Sixth Engine: Cold Drinks in a Historic Building Near 77 H
Set inside a building on Mass Ave that once housed Metropolitan Hook and Ladder #1 and Fire Engine Company #6, Sixth Engine has dedicated itself to a different kind of community service: satisfying patrons with contemporary American cuisine, craft beer, and signature cocktails.
Despite the fact that the building is well over 100 years old, it still knows how to command attention. The tile floors, huge windows, and exposed brick walls exude quality American craftsmanship that the kitchen staff tries to reflect in their menu. If the reviews from food critics and social media users are any indication, you should not miss the chocolate chip flapjacks for brunch, the bacon cheeseburger at lunch, and the pork chop entree for dinner.
Regulars say this place is good for groups or a casual date night, and perhaps best of all, it’s just moments from 77 H!
