Description: Lying beneath the bleachers in center field of historic Fenway Park, a few feet from Ted Williams Red Seat, is the newest addition to Fenway. A unique bar, where the patrons are treated to not only great food and drink, but an unprecedented baseball experience. With a window that looks directly through centerfield and into the park, it is the only view of its kind. Bleacher Bar is a place where you can not only relax and an enjoy and extraordinary bar experience, but a place where you can feel the very history that is Fenway Park.

“For out of towners this is a place to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

A bar inside of a wall in Fenway. Not in the green monster though. However, there is a nice cut out to look onto the field from the bar. You are level with the ground. Really interested view.

“Great hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Not everyone even knows this place is there - it is a bit tight on game days but it is definitely worth the experience - even the mens room has a view of the field ;)

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

I never knew it was there, went in before the game had a few drinks and some hot pretzels before the game. You can even watch batting practice through the fence(IN THE BAR) before the game! Outstanding venue.....nice staff!

“DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR I.D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR I.D.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Myself and a few friends went here a few days ago before the Red Sox game. Their policy to reserve a table is that you must give them your license to hold on to. After we finish our meal, my friend asks for his license back, turned out they lost it. After a few minutes of looking through the book, the manager came over and said there was nothing he could do, that they probably gave it to someone else and hopefully they would come back with it later. He was acting like we were a waste of his time and that he had more important things to worry about.

I have come to this bar every time I am in the area for a Red Sox game or a show at the House Of Blues since the place opened, having spent hundreds of dollars here. It is a really cool bar being able to see right into the park. But the sad thing is that the place is always jam packed, and they really don't need your business to survive, so they could really care less about your issues or concerns. After the other night, they will not get another nickel out of me.

“Bleacher Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We were taken by a friend to Bleacher Bar after the Red Sox game ( very cool)
From the back of the back of the bar/restaurant there is a garage door that opens to the outfield.
You have a great view. We had apps and a dessert plus some beer. I do not know about real food as it is mostly a bar but it is a great find for a few hours. Too crowded to watch the game.
