Though the décor is a throwback to the Prohibition era, Charlie’s on Main is more than a sleek hideaway for a quick tipple off the grid. Charlie’s includes three parts—restaurant, underground speakeasy and a bi-level event space. It’s the sibling to Chef Dave Heide’s Fitchburg-based Liliana’s and is named after his son. The classy joint also oozes with mystique thanks to local drafts, spirited cocktails and a secret passageway to the basement lounge cloaked by a bookshelf. Time for another round! charliesmainevent.com.
