#GMVeats restaurant of the week:

Worthen House Café

141 Worthen Street, Lowell, MA 01852


LOCATION: The Worthen House was established in 1898 and has served as a tavern ever since. The building, a traditional mid-nineteenth century vernacular survivor from Lowell’s Mill City development, was built in 1834. Much of our present interior remains, most notably the belt-linked fan system, which is the only existing set in its original building in the country.

DESCRIPTION: The Worthen is a notable fixture in Lowell nightlife; a cozy, welcoming local bar and restaurant, serving delicious food and fine spirits seven days a week. Everyone is invited to come experience its rich history, learn about its past and create new stories in a space once occupied by literary figures Edgar Allen Poe and Jack Kerouac. Its welcoming atmosphere makes the Worthen an excellent spot to share a drink or a meal with friends, host a milestone event or experience live entertainment performed by local artists.
