Bar-Hopping Destination

2017 Winner: Union Square


Maybe it sufficed during your fake-ID days, but as a grown-up, tripping o’er the crowded cobblestones of Faneuil Hall gets old fast. Fortunately, better adult beverages can be found within a single block in Somerville’s Union Square. You’ll slam suds in the Bavarian-inspired biergarten of Bronwyn, tilt tipples with cocktail nerds at the hidden backbar, sip libations over lawn games on the Brass Union patio and wrap it up with nightcaps from the inventive cocktail list at the Independent. Uber bill: $0. Bar tab: Don’t ask.
