Drinks near the Blue Room

Hi. I am going to be back in your wonderful city this week and although I'm pretty set on my eating agenda I would love your input on a place to have cocktails before our dinner at the Blue Room on Saturday night. We don't have any restrictions and we have learned to leave our beautiful preschooler home with the in-laws after the horrendous incident at at the Eastern Standard that left us speechless.


Nonetheless, as always, thank you!!

    Thank you so much! Depending on projected alcohol tolerance level maybe we'll have a drink at one of the neighboring bars/lounges, have a drink at the restuarant and then dinner! It's a good thing we are going to Elephant Walk for lunch so I should still have something to hold me over ;)

    I'll certainly report back.

      What about cuci cuci? Right in the neighborhood too.

        Drinks at the bar at the Blue Room are a treat. We love eating at the bar there, too.

          We usually sit on the back side of the bar where it's less hectic and quieter.

            B-Side isn't too far away from Blue Room.

              I second the B-Side, especially since they'll be closing soon. I think their cocktails are second only to No. 9 Park's (haven't been to Drink yet). Why not give a toast to the place that started the cocktail revolution in Boston?

              Hungry Mother, right around the corner, makes excellent drinks in a cozy environment. Blue Room has a nice bar, too, altho it sounds like you're seeking a different venue.
