    Pour House: A Cheap place to grab a beer and a bite

    by Gypsystravels Updated Jun 17, 2015

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another place we found as we were walking along the Boylston area. I had read and heard about this place, and I wasn't sure what I was expecting but was very surprised at the down homey atmosphere.

    They crowd is a mix of young and old and a bit loud, but what do you expect for a bar that claims to have the best and least expensive drinks in Boston.

    I wanted to try their version of the "Mojito" which is one of my favorite drinks for the summer. They were pretty good actually and I would definitely come back again just for that.

    They serve some really inexpensive food, with specials of the week, you really can't go wrong.

    Dress Code: We didn't eat anything but we did have their "BEST MOJITOS IN BOSTON" which were so yummy!!

    Pour House: Pour House

    The Pour House is renowned for its cheap drinks and bar food (by Boston standards anyway). I went there twice during my visit and had a great time because it's so laid back and relaxed. I didn't try the food, but the drink prices were very reasonable considering that it's smack in the middle of a big northeastern city.

    Dress Code: Very casual. Wear whatever you want.

    Pour House: Cheap beer and good burgers

    by kooka3 Written Apr 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for a good time in boston and don't want to spend a lot of money on drinks, then the Pour House is for you. The drinks are very cheap ($4.00 for a 22 ounce draft) and the food is just as cheap (Saturdays half off burgers). The only down side about the place is that the music tends to be a bit too loud and it's hard time trying to comunicate with other. All in all though, a great bar to go to with friends. If you like margaritas, get a pitcher - and try the amazing nachos!

    The upstairs is nice, a full bar and booth tables to eat and hang out with your friends. Downstairs is a tiki bar and tends to be a little darker and a little louder, but a nice place to get your drink on. My favorite thing is the table art-- gives you something funky to look at while you pound down those drinks.

    Dress Code: No real dress code.

    The Pour House: Not so "Pour"

    by mrdarius Written Jun 8, 2003

    Nothing too too great about the Pour House. This place is one of the bars on the Boylston St. strip which I find fall just short of being really fulfilling. Prices are a bit steep, it's always crowded and the music is loud. It has a 'purposely grungy' feel to it, with bathroom-esque paper towel dispensers at your table.

    The beer selection is weak, the nachos are ok if you're hungry, and make sure NOT to order a Guinness. Only in cans here.

    On the plus side, it's in a great location and there are tons of other bars to hit up if you don't like it. Ok for a couple drinks or a happy hour deal if you make it between 6-10pm. Sunday nights, they show movies downstairs for $2.50 cover.

    Dress Code: Nothing extraordinary.
