Atmosphere – Citizen Public House is low lit, has dark wood throughout the establishment and a huge bar that runs the length of the restaurant. Size-wise, it is somewhere between small and medium sized. The decor has a historic feel with loud music echoing throughout the bar. The What’s unique about Citizen Public House is the fireplace that hugs the wall in the lounge chair area.

My Opinion – New as of Fall 2010, Citizen Public House in Boston has a dark, seductive vibe on the inside. Go to the Oyster Bar if you are feeling froggy (seafood’s not my thing.) The crowd here is a mostly that of professionals ranging from late 20s to early 40s. What I like about Citizen Public House is that the atmosphere and decor is not too over the top or pretentious to the point you don’t feel comfortable not pulling up in a Bentley and wearing a tux. It is very nice but still has a cozy feeling to it. If you are entertained and amazed as easy as I am, make sure you ask about the ice ball maker when you go.
