Makenzie and Megan are amazing bartenders that were full of knowledge of cocktails and genuinely nice people to talk with at the at. A wealth of knowledge means you can describe what you want and they have s cocktail for you. Go here. It is the unmarked door with stairs down to the right as you walk in. Not as hard to fin as it sounds.

Jackson, Meaghan, the cocktails and atmosphere. Best place to wait out a ridiculous snow storm!

Nice spot to grab a drink, it's a craft cocktail bar. Similar is some ways to the style of Drink in the Fort Point neighborhood if you have been there. Pretty extensive cocktails based on your preferred taste profile. Smaller menu of light bites. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable on my visit. Overall a great place to go near Fenway for high end cocktails in a comfortable and low key atmosphere.

A very nice speak easy in the heart of Boston. Go early to be able to get a table. Big drinks variety.

This establishment is marketed as a bar, but if it was marketed as a bar and restaurant I'd give it 3 stars. Dinrks: great. Service: great. Food: meh I tried the Jack Rose and the Marshall Islands Swizzle and both were fantastic. Very smooth and beautiful to look at. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Service was quick and friendly and they moved us from the bar to a table with no problems. They actually moved us to a zebra couch which was heaven to sit on. Give it a try. I also tried the pretzels with mustard and hummus. The pretzels were dry with or without the mustard and the mustard was quite liquid-y which threw me off and it didn't hold onto the pretzel...you could taste the bourbon (no complaints there). The hummus was okay but the accompaniments were great--lots of veggies and chips and good bread.

Take the serious approach to craft cocktails at upscale lounges like Drink but subtract the distracted staff, the noise, and the pushy crowds and you get The Hawthorne. Sleek modern and (above all) comfortable space with attentive service and creative cocktails, along with some neat bar bites like beef tongue on toast. It is expensive but it tends to attract a crowd that is more interested in enjoying a serious cocktail than in showing off how much they're paying for it.

Drinks: 4 Decor: 4 Service: 4 Came here Sun night around 9pm. Plenty of space with tasty, creative drinks, and I asked the bartender to whip up something like an old-fashioned but a bit sweeter and more citrusy. Metered street parking.
