South Boston has evolved in recent years into a desirable neighborhood for families and young professionals who are drawn to its strong sense of community. The so-called ‘Southie pride’ is put on full display during the annual South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade, when thousands of residents come to watch their neighborhood at its finest. Due to its Irish roots, South Boston is home to numerous bars, the best of which are listed below.
The Playwright offers a diverse menu ranging from a house salad to lamb lollipops. The staff provides great service and the TV setup works perfectly for large sports events. There are often superb live music events during the week, and a DJ on Friday nights, and every Tuesday night customers have the chance to win $100 during Trivia Night. The long oak bar offers a wide variety of spirits and fine wines, making The Playwright perfect for beer-loving sports enthusiasts and a more refined crowd.

The Junction draws a good crowd during nights of major sports events, but the atmosphere never gets too chaotic and the service always retains its high standard.
