Kick off patio season with a free bar pizza on a Cambridge roof deck

When patio season comes back around after months of Boston’s notorious winter weather, locals don’t have to be enticed with freebies to get back outside. But, hey — we’d never say no to free pizza.

That’s just what’s in store for the much-anticipated relaunch of a Harvard Square restaurant’s roof deck. Brato at The Sinclair, a culinary partnership between The Sinclair music venue and Brighton’s Brato Brewhouse + Kitchen, will reopen its roof deck on Wednesday, April 6. To celebrate the long-awaited return of the patio, which hasn’t been open since before the initial COVID-19 shutdown, Brato is dishing up 50 free bar pizzas per night from April 13 through 16.


South Shore-style bar pies are the signature menu item at Brato at The Sinclair, a counter-service eatery attached to the acclaimed club. Ten-inch pan pizzas are a primo pre-show dinner option: Quick-cooking and easy to love, you can order and pay your bill from a bartender or via QR code from your phone. Efforts are also in the works to eventually enable ordering food from inside the music venue.

For now, though, enjoy these crispy-good, greasy pizzas at the restaurant or out on the roof deck. Brato at The Sinclair opens at 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, and for the first week of roof deck season, the first 50 parties can try a pie for free (limit one pizza per party; first-come, first-served).

Do you really need another excuse to get your patio season on? You don’t, but here’s one anyway: Brato is also offering a rooftop-opening week giveaway for a chance to win two tickets to any available show at The Sinclair or sister venues Roadrunner or Royale (i.e., no sold-out shows), plus a $100 gift card for food at Brato at The Sinclair or to Brato Brewhouse. 

Editor’s note: The date of this event has changed to April 13-16 due to the weather.
