Back Bay, Boston –
Posh partiers in search of an upscale but cozy nightspot should head to Post 390, a warm and welcoming tavern whose outgoing clientele, open kitchen, and creative cocktails make for a great night out.
Housed in a former Post Office annex, the venue features a revolving glass door that gives way to a candlelit décor of textured wood paneling, faux brick, fireplaces, and plenty of city views.
Small groups and stylish couples fill the high-top tables by the windows to watch the bustling street scene and linger over lunch or dinner, while a modern black marble bar draws affable corporate types sampling craft cocktails like the popular Grape Excess.
The liveliest scene, however, happens on the second level, where animated guests gather at the extensive bar or crowd into tables and booths around the busy exposed kitchen to watch the chefs at work.
Given the stamp of approval by its trendy clientele, Post 390 is a sure bet for a festive evening of cocktails and conversation.
Trendy singles, affluent Back Bay locals, finance types, and couples, mid-20s to late 30s.
Ambient pop rock. Two flat-screen TVs tuned to local sports and CNN. Monthly Tap Wars featuring beers from independent breweries.
Seasonal menu featuring lamb sausage with feta flatbread, rigatoni and wild boar bolognese, and buttermilk-fried Cornish game hen. Patrons can ask for the Post Reward card to earn credits toward food, beverage, and gift card purchases. Reservations required F–Sa.
Brunch $3.50–$21, appetizers $11–$17, raw bar $14–$40, entrées $14–$42. Beer $5–$24, wine $7–$18, cocktails $8–$12, Bloody Marys $11+.
Nice casual to dressy: men in suits or jeans and button-downs, women in jeans and nice tops or dresses.
Friday and Saturday nights for a packed dining crowd.
The same clientele stops in at Whiskey Park (64 Arlington Street) for craft cocktails like the acai blueberry martini.
