    Small bar, not a huge selection, but a great little stop for after work drinks.

    Great, quiet bar to sit back, relax and have a glass of scotch or a beer. Solid onion rings too.

    Had a really good Bloody Mary, was pretty expensive though and you pretty much have to walk into the kitchen to get to the ladies' toilets. Bar staff were really friendly

    The 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition in the US in 1920. Try one of the beers from San Francisco's 21st Amendment Brewery that are on tap. Revel in the name of this bar and what it stands for.

    Great place for after-work drinks. On weekends, expect loud dance music to be playing that doesn't really match the ambiance of the bar.

    Too crowded with undergrads for my taste. Decent prices for drinks. Music's a touch too loud.

    Half price appetizers between 3-6pm. Try the nachos! They're the best in town

    Try the nachos. They are seriously the best in all of Boston. This is coming from a native Texan too!

    A hole-in-the-wall spot with a cozy dining room and bar, serving up some seriously stellar pub fare. You'll feel like you've discovered Beacon Hill's best-kept secret.

    This pub, located in the shadow of the State House, was originally built in 1899 as a luxury hotel. It's rumored to have been a favorite haunt of JFK, who allegedly wrote speeches by the fireplace. Read more

    The burger I got was good but one of the messiest burgers I've ever eaten. Also, it seemed our waitress gave our table to another waitress half way through. It took over half an hour to get our check.

    Considered the "dive" of Beacon Hill by most Suffolk students and State House interns. Not the greatest selection of beers, but a great stop for a few drinks after work.

    It features cheeky cocktails like Prohibition Punch & The Speakeasy, as well as a modest array of wines and draughts. Don’t be surprised to see one of your state senators stopping by for a drink. Read more
