Fun, interesting cocktails

We heard really great things about Drink when coming to Boston, so I was excited when we were able to get in right away (marathon weekend too, though it was a Sunday night). It was "tiki night," and I'm not usually into super fruity drinks, but these were some very interesting cocktails! My drink... read more

I wasn't overly impressed with Drink. I went with 2 friends/colleagues last week. It was really busy which contributed to the atmosphere but also meant we stood in line for 45 minutes and then were given a table to stand at for another half hour or more before we got seats at the bar. One pro is they triage you... More

My girlfriends and I have been dying to go to Drink for sometime. We heard of the amazing concept in which the bartenders take cues from what you like and create you a drink. As it was our first time there we were a little unsure of how to go about ordering (the menu only lists beer and wine). The... More

$12 for a cranberry & vodka that was less than 12oz, welcome to the elite side of town! The concept is a bit strange, you literally feel like you're in someone's kitchen. This is paired with exposed pipe, cement pillars & a case of various types of beetle/bug models (????) Plus the lights are so ridiculously dim the whole time.... More

Came here after dinner for some after dinner drinks. The niche that this place has is that you tell the bartender what alcohol and flavors you like and they will come up with a cocktail to hopefully meet your requests. After coming here and experiencing them firsthand I can say with certainty that these people are true mixologists. It is... More

Arrived at 4.15pm and had to wait 50 minutes to get a space standing at a counter set around the outside of the bar. While waiting several people waltzed straight in because a friend inside had kept a seat for them. Very poor seating policy. Cocktails were a little over priced but worth it because of the novelty of having... More

I was finally able to get to this place which I have heard about from friends as being a nice change from the typical cocktail bar. The place opens at 4, and I got there with my boyfriend just after 4:30 and we had the last seat at the bar. The layout of the small space is smart: long zigzagging... More

After years of saying I would get there finally got there. Custom made drinks...good food choices, great atmosphere and I will return just to listen to their music playlist if nothing else. I found the personal service exceptional and the experience so fun! Welcome unique experience to the Boston bar scene!

You walk down below Sportello, and into a darkened, trendy room that makes you feel like you were walking into a speakeasy. You sit on a barstool, as a polished bartender asks you how you're feeling. They ask you what kind of mood you're in, and then they go to work. The bartenders get very creative, and start building a... More
