Back Bay, Boston –
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.
Young Back Bay professionals, artsy designers, sales and finance types, and graduate students, mid-20s to late 30s.
Six flat-screen TVs tuned to sports. NFL Sunday ticket available. Satellite radio and jukebox play everything from Top 40s to classic rock.
Healthy comfort foods including tomato basil soup, Thai chicken wraps, spice-rubbed flank steak, and meatloaf burgers. Sandwich specials from 11:30am–3pm and half price appetizers from 5pm–7pm M–F.
Appetizers $5–$8, salads and sandwiches $7–$10, weekday sandwich specials $5, entrées $13+. Beer $4–$6, wine $6–$12, cocktails $8+, martinis $10.
Casual: t-shirts and jeans or work attire.
Weeknights for a bustling after-work scene, and Fridays and Saturdays for bigger crowds and special events.
Daisy Buchanan’s (240 Newbury Street) is a lively Irish pub great for meeting people in the neighborhood.
