Fenway / Kenmore, Boston –
Although there are plenty of bars around Fenway Park, none of them offer a view quite like Bleacher Bar.
Tucked under the Green Monster’s bleachers, the one-time batting practice room is now a classy Sox bar with a wall-spanning window that looks directly out onto center field.
Tourists and crowds of Boston University students pile into the open space, vying for spots at one of the three high-top tables by the window, while the rest of the high-spirited fans and season ticket holders crowd into booths or huddle around the bar to enjoy cheap drinks and quick snacks.
A relaxed hangout during the off-season, the bar really comes alive on game days, when a forty-five minute time limit on the window tables gives fans without a ticket a chance to enjoy a drink and witness the action.
The rest of the enthusiastic crowd keeps its eyes glued to one of the eight flat-screen TVs, high-fiving each other over home-runs, or checks out the Sox’s storied past that covers the green walls in the form of old news articles, framed jerseys, and photo collages.
Red Sox fans looking for a unique baseball viewing experience and a friendly neighborhood vibe will find it at Bleacher Bar, an upbeat venue that deserves its place beneath the hallowed bleachers of Fenway Park.
Red Sox fans and baseball enthusiasts of all ages.
Viewing the Red Sox from center field. Flat-screen TVs tuned to Boston sports.
Menu of snacks and deli food including salads, sliders, and sandwiches.
Snacks $3–$9, salads $6+, sandwiches and sliders $7–$12. Beer $3.50–$8, wine $6+, cocktails $5.50+.
Casual, though Red Sox attire is recommended.
Great during any home game, though the bar is also good on non-game days for relaxing drinks, and – when the weather is nice and the garage door is lifted – an excellent view of the field.
Right across the street is Lansdowne Pub (9 Lansdowne Street), another haunt of Red Sox fans featuring live music and a hefty beer selection.
