The Scene – Located in the heart of South Boston, Lincoln is a classic American tavern built with the intention of being a comfortable meeting spot for locals looking to share stories at the end of their long day. Lincoln draws inspiration from it’s surrounding, hard-working, and uniquely American neighborhood.
Revitalizing a nearly forgotten West Broadway space that at one time housed the area’s only department store, Lincoln feels nostalgic. It’s open-air, tiled-floor cafe, grande bar, and soaring, original tin ceilings remind us of a time when dining halls and supper clubs were a way of life.
The interior layout is pretty easily described and displayed in the pictures below. It is broken up into two rooms, one being the main front room which is square and the back room is the same shape but a little smaller and more open (no booth seating). Both rooms have long, wood-finished bars that take up most of the right side of the establishment. Booth seating takes up the whole left wall of the establishment in the front room and high tables occupy the middle. The tables are custom reclaimed wood with antique cast iron bases with classic bentwood chairs. The finished wood (hardwood floors, classic back bar, bar top, booths) and exposed brick are the defining characteristics of this classic but modern venue.
Grab a booth up front with friends to grab food off of the late night bar menu (kitchen open until 1am) — or make your way past the lively main bar and into the back room where the dining tables are cleared out to provide ample space for the nightlife crowd
