The Hawthorne may look more like your living room than a nightspot, but the charm of the decor at this lounge is what sets it apart from it peers; endearing itself to regulars who are not patrons of the Hotel, but simply Boston residents who love the vibe, drinks and bar food. The Hawthorne is a lounge that boasts a stunning 18-seat bar, a communal high-top table, and two comfortable, more casual seating areas complete with cushioned chairs to make you feel at home. Cocktails are the focus of this hotel bar and are constantly changing to serve what's in season and trendy. No worries, the Hawthorne still mixes the classics, ensuring you'll enjoy your favorite even if it is not found on the menu. Food is simple, yet enticing with menu items that include fancy versions of bar delights like grilled cheese and pretzels.
