Party Earth The Last Hurrah Review

The Scene

The Last Hurrah in Downtown Boston is a classic old school bar inside a boutique hotel. Sip a few mellow spirits with some privileged Bostonians & Party Earth.

Inside the historic Omni Parker House Hotel – reportedly the birthplace of the Boston cream pie circa 1867 – The Last Hurrah transports its classy patrons back in time with vintage chandeliers, drinks served on silver trays, and overstuffed leather couches ideal for settling in for cocktails and conversation.

Through the decades, the cozy joint has seen scores of notable figures pass through its doors, including Charles Dickens, Ralph Waldo Emerson, the old-money Boston crowd, and lots of local politicians.

Shiny wooden two-tops fill the oak-paneled room, perfect for dapper couples and sharply attired confidants to hold low conversations over martinis and lobster rolls, while larger groups settle in on tufted chairs by the windows overlooking the Freedom Trail.

While a handful of young professionals might hang out at the bar to catch the game, the majority of patrons prefer to chat with friends as bow-tied waiters deliver rounds from the extensive whiskey and scotch list.

The crowd can surge at any given time depending on who is staying at the hotel, but the vibe is usually calm, making this venue a great spot for sneaking in a relaxing day drink or starting a weekend off nice and slowly.

Guests won’t find raucous parties at The Last Hurrah, but the high-end cocktails and swanky-meets-historic ambiance is certainly something to cheer about.

Tip from Adriana:

Try the Dickens Punch, a fruity alcoholic concoction that Charles himself was known to wet his whistle with during his days as a regular. Its artfully blended mix of juices and boozes might have you imploring the bartender, ‘Please sir, may I have some more?’

  • Crowd

    Classy hotel guests, business types, politicians, discerning young professionals, couples, and urbane groups of friends, late 20s to late 40s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient Sinatra or light jazz. Couple of TVs tuned to sports at the bar.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Classic American fare with a New England spin, including pot pies, meatloaf, and lobster rolls.

    Venue faces a section of The Freedom Trail, a famous path that winds through Downtown and leads to sixteen significant historic city sites.

  • Prices

    Appetizers/salads $7–$17, sandwiches $14–$22, entrées $15–$17, desserts $7–$9. Beer $6–$8, wine $8–$11/glass or $30+/bottle, cocktails $7.50–$12.50, whiskeys and scotch $8–$29+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual to dressy: dark jeans, collared shirts, suit jackets, refined dresses, high heels, glittery accessories.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Early in the week to day drink in style and watch the busy pedestrian traffic, or any night to enjoy the ambiance and decadence of a bygone era with a revolving cast of fellow patrons.

  • Close By

    Parker’s Bar (60 School Street) is Omni Parker House’s second bar, located a half floor up from The Last Hurrah. The venue shares Hurrah’s vintage flair, but bigger tables and an expanded food menu make it the more casual of the two.

Comfortably Swanky
Nina F. Aug 6, 2013
Old world glamour fills the atmosphere of this spacious whiskey bar inside the Omni Parker House. Buttery mahogany and soft leather complement the bow-tied wait staff and specialty martinis. I came wearing a fedora and a sundress, felt right at home on a a loveseat with my husband, next to the large bay window with soft light. Famous political faces are on the walls, and the crowd was mostly polos and khakis, from people in their early 30s to the elderly. If you're looking for a lazy Saturday afternoon with a little buzz, come meet some friends at this spot. We were served warm nuts with our drinks, which ranged from the Mango Mango Martini (delicious and not too sweet) to bourbon on the rocks, to the spicy jalapeno of my friend's specialty martini (one sip was enough!). We were too busy with our drinks to look at the food, but we did get to explore the hotel, which is eerily, though beautifully, reminiscent of "The Shining." No ghosts were spotted.
