Order your drinks 'spirit forward'. Innovative approach. The absolute best fries and burger if you like rare burgers

Not the best cocktail bar I've been to but Drink does decent cocktails, has a good atmosphere and hard working staff. The Whiskey Sours were a little disappointing (no egg white and not sharp enough) but still tasty. Their Old Fashioned and French 75 were really good.

If you want a great place to enjoy cocktails and/or heavy hors d'oeuvres. The service was great (on a Tuesday night it ebbed and flowed with customers). The aqueduct, mint julep, martini, gold rush, sazerac and especially the palmyra were well executed. The hummus, fries and especially the burger were amazing. I had some reservations based upon reviews, but I... More

Love the idea that you get a cocktail maid especially for you. The food is great (some will say they have the best burger).

When I ordered my first drink I told the waiter that I did not like gin. He challenged me to try the gin drink he was going to make for me and sure enough, I liked it and I never like gin drinks. That shows the skill level we have here. The surprising part was how good the food was... More

Gotta give chef Barbara Lynch some credit: She's got a Italian cafeteria-style restaurant above (Sportello), and a French Relais and Chateaux restaurant next door (Menton.) What to do with the basement? Make a cocktail lounge! The crowd is young...and willing to wait longer than a kid for a Disney ride. The end result can often be a let-down. No drink... More

I had visitors in who had heard of the bar from a friend and so I ushered them to the hidden entrance in the cellar of a nondescript building in South Boston. The first time we went (around 7:30) there was a line and a 40 minute wait to get in. We left and found our way to the Rooftop... More

Any time I'm in Boston, I make my way to Drink so I've been on several occasions. Ilove the space and the professionalism of the bar staff, and each time I am amazed at the consistent quality of the cocktails. My boyfriend LOVES the "Means of Preservation" and I usually just ask for something "refreshing and not too sweet" and... More

the novelty of having your cocktails tailor made for you is an excellent concept and was really fun to watch and try! however the staff need some serious training in custom service as they have moody "I'm too cool for you" attitudes. this is evident in the way they have little to no concern if your food is taking a...

We stumbled across this basement level bar and were so shocked by what we found. The bar doesn't have a drink menu, rather you tell them about the mood you are in, what flavors you are looking for (sweet and spicy), and the liquor you like and the concoct something up for you. There were several in our group and... More

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.
