Boston Crawling
#1 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
Taking the beer tour was definitely an interesting way to see the Freedom Trail, and learn the history of some of the bars along the trail.
We had so much fun in our small group, had great experiences with each bar and beer, and we learned new info about Boston's vast history and beer.

Bully Boy Distillers
#2 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
Really cool looking bar area, AWESOME drinks (learned they also hand press all juices there as well), and a really sweet area where you can have private parties surrounded by bourbon barrels.
The quality of the spirits produced at Bully Boy is top notch, and the cocktails they craft from these spirits are some of the best i've had, and at a much more reasonable price point than bars.

Boston Pizza Tours
#4 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
Regina's Pizza was the best of the 3 and the bar we visited was a cool piece of history to sit in.
Our first stop was to Modern Pastry- who knew they had a basement done over with pizza and a bar?

Four-Handed Illusions: An Intimate Evening of Laughs & Wonder
#5 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
From the perfect cocktail bar to the intimate performance area (The library) this show was a home run.
The psychic piano bar is both hilarious and amazing you will say over and over “How did they do it!!”.
Improv Asylum
#6 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
The neighborhood - the North End - was great, full of restaurants, bars, pastry shops and other interesting places.
It was very fast-paced and topical - mix of singing, improv, skits, etc.. Nice bar before you go in (and at intermission), but you do need to hold your drink (no tables).
The Black Rose
#7 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
It is an enchanting dark wood pub with a great bar and one of the best Irish Whisky selections in the city.
Love this bar/restaurant!
Cocktails & Cannoli
#8 of 161 Nightlife in Boston
The combination of special drinks (the Moscow Mule was our favorite) at different cool bars and restaurants, a delicious blind Cannoli taste test, tasty gelato and Lulu's scrumptious cupcakes were highlights to a...
Took us to bars we wanted to visit, bakeries (bypassed long lines), and told us history about this area.

We always eat first at the Foundation Room, which gives you access to coat check, the bar before and after the show, and reduces the worry of arriving late etc.
