park is on your right, turn right onto Route 28 South. After another mile, past the Medford Street intersection and just after a Sunoco station, exit right towards Washington Street. At the stop light at the bottom of the ramp, take a right onto Washington Street. As you pass the post office on your right and the road begins to veer left, continue straight into the Union Square parking lot. Sanborn Court is on the right hand side of the parking lot.

From The South

Take 93 North to exit 28 (Route 99/Sullivan Square Somerville). At the stop light at the bottom of the ramp, turn left onto Cambridge Street, which soon becomes Washington Street. Continue on Washington Street for about 1 mile. Shortly after you go under Route 28, as you pass the post office on your right and the road begins to veer left, continue straight into the Union Square parking lot. Sanborn Court is on the right hand side of the parking lot.

From The West

Take the Mass Pike to exit 18 (Allston/Cambridge) and follow the signs towards Cambridge/Somerville. This will bring you onto Cambridge Street. After you cross the Charles River and Memorial Drive, Cambridge Street becomes River Street. Continue on River Street for about 3/4 of a mile until you arrive in Central Square. Continue straight across Mass Ave onto Prospect Street for another mile, which will take you through Inman Square and into Union Square. After the road becomes one-way and passes over some train tracks, cross Somerville Ave onto Washington Street and take your first left into the Union Square parking lot. Sanborn Court is on the right hand side of the parking lot.

Parking

Parking is available at the bar.

Additionally, there is ample metered parking nearby, most conveniently in the Union Square lot off of Washington Street, right outside the restaurant, and we will be happy to feed the meter for you.
