  • 4. Bull & Finch Pub / Cheers

    I've passed this pub many times and normally I wouldn't bother going inside if it's classified as a "tourist" place (which means too crowded, overpriced meals and drinks and not so good service), but...

    The Bell in Hand has always been one of my favorite spots in the Faneuil Hall area. During the day, you can sit by the large open windows and enjoy a fine summers day. At night they usually have a...

    Years ago this was one of the places to be. It was a hot dance club and lounge where the rich and famous came out to play. Today it's a kareoke club. I would go back just to see how the club has...

  • 11. Central Square

    Two great bars have opened in Central Square in the past couple of years that make it hipper than ever without turning it into an annoying Davis Square 'scene' - RIVER GODS on River Street is...

  • 12. House of Blues

    The original House of Blues. It used to be advertised as being at Harvard Square but now they say it is in Cambridge. It is smaller than the other HOBs I have visited but makes up for that by it's...

  • 13. The Burren

    Very popular place with the locals. There are live bands every night, sometimes even directly from Ireland. Lots of stone structures, making the pub feel authentic. Unfortunately, I missed the Irish...

  • 14. Purple Shamrock

    To the best of my memory there is no dress code for the Purple Shamrock by day or by night. However, past a certain point in the evening they begin to charge a cover price to get in the door. At night...

  • 15. The Rack

    Update: The Rack, although still an option in the Virtual Tourist Nightlife drop down list, has gone out of business and the The Hard Rock Cafe has moved in. Depending on when you go, The Rack is...

  • 16. Waltham: Moody Street

    This is a popular spot among the locals, but is located very far away from downtown, so it might not be a good option for tourists staying around the main central areas of Boston and not having a car...

  • 17. Manray Nightclub

    Named after an Avante Garde artist. This nightclub is not for the faint of heart. Go wearing leather, pvc or a goth costume. The music is awesome to dance to, and the people watching is the best in...

  • 18. Green Dragon

    The Green ragon is a favorite Pub of ours when visiting Boston. My wife and I enjoy the laid back yet fun atmosphere of the place. The bar is a decent size with plenty of bar seating as well as tables...

  • 24. Wally's Café

    Amazing live jazz every night of the week. An incredibly small venue so I'd recommend getting there earlier if you want a seat. Very intimate and outstanding jazz musicians. Each night is a different...

  • 25. Ames Plow Tavern

    Always one of my favorite pubs to go with a small group, grab a table along the wall, drink a beer and chat. It's usually a pretty quiet little bar, but its location under Quincy Market ensures a...
