Atmosphere – The environment in The Hideout Boston is that almost of a dive bar. It isn’t necessarily dirty or dingy, it is just small, set under the famous Durgin Park restaurant so you feel like you might be in a bomb shelter. There is some restaurant seating at The Hideout Boston and medium sized bar that takes up a lot of the real estate inside. As far as decor there is not really much to say that the pictures don’t show. There is wooden floors, a finished wooden bar and cool back lit shelves behind it.

My Opinion – Formerly known as the Black Horse Tavern (not sure why they changed the name), The Hideout is an average Faneuil bar that is sort of hidden under Durgin Park so a lot of people do not know about it. I look at this as a positive thing more than a negative thing personally because it helps create a nice easy going atmosphere. The people who work at The Hideout are super nice and down to earth and everyone loves the bartenders and the bands who play there. Overall The Hideout is a nice little hidden gem in Faneuil Hall.
