Party Earth Towne Stove and Spirits Review

The Scene

The brainchild of famed Boston chefs Lydia Shire and Jasper White, Towne Stove and Spirits is a charming spot located in the Back Bay building of the Hynes Convention Center.

The brainchild of famed Boston chefs Lydia Shire and Jasper White, Towne Stove and Spirits is a charming spot located in the Back Bay building of the Hynes Convention Center.

The vast bi-level bar and restaurant sports a classy atmosphere and high-end menu that attract suited business types and worn-out convention attendees alike.

Downstairs, groups of execs unwind over cocktails, while couples on dates tend to perch at the tables along the high windows with their view of bustling Boylston Street.

A mirrored staircase leads to the dining room on the second level, an immense formal space usually filled with large parties of traveling exhibitors and event planners looking for a good meal with a little panache.

An open kitchen, revealed by a wide glass panel, allows interested onlookers to watch the chefs at work as they wield their vintage utensils to prepare Wagyu beef short ribs and skirt steak in the wood-fire rotisserie.

The crowd gets noticeably denser as the sun sets, with upscale locals and tastemakers packing into the small bar and dining lounge on the ground floor to get a high-spirited buzz on, or heading out to the seasonal patio to enjoy a cool drink in the summer heat.

A swanky hangout for people from all over the world, Towne Stove and Spirits provides a sophisticated but laid-back atmosphere that makes its guests – from the VIPs to the average Joes – feel right at home.

Tip from Adriana:

In good weather, the patio is a great place to start off a wild night. Grab a Peloponnese cocktail with your girlfriends and get a buzz on before heading to your next stop.

Can't Go Wrong with Towne
Serghino R. Apr 2, 2013
Whether it’s for the food or a spontaneous split decision to get drinks with friends, you won’t go wrong with choosing Towne Stove & Spirits. Centrally located in in the Back Bay, you’ll find that it's very easy to, given that it’s right next door to the Prudential Mall. Once there, make your way to the window seats near the entrance. It's a great people watch spot for all seasons. For more of the ambiance, make your way to the swanky rear bar. The bartenders are super nice and personal. They will go out of their way to make sure your experience is positive. You’ll leave feeling like you've made some friend. If you're in the mood for a cocktail, try the Mr. Brownstone. It's a savory and creative mix of bourbon, cinnamon, maple liqueur, simple syrup and lemon. The bourbon maintains it's smoothness, emboldening the flavors. The tartness of the lemon and spices tame the sweetness. If you’re not the cocktail type, this may make you convert.
