ABOUT BRASS UNION:
Brass Union, an eatery and lounge experience, opened its doors in Somerville’s Union Square in June of 2014. Housed in the space that formerly inhabited Somerville’s police headquarters, Brass Union encompasses two spaces that boast two distinct – yet synergetic – concepts. In the front restaurant and bar area, Brass Union sets the stage for a New York City-style tavern reminiscent of days of yore and in the rear space there is an interactive lounge experience with a vintage tabletop video game and a shuffleboard court. Brass Union dishes out a menu of American-style small plates complemented by inventive craft cocktails that incorporate housemade syrups and sodas and there are 24 draft lines. Brass Union is located at 70 Union Square in Somerville. For more information, please call (617) 623-9211 or visit www.brassunion.com. Follow Brass Union on Facebook and Twitter.
