Where to Drink: Boston


Where You Should Be Drinking: Baldwin and Sons Trading Co. The short answer to the question, ‘Where should you be drinking?’: Woburn, MA Most likely, you’ve never heard of Woburn. If you have, you’re probably even more surprised. We certainly were. We moved from Boston to DC about a year ago, but we like to keep up to date on the Boston cocktail scene. Our friend Dan was in town not too long ago, and as we were...

Where We’ve Been Drinking: Noir in Harvard Square July in Boston is lovely. It felt particularly lovely to us on our most recent visit, because we’d come from the ‘uninhabitable swampland’–to quote a friend–that is DC in high summer. We wanted to soak up as much of the beautiful New England summer as we possibly could on our short visit. Unfortunately (since so much of the time the weather in Boston...

It’s been the location for a handful of friends’ birthday and dissertation parties. You go to a lot of the latter when you live in Boston; you start to feel like you travel in a pretty smart crowd, and like you’re the...

Where we’ve been drinking: Trina’s Starlite Lounge Trina’s and its¬†bartenders are always on the top of all the lists: best bars in Boston, best bartenders, best female bartenders, best neighborhood bars. It was only a fifteen minute walk from our place in Somerville. And, sadly, I very nearly¬†never went there. It could be proximity breeding contempt: ‘It’s right around the corner; I could always go there....
