Place to Drink Alone

2014 Winner: 21st Amendment

The spirit of this historic Beacon Hill tavern lends itself to sipping solo as well as to socializing. If you want to rub shoulders with neighborhood regulars or play trivia with State House workers, it’s that Boston landmark where everybody (actually) knows your name. But a come-and-go breeziness allows truly anyone seeking solitude to grab a pint and get lost in the crowd. Here, it’s said, JFK wrote speeches undisturbed in a cozy corner booth.
