Beer selection

Unless otherwise specified, locally-brewed beers listed here are available citywide

  1. La Grande Dame Bar

    Bearing the nickname of the orange-labeled Veuve Clicquot champagne house, this bar is the first branded venue the Reims producer has launched in the US. Views of the Liberty Hotel grand rotunda overhead are magnificent. Multiple vintages of Veuve Clicquot are menu highlights.

  2. The Oak Bar

    Exuding class from every polished wooden fiber, the Copley Plaza hotel bar exists in a sumptuous Edwardian fantasy world. Refreshingly, its patrons would just as well be seen in jeans as in Galliano. Most glasses at the bar are filled with the house’s signature martini.

    • 138 St James Ave

  3. Miracle of Science

    MIT students’ favorite watering hole boasts one of the city’s most original decorative concepts. How many bars display the day’s menu items and on-tap beers on a periodic table, serve salad dressing in a test tube, or claim Einstein as a patron saint?

    • 321 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge

    Miracle of Science
  4. Delux Café

    The kind of place that is so unique, you want to keep it a secret. The South End’s intimate Delux Café attracts a refreshing, one-of-a-kind mix of professionals, bike messengers, and gay boys and girls, all suckers for the bar’s kitschy Elvis motif, extensive on-tap beers, and perpetual broadcast of the Cartoon Network .

  5. Good Life Downtown

    A favorite after-work spot for the Financial District’s young executives, the Good Life feels like the kind of place the Rat Pack would have spent many a very happy, laidback hour in. Dim lighting, red vinyl booths, be-bop on the hi-fi, and a long cocktail menu round out the swingin’, chilled scene .

  6. Les Zygomates

    The dinner crowd at Les Zygomates (the French term for the facial muscles that make you smile) is lured by reasonably priced French bistro fare. Come 9pm, the sleek, whimsically designed bar area comes alive with young professionals intent on flexing and making the most of their smile muscles and appreciating the nightly live jazz performances .

    Les Zygomates
  7. Whiskey Park

    Anchoring the Park Plaza Hotel, Whiskey Park more closely approximates the trendy Manhattan cocktail-lounge concept than any bar in Boston. The gorgeous, black-clad wait staff serves all the classics – sidecars, mai tais, cosmopolitans, et al. The bar is owned by “Mr Cindy Crawford”, nightlife mogul Rande Gerber.

    • 64 Arlington St

  8. Regattabar

    The giants of jazz frequently stop at this nautical-theme lounge in Cambridge’s Charles Hotel. Drinks may not be extraordinary but the talent is; recent visitors have included McCoy Tyner, Ron Carter, and local favorite the Charlie Kolhase Quintet. A popular place, its shows sell out quickly .

  9. Noir

    Sophisticated bar food such as flatbread pizzas, or chicken and shrimp skewers with dipping sauces, complement equally sophisticated variants on the martini. The all-black decor with high-backed banquettes creates a perfect atmosphere for private carrying-on. Waitresses carry flashlights to help read the menu.

    • Charles Hotel, 1 Bennet St, Cambridge

    • 617 661 8010

  10. Porters Bar and Grill

    There are a dozen taps pouring a variety of local, British, and Irish beers here. Porters is a favorite before and after hockey and basketball games played in the TD Banknorth Garden. Parking is not great, but the North Station T is handy.
