Party Earth The Corner Tavern Review

The Scene

A lively single-room neighborhood haunt loved by locals for its welcoming atmosphere and hearty food and drink, The Corner Tavern attracts an outgoing clientele of Back Bay professionals, grad students, and artsy types.

A lively single-room neighborhood haunt loved by locals for its welcoming atmosphere and hearty food and drink, The Corner Tavern attracts an outgoing clientele of Back Bay professionals, grad students, and artsy types.

Located in a brownstone basement, the warmly-lit tavern exudes a homey charm with its brick and stone walls, flat-screen TVs tuned to sports, and framed cult movie posters with titles like Marijuana Girl, Hot Rod Rumble, and Gun Crazy.

Scattered tables provide space for the amiable groups of finance guys and couples who stop in to chat over pints and appetizers, order rounds of the shot of the month, and sing along to the jukebox.

Although small, the pub rarely reaches its bursting point, offering a relaxed environment that doesn't require elbowing one’s way to the bar or shouting to be heard – and unlike most Boston bars, drinks are served until two in the morning.

Lively and sociable, The Corner Tavern is a great neighborhood spot for kicking back with old and new friends alike.
