Very talented bartender's. No menu - you just ask for anything or offer some direction. My drink was so delicious. Thing is - it's a bar and I wanted a second. It was so slow I felt like a damn alcoholic for wanting a second and finishing a drink served in a flute. Not cool. It wouldn't kill... read more

This is an underground bar that has 3 separate bar areas set up in a row. Very basic looking bar with steel stools. No cocktail menu, you kinda of say what you like and they make it for you. Judging by the big vat of citrus, they make most of their drinks with that base. All the drinks looked the... More

The bar is located downstairs in a building. We were greeted by a bartender who asked us what we like to drink, and he disappeared only to return with excellent craft cocktails. A great find in the Seaport.

Went on a Sunday night around 6:30 and there were no open seats. I told the bartender what I was in the mood for and it was delicious! I finally got a seat and loved the cocktail he made me that I ordered another one with a bar snack. Very nice vibe, good music and great drinks-GO!

We went to Drink because it had been ranked high by Tripadvisor. It was a Saturday night, about 9 PM, and we had to wait about 20 minutes in the stairwell. Once admitted, we were escorted to a counter (no seating at the 3 large bar areas). A waitress asked us our drink preferences, then told us she would be... More

Looking for trendy bars in Boston we came upon Drink. Alittle hard to find in the basement below street level. Very cool space once inside. We were probably on the older side age wise but didn't feel out of place. There were no seats at the bar but the doorman found us a place to stand near the bar. The... More

The bar for people who enjoy finely-crafted cocktails. Been here twice and both times had incredibly well-made drinks. Don't know what you like? One of their fine bartenders will ask you what kinds of spirits and flavors you like and mix you up a delectable libation. BONUS: they serve up many of their drinks in uncommon glasses or ceramic mugs.... More

This place was very cool and had a hip, simplistic vibe. The ambiance was very warm, yet industrial and minimalist. I had a south side cocktail which was so tasty. The hype of this place is worth it. There is no drink menu, you just tell the bartender what type of drinks you like and they come back with something.... More

One of the coolest places to get a drink at if you don't mind waiting a minutes to get seated. Usually packed but worth the wait..from the knowledgable Bartenders to the selections of spirits.

I finally got to take friends here rather than colleagues and once again it did not disappoint. Drinks were delivered exactly as they were desired as well as puting on a bit of a show! The prices are also cheap considering the skill and effort in their creation with no menu!

Staying in Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront

Neighborhood Profile
Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
