Hotel bars are always good for a few things. They’re usually a lower key affair, so conversation is easy to have. There are usually patrons from all over the country or the world who may be staying in the hotel. And typically, the hotel bars offer a more refined environment with good food and better drinks.

One of the best Boston hotel bars is Bond at The Langham Hotel. Here, financial fat-cats mix and mingle with dapperly dressed dames over intricate cocktail concoctions and a mutual love of the finer things in life. Over at the Liberty Hotel, meanwhile, there’s both Alibi and Clink which are criminally themed hotel bars featuring mug shots, actual jail cells, and flirtatious crowds.

There are many other stellar hotel bars like City Bar in the Lenox Hotel, minibar at the Copley Square Hotel, Woodward at the Ames Hotel, and Noir at the Charles Hotel. What all the spots have in common is a chic atmosphere and some of the finest drinks in all of Boston.

Whether you’re visiting the city from out of town, or just want a swanky night to impress a date, there are a good amount of outstanding hotel bars in Boston for you to choose from – just don’t forget your wallet.
