Because you can only watch rhythmic gymnastics for so long before quickly changing the channel when your roommate walks in, take a break from the coverage to partake of the Hawthorne's Olympiad of libations: an internationally inspired beverage for each day of the Games (selected based on the day's events/ matchups), including sure gold medalists like the Jamaican rum Queen's Park Swizzle and a Bols Genever tribute to the Netherlands called the Dutch Oven.

1. The Hawthorne 500A Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA 02215 (Fenway Kenmore)

You'll want to dress to impress at this refined lounge tucked underneath the Hotel Commonwealth, where nationally acclaimed co-owner and bar director Jackson Cannon has built an experience that revolves around thoughtfully crafted cocktails, similar to his beloved sister establishment, Eastern Standard. Warm and comfortable with low tables and plenty of armchairs, drinking at The Hawthorne is almost like sitting in someone’s living room, except you're sipping on exceptional drinks like the Air Mail (a champagne cocktail with white rum, honey, lime and bitters) and small bites like deviled eggs with crispy prosciutto, pickled anchovy, and chorizo toast.
