The Middle East is one of Boston's prime live-music venues for worthwhile local and touring indie acts, and the epicenter of nightlife in Cambridge's Central Square. It's really two clubs and two restaurants in one place. Big names in indie rock and hip-hop perform downstairs, while under-the-radar bands build their fan base upstairs. The Corner restaurant has a surprisingly good menu of Middle Eastern staples, such as falafel and couscous platters (there's also nightly entertainment; a belly dancer performs on Sundays and Wednesdays). And ZuZu, a chill hangout with a menu of lighter fare (the pupu platters are $23 and generous enough for two), hosts the most discerning of Boston's many music fans and a bumping soul dance party on Saturdays.—updated by Jon Marcus

Open Sundays through Wednesdays 11 am to midnight, Thursdays through Saturdays 11 am to 1 am.
