21st Amendment Boston

May 7th, 2011, 04:05:36 Lito

21st Amendment Boston on the cusp of being a dive bar, definitely has the decor and dingy dive bar feel. They have a good trivia crowd on Sunday but can get packed early. Great place to grab a bite with friends after work. Like most neighborhood bars of it’s kind, there is a wide array of patrons ranging from young professionals to established veterans. 21st Amendment Boston is a bit expensive but well worth it. All in all it’s a small, dark, cramped venue and possibly the only place in Beacon Hill you won’t have cell reception.

Delux Boston

April 8th, 2011, 09:04:56 Bobby

Delux is off the beaten path in South End, pretty close to Back Bay and the Theater District. The place has cheap drinks (pretty sure I ordered three drinks and the bartender said $10.) The surprising thing about Delux is that despite the fact that it is a dive, the atmosphere is always eclectic here on the weekends. Usually it is packed wall to wall to the point that you can barely even move which is surprising for a neighborhood bar. The food is of tex-mex sort, and keep in mind it is CASH ONLY!

Ames Plow Tavern

April 8th, 2011, 08:04:42 Bobby

Ames Plow Tavern is actually a great little Faneuil Hall bar in my opinion. Ames Plow is a breath of fresh air because it is in the midst of the overpriced tourist traps that Faneuil Hall is riddled with. The places that basically charge more because they can. Ames Plow has really cool bartenders, very good food and its “wicked” cheap! Plus, the patio is right out in the marketplace so in the warmer months it is A1 people watching real estate. Stop in sometime, even if its just for one drink before you go to the one of the other spots around it.
