Boston’s bar scene has recently reached new heights, going far beyond the stereotypical Irish pub. Cambridge and Somerville now house some of the best bars in the city. Check out these two neighborhoods while visiting these great bars in Boston.
This little bar in Inman Square is a great spot to come with friends. Its relaxed vibe and distinctive decor ensures that the crowd differs from the usual young Boston bars overrun with college students. As long as you come in before 1 am, Starlite does not close until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
A small German restaurant located in Union Square, Bronwyn is an ideal place to have a drink after dinner. The cocktails are unique and refreshing, and the long tables mean you can bring a large group. The space itself is small but there’s a softly lit patio that is great for summer nights.
One of the best parts about Sligo is that no matter what time of day, there is bound more than one person in the bar. Sligo is a traditional Boston dive-bar with cheap drinks and old TVs where the pretentions of Boston’s growing cocktail scene melt away. It’s a great place to go for a night filled with nice cheap beers.
