4. Lansdowne Pub 9 Lansdowne St, Boston, MA 02215

The result of the grown-up idea to "offer something more traditional", LP's the newest piece from a group who brought you Lansdowne clubs like the old Avalon, Axis, and more: an Irish pub/old-timey saloon hybrid created by stripping the Jake Ivory piano bar down to its exposed brick walls and installing a 64-foot imported Irish wood bar, working fireplaces, faux candle chandeliers, vintage whiskey posters, a stage, covered outdoor seating, and more bar mirrors per capita than any spot in Boston.

Backed by a substantial food menu that includes five different kinds of tots (FIVE DIFFERENT KINDS OF TOTS!), The Lower Depths' giant craft beer selection, both in bottles and on tap, makes sure that everyone in your party will find something they enjoy -- unless they don't like beer, in which case you're probably not hanging out with them, anyway.

8. Bleacher Bar 82A Lansdowne St, Boston, MA 02215

Take me out to—or rather, underneath—the ball game. Tucked beneath the centerfield seats of historic Fenway Park, Bleacher Bar offers brews and snacks with a scenic view: a ground level vantage point of the baseball diamond. Red Sox fans gather in droves to feast on sandwiches and craft beers before the game; with finished dark wood furnishings and walls emerald enough to match the Green Monster itself, this spacious annex is prime for large groups. Even the men’s bathroom offers a unique experience, as you can contemplate the outfield through a window by the urinals.
