Party Earth The Greatest Bar Review

The Scene

The Greatest Bar in Boston's North End is a cavernous sports bar/club near TD Garden. Get your pregame on & stick around to dance with Party Earth Boston.

The Greatest Bar’s self-glorifying moniker may sound pompous, but the regular jersey-clad clientele would be quick to point out that there’s no place for modesty in Titletown.

Located down the street from the TD Garden – home of the Bruins and Celtics – this cavernous venue features several levels, each with a different vibe to suit the varying moods of the sports obsessed, with ample space left over for those looking to sing a little karaoke or get their dance on after the game.

The first floor serves as the main game watching area, where young and old fans cheer, pound beers, and keep their eyes riveted on the gigantic fourteen-foot flat-screen mounted above the bar.

A balcony provides space for chiller groups of friends to escape the mob below and still monitor the score, while the Dirty Water room yet another flight up has its own dedicated bar and a pair of Skeeball machines, so guys can bro out on non-game nights.

Murals of iconic Beantown scenes adorn the walls in the top-level Boston Room, a classy special events space that doubles as the DJ’s home on Fridays and Saturdays, when tables are pushed aside and the raucous college-age crowd moseys up to fist pump to Top 40 and club mashups.

To pregame, watch the game, and dance it up without shame, The Greatest Bar is…a very good choice.

Tip from Lucas:

Like every other sport at The Greatest Bar, Skeeball is taken seriously. So seriously that there’s actually a competitive Skeeball league every Wednesday and Thursday night. Talk to the manager if you’re interested in showing off your prowess, or just head to the third floor and take in the action.

  • Crowd

    Patriots/Red Sox/Bruins/Celtics die-hards, young professionals from the Financial district blowing off steam, college kids and recent grads indulging in fratty behavior, and unpretentious groups of students ready to dance it up on the weekends, early 20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Live band karaoke on Thursdays and live music every other Wednesday. DJ spins Top 40 and club mashups from 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights. TVs around the bar, including a massive fourteen-footer, show all Boston games and other major sporting events.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Traditional sports grub with a Southwestern emphasis, including “drunken” pulled pork sliders, guacamole, nachos, and the Belly Buster Burger.

  • Prices

    Cover $5–$10 for special game day events and F/Sa nights. Appetizers $7–$10, salads $6–$14, sandwiches/burgers $7–$13+. Beer $4–$6, wine $6–$8, cocktails $7–$12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: jerseys, hoodies, sneakers, jeans, polo shirts, t-shirts, any kind of team flair, with more clubwear on Fridays.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Bruins/Celtics game nights to catch Boston sports fever, or Friday and Saturday nights after 10pm to whoop it up with a big, young dance crowd.

  • Close By

    If TGB is packed, savvy fans head a block down to The Fours (166 Canal Street), a Boston institution since the 70s with two bars and several dozen high-def TVs carrying the game.

Great Location, Nice Bar, Fairly Expensive.
Derrick L. Aug 6, 2013
If you are going to any type of event at the TD Garden then this isn't a bad place to stop into. The Greatest bar is really good size with 3 levels of bars but still manages to be jam packed on most occasions. The bar is really clean and on most nights it has a casual drinking environment like a typical sports bar. If you are a young adult who doesn't have a whole lot of spending money then this place probably isn't for you. Most beer is priced over $5 and the cover tends to be $10 on nights of games. In this case I would recommend running right across the street to Sullivan's Tap where you can get drinks for a much reasonable price.
Skeeball League

skeeBOSTON.com hosts Boston's 1st competitive skeeball league on the 3rd floor of The Greatest Bar on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Teams of 3 compete in an 8 week season to see who will be crowned Boston's best skeeballer. Not only is skeeball a great additional to the bar, but it is the best location near the Garden to grab a few drinks before or after an event. The food is pretty solid for a bar, check out the nachos!
