Deep Ellum in Waltham. Deep Ellum, one of my favorite Boston bars, now a mile away from the ROCK 92.9 Studios. Hallelujah.


Deep Ellum opened in Allston in 2007 and quickly became a go-to for me anytime I was in the neighborhood. They had the “cool craft beer list” thing down before that particular thing became a thing in bars across the city and the suburbs. And you know what else they had? Deviled eggs. I love deviled eggs. My grandmother used to serve them at family get-togethers when I was a kid. Now, I’m the one who makes a batch when it’s party time. Mine are good, but not as good as the ones at Deep Ellum.


The Allston spot, like so many others, became a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. They shut their doors on June 7, 2020. The space was taken over by an expansion of their sister restaurant, Lone Star Taco Bar. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for a bounce-back in a new location. Lost in the flutter of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations was Deep Ellum’s reopening on Moody Street in Waltham. I work on Main Street in Waltham. This, for me, was fantastic news.


Deep Ellum in Waltham: A Beloved Boston Bar in the ‘Burbs

I finally made my way down to Moody Street after my show last Friday. The space is perfect: dark wood; a long, well-stocked bar; and friendly, knowledgeable staff who know their beer and know their booze. I had a cold pint of a craft beer from Maine they had on tap. And I was overjoyed that deviled eggs are still on the menu. They were delectable. Check out Deep Ellum on Instagram for the location and hours and to get a taste of what else is on the menu. Even if you’re not in Waltham, they’re worth the field trip.
