Pour House, Boston
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!!
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.
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.
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.
