Recently we took a trip to Newburyport thanks to the $10 Commuter Rail pass. This time we decided to head out west to Worcester.
First stop was Volturno Pizza which was a short walk from Union Station. It was recommended by a friend as a close lunch option. This was a big, open space and the pizza we had was very tasty, as were our cocktails.
We then headed up the street to Valentinos which is known for their bar snacks and cocktails. We were still stuffed from lunch but couldn’t pass up the Big Mac meatballs. Service was a bit slow but they were worth every bite. We were there at an off time, though, so the chef might have been on a break. We would definitely go back.
Next up was Lock 50 where we enjoyed our drinks on their art strewn patio. They had fun drinks and the patio was a fun place to hang.
Next door was the new Maddi’s. This place has a great beer list and fun cocktails. We particularly liked the options of boozy iced coffees. If you go, say hi to Alex, a good friend of Crawl in Boston!
Across the street we ventured to Whiskey On Water, featuring over 300 whiskeys. The service was basically nonexistent here, sadly. We’ve heard there are great servers here, but badly we didn’t get to see it.
We had time for one more spot and was recommended a bar about 10 minutes away. On our route, we passed a haunted house.
The Hangover Pub featured many bacon dishes and drinks. We had the candied bacon and bacon fat fries and both were delicious! We would love to go back and try more on the menu.
