5 hottest bars in Boston
Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark.
For creative cocktails
The aptly named Drink has also been declared the World's Best Cocktail Bar for 2013 by the Spirited Awards, and for good reason! There’s no set cocktail list – just the chance to tell your expert bartender the spirits and flavours you like and let them shake up your perfect pina colada or mix you a mean mojito. Such attention to detail takes time, so service isn’t speedy but it’s worth the wait for the best bespoke cocktails you’ll ever taste.

Live like the locals
As close as you can get to being in an episode of Cheers, Sonsie is a Bostonian institution. A cool, cosmopolitan Back Bay bar, it’s a hit with locals as well as a few tourists and is a popular meeting place for after-work or late-night drinks. Sit by the open French doors in summer and watch the world go by while sampling a speciality martini mixed by experienced staff, then snack on tempting dishes. Soak up the busy yet friendly ambience and everyone may know your name by the evening’s end...

For designer dance floors
Dress up in Armani or Versace and fit right in at this super-chic club in the Theatre District, which bills itself as Boston’s Hottest International Nightclub and is part of the Pasha empire. Keep an eye out for the A-list as you enter through an Art Deco room to multi-tiered dance floors and plenty of seating space. Theme nights by resident DJs, including Signature Fridays, Entourage Saturdays and International Sundays, bring in sophisticated crowds to drink and dance to their heart’s content.

Lord Hobo
Best for beer
With more than 40 beers and ales on draught and a huge bottle range, Lord Hobo is a beer-lover’s dream. If you’re searching for rare or new beer, chances are you’ll find it here, and bartenders are happy to give samples and help you choose. A young crowd packs out the bar but there’s still room to sit and work your way from Belgian pale ale to Czech-style Pilsner. And even if beer’s not your thing, the huge selection of classic cocktails and an international wine list will draw you in.

Eastern Standard
Mixology and more
Cocktails are a passion at this upscale Kenmore Square bar with its stylish interior and heated outdoor patio. Feeling adventurous? Try the egg-based cocktails. Caught a chill? Go for the Cold Weather range. And if you can’t tear yourself away from the classics, sip a Frisco or a Mai Tai. An impressive wine list, good beer selection and fruity mocktails complete the set, while the vibrant atmosphere of the bar is sated by the cosy romance of the
Ann Corlo lounge.
