Atmosphere – Hennessys Boston has a typical bar setting with tables for dining in. There is a bar on one side and the rest is mostly open space at night. The front opens up during the summer which is nice. The walls at Hennessys Boston are painted yellow and there is finished wood and black trim throughout. I’d say its a small to medium sized venue.

My Opinion – Nice bar to enjoy and share a few drinks with good friends. Right in that little cluster of historic looking bars that just about all play live music and look like they could have been there since the 18th century. I haven’t had food here but I hear its good. Overall if you like the Irish bar atmosphere that is just between a dive and an upscale bar, with friendly patrons and little bit more of a sophisticated crowd than most of the other Faneuil spots, you’ll like it here.
