Atmosphere – The interior decor, lighting schemes and layout at Cuffs Boston are all A1. The plush black leather couches, secluded areas and dim lighting create a very seductive atmosphere. The backlighting on the bar, as you can notice in above pictures is really cool looking. The feature of this place that stuck out to me the most was the fireplace. If you’re not into the whole indoor thing, check out the patio at Cuffs Boston and do some people watching.

My Opinion – Cuffs Boston, previously Jury, is located in the Back Bay Hotel. It has most of the qualities of most upscale hotel bar/lounges, hence the beautiful interior design and sultry atmosphere. Despite most of us associating Irish Pubs with less attractive spaces, Cuffs Boston is an Upscale Irish Pub Lounge (new bar category right there.) They stay true to those roots keeping lots of beers on tap and keeping the options wide open in that regard. The crowd is more of a sophisticated younger professional crowd that has a little extra money to spend on drinks and food so they come to Cuffs Boston to rub elbows with like-minded folks.
