Bars in the Back Bay Overview

Max Brenner - Café | American Restaurant in Back Bay, Boston

Arguably one of the more sophisticated Boston neighborhoods – attracting young professionals looking to escape the college scene – Back Bay bars know how to keep it classy with haunts like City Bar, Post 390, Forum, and Towne Stove and Spirits. But this neighborhood is certainly not too uppity to host an overabundance of Irish pubs like Solas, M.J. O'Connor's, and Lir Irish Pub & Restaurant.

For Back Bay dive bars, locals again stick to the pubs. Crossroads Irish Pub and Bukowski Tavern are solid choices for a divey kind of night. Those who want to spice up the evening may find themselves at tequila spots like Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar and Zócalo Cocina Mexicana. To get a taste of the LGBT scene in Back Bay, people in the know go to Club Café.

Depending on the venue, revelers can make it out of Back Bay bars with a decent amount of cash in their pockets, or with an empty wallet.
