    A cash-only gem. Cafe- library-dive bar fusion feels. A New Yorkers homesickness cure. Wash it down with some cold brews.

    Discovered that one of my Yoga instructors is a bar tender there. Great vibe. A J.P. staple that I had neglected to visit. Try the pilsner and the mandarin brew

    This place doesn't take credit cards, but there is an ATM inside, that it charges a $1 dollar fee :). It doesn't serve food either but you can bring your own. Great selection of beers, btw!

    This was my standard when I moved to Boston almost 20 years ago. It's changed a lot over the years but it's still a great place - albeit really loud and crowded sometimes.

    Barkeep John Casey, who hails from Ireland, says, ‘‘It’s probably about as similar to something back home as you’d get around Boston, you know. Not so much of the shamrocks and shenanigans.’’
