Pubs in Downtown Boston / Financial District Overview

The Hatch Shell - Concert Venue in Downtown / Financial District, Boston

One of Boston's most heavily concentrated areas of pubs, mainly of the Irish variety, is centered around the Quincy Market area of Downtown. A walk down Union Street alone contains some of the most iconic Downtown pubs, including The Bell In Hand Tavern, The Tap, Hennessey's, Green Dragon, and Paddy O's. From the inside, these spots are nearly indistinguishable from the next; dark wood interiors, harsh wooden bar stools, loud music combined with loud conversation, and the undeniable scent of beer.

Since the Financial District caters towards a slightly more sophisticated crowd that is not quite as casual, this area of town does not have as many pubs on its own. The venues in the immediate area see more suits and ties than most, and as such, aren't quite as cavalier when it comes to dress codes and noise levels.

One only needs to wander into nearby Downtown to find those pubs that are perfect for grabbing a laid-back, no frills, tall frosty one, while listening to some live tunes by a local band or catching part of the game on TV. This area also tends to get a lot of overflow from folks in town that are attending an event at the TD Banknorth Garden.
