I have lived in Lowell for most of my life and regardless of the name (under previous ownership) I always saw this bar as a place to grab a beer outside in the summer. Then Ward Eight came along and became the first place I became somewhat of a regular. What keeps me coming back? It’s different than most other bars as in the bartenders are actually interested in what they are serving you. They have an astounding knowledge of craft beer and liquors and can be sure to please any palate. They are dedicated to carrying quality craft beers and artisan liquors that you may not have heard of but are sure to enjoy. So whether you like tequila, whiskey (ask Rich) or IPA’s (ask Matt) you’ll probably be introduced to something you like more than what you are accustomed too. They’ll actually give you a taster to make sure you like what you’re buying. They have also converted the inside to resemble a prohibition era speakeasy including bartenders in bowtie and vests. It’s a great place to grab a beer, get some dinner (the food is also great) or meet up with friends. They usually have some solid entertainment on the weekends and I recommend friending them on Facebook as they regularly post their beer updates and any entertainment that is coming up.
