Boston might be thought of as an Irish city, but its citizens are mad about margaritas, as evidenced by the handful of stellar tequila bars sprinkled among the standard pubs and dives.
Kicking off the list of Boston tequila bars is Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar, a sultry sunken lounge located in the swanky Back Bay that stocks over 200 varieties of the liquor. A few blocks down, the Cactus Club is a casual favorite for young professionals who’d like to gulp a few extra-large margaritas after work while sunning themselves on the cozy patio, a prime people-watching spot.
For a fresh spin on the libation, head to SushiTeq in the Intercontinental Hotel. Maki and margaritas go together surprisingly well in the ultra-modern restaurant whose LED walls and ceiling change color every few seconds.
Colorful Papagayo bordering the South End offers tequila snow cones and a “Tequila Club” for the competitive – you can work your way through a certain number of tequilas (not in one night!) and earn free dinners, private tequila tastings, or your picture on the wall, complete with a plaque-hanging ceremony.
Even hipster-filled Allston has a tequila bar to call its own: Lone Star, cousin of the Texas-inspired craft cocktail bar Deep Ellum. Small plates such as Mexican street corn and an array of tacos complement the craft margarita list and keep the tattooed denizens of the area coming back for more.
Whether in the mood for a sweet margarita or a few quick shots, the tequila bars in Boston are sure to satisfy your craving.
