Waterfront / Fort Point, Boston –
A warm-weather destination for throngs of stylish city dwellers, Tia’s On the Waterfront is a popular spot for shaking off the winter doldrums and celebrating the return of the sun.
Open April through October, the venue is usually packed from day one with young professionals and college students, who descend on the dozens of café tables on the three patios to catch a few rays and chat over pints and cocktails.
Just as welcoming on the inside, the tavern features dark wood accents, brick arches, and an elevated dining area where finance types gather for a laid-back bite to eat before being displaced by pub crawlers and birthday revelers on a boisterous night out.
Views of Boston Harbor and Christopher Columbus Park add to the festive atmosphere, especially on weekends when the small outdoor bar draws a considerable crowd of jocks, frat boys, and well-dressed singles looking to meet some cute coeds.
Though the place gets decidedly rowdier once the mellow after-work clientele departs, the bar’s strict bouncers, limited beer options, and dearth of Jäger bombs keep the scene under control.
Nevertheless, once Boston warms up, Tia’s On the Waterfront is no doubt one of the best places for discerning drinkers to cool off.
Young professionals, finance types, jocks, college students, and singles, early 20s to late 30s.
