Lovely atmosphere for a quick cocktail

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... read 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

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

Just visited Drink for the third time last week, and my girlfriend and I both had a very nice experience. The food was good and the service was efficient. I think you should have an idea of what kind of cocktails or spirits you like before you arrive at Drink, it will help the bartender make you a drink that... More

I went to this place with a co-worker, on a whiskey launch at around 5pm on a weekday. The place was crowded, very busy, good buzz going on. Drinks are not cheap, but they're good, and food seems pretty nice as well. I would say it's a nice place to take a date to, if you're into cocktails and not... More

If you are an lover of craft spirit cocktails this is your spot. Drinks at Drink are not made to order. You give the bartender a ballpark idea of what you like and they serve a cocktail geared toward your taste. Yes, the place is staffed by pretentious hipsters. The ones who served us were attentive and nice, however. Drinks... More

The bar staff is nice, but generally pretty rushed. The fact that there isn't a menu puts a lot of pressure on the customer to make choices and know what they want. Some of the bartenders are good at providing suggestions, but others seem annoyed with having to help. The system is overly complicated with waiting to get in, starting... More

We had reservations at Menton so thought it would be nice to try Drink before dinner. The set up is interesting-I'd never been "seated" at a bar before. We were placed at a bar by the wall (no stools there) and a server took our order. There is a wine and beer list, but no cocktail menu. They ask you... More
