spot for a drink near the common

Hello all,

I'm looking for a fun place to grab a drink near the movie theatre on the common. We'd like to go somewhere kind of swanky, any ideas?

      Jerne is the new Ritz just to clarify. Also Teatro and Ivy but the others mentioned are swankier.

        sorry about that. i meant new ritz. i swear :)

      1. Depending on your style- Gypsy Bar and Excelsior are also right there on Boylston near the theatre

        1. Teatro on Tremont Street about 10 yards from the movie theater was the first thing that came to mind.

          1. Besides Jerne at the Ritz and Teatro, you might go upstairs to Blu at the LA Sports Club which has a great bar and killer apps. Not inexpensive but no more so than Jerne and it has a good size bar with a view, albeit a view of the Combat Zone, I mean Downtown Crossing or the "ladder district..."
