Party Earth The Sevens Ale House Review

The Scene

Friendly and down-to-earth, The Sevens Ale House is the quintessential Boston pub whose welcoming ambiance draws a crowd of hip young professionals and seasoned locals alike.

Friendly and down-to-earth, The Sevens Ale House is the quintessential Boston pub whose welcoming ambiance draws a crowd of hip young professionals and seasoned locals alike.

A tiny space fitted out with vintage beer ads and newspaper articles recounting factoids about the bar’s history – more than 60 couples have met at The Sevens and later married! – the pub offers a relatively calm atmosphere in the early evenings when solo drinkers and Beacon Hill barflies stop in to linger over a few cold pints or hunker down over a menu of stout sandwiches, bar appetizers, and New England specialties.

The place gets livelier as the night wears on, as roving bands of twenty-something locals pack in against the back wall to play darts or crank classic rock and guilty pleasure pop songs on the jukebox.

Busy nights see the small space get pretty cramped, but the easygoing crowd doesn’t seem to mind as preppy finance types and artsy downtowners stand shoulder to shoulder to watch a Sox game or down a few pints of Harpoon IPA.

Armed with a great beer selection and a laid-back vibe, The Sevens keeps this stylish downtown neighborhood feeling a little more like home.

Tip from Lucas:

Make sure you sample The Sevens Ale, a namesake specialty beer by local brewer Harpoon. It’s a great dark (but surprisingly not too heavy) beer, and you can only get it here!
