Individual Pieces of High-Quality Bar Glassware?

Where can I go for good-quality martini glasses, tumblers, highball glasses, and champagne flutes? I'm looking to buy individual glasses (or packs of 2 at most), which may make this a bit more difficult. Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. Online - get the Reidel Vinum martini glasses - they are worth every penny (best price I know of is $40 for two on amazon) - they are just the right size, perfectly balanced and nice to look at - they break quite easily, however (two of ours gone in the past year - and we will replace them with same again...).

    Otherwise, I think Sur La Table (chestnut hill) has nice bar glasses by the piece - very happy with our crystal (and DW safe, unlike the martini glasses) double old-fashioned glasses from there - very solid quality, moderate to slightly high prices.

      Thanks! This is a big help. I may take a run over to CH next week.

    2. Also Boston Shaker in Davis Sq.

      1. The Boston Shaker still hasn't opened their new storefront in Davis Square (should be any day now, I hope), but they have glassware for sale online:

        1. You could try Didriks in Cambridge, (near Concord and Huron Aves)

          Or Koo de Kir on Charles St in Beacon Hill

          1. Not as stylish as some but if you like your drinks to stay cold, you might also check out the double walled glassware by BOdum, available at Tag's in Porter Square, Sur la Table, online, etc. I especially like their champagne glass
