Roof deck at the Baseball Tavern — Photo courtesy of Baseball TavernBostonians appreciate nothing more than baseball season. As spring transitions to summer, Boston night spots head outside. With limited exterior areas for bars to spread sideways, Boston bars look up to integrate the outdoors into their bars.
This season, Fenway Park has roof decks ideal for the baseball fan who can't get in the gates. These special bars lend themselves to a more casual, beer-loving sports fan who wants to watch the game rather than dance the night away.
Local sports legend Jerry Remy has not only made a name for himself in broadcasting, but also in the sports bar scene. With two restaurants/sports bars in two of the city's best locations (Fenway and the Seaport's Liberty Wharf building), it's no surprise that his Fenway roof deck hits a home run. A seat here on a game day ensures that you'll hear the actual roar of the ball field while watching the game on one of the many flat screens throughout the bar.
Don't fret if Remy's is too packed; local pre- and post-game hangout, the Baseball Tavern, is welcoming to Sox (and other) fans. Their roof deck not only allows guests to enjoy the outdoors while watching the big game, but comes complete with a replica of the Green Monster (Monstah' if you want to sound like a Bostonian), and the din of noise from neighboring Fenway Park. At the Baseball Tavern, you'll get the feel of Fenway without the ticket cost.
Don your sports gear and head to Fenway, skip the tickets, enjoy a few beers and catch the game above it all at one of these rooftop bars.
