Boston's bar scene is diverse as the city's population. With a variety of sports bars, restaurant bars, trendy bars and historic bars there's a bar in Boston that's right for you.
Pop in for a drink at one of Boston's historic bars like like Warren Tavern or Doyle's where you'll find locals lining the bar and filling the tables enjoying good beer as well as good classic bar food. Hang around as the night wears on and the crowds increase in number and decrease in age turning casual spots into neighborhood watering holes that show their Boston roots.
For those who prefer their bar to be a bit more trendy, Boston has its share of speakeasy destinations that draw a crow. Wink & Nod, Drink and Backbar, are the slightly hidden hot spots channeling the showmanship of the 1980's movie, Cocktail, with a modern twist.
Baseball fans should not miss out of a peek onto the field at Bleacher Bar. Sitting under Fenway Park's bleachers this is the only bar in Boston that offers an on-field view.
But there's just one Boston bar that lets you sit under the stars and take in the waterfront while lounging on comfy lawn furniture and that's Legal Harborside's floor 3. Long lines often wrap around the building and the atmosphere here makes it worth the wait.
