Whether you’re a cocktail or a mocktail lover, there’s something special about the ritual of going out for drinks. Boston is experiencing a huge wave of unique craft cocktail bars and the focus on innovation and personal connection makes the experience special. Here are some of the best cocktail bars in Boston for you to book your next night out at.

1) Equal Measure


The Eastern Standard bartenders have been legendary for decades and now they’re showcasing their talents at Equal Measure, a chic cocktail bar tucked behind the Eastern Standard restaurant. 


2) Good Company


This unique bar pioneered by industry vet Seth Freidus takes a farm-to-glass approach to cocktails. In addition, enjoy small plates, boozy ice cream, and a curated wine list. 


3) Hecate


This underground speakeasy in an alley in Back Bay is an experience unto itself. The intimate space is decked out in honor of Hecate, the Greek goddess of witchcraft, and the intricate menu is inspired by her legends. 


4) The Wig Shop


A space that was a beloved wig shop for more than 50 years has been turned into a retro bar serving up Instagrammable cocktails and caviar service and regularly popping bottles of champagne.

5) Farmacia


Why order one drink when you can experience a multi-course cocktail menu? At this 9-seat bar, you’ll enjoy four cocktail courses and snacks curated around a unique theme that changes quarterly. 


6) Birds of Paradise




Inspired by travel, the Birds of Paradise menu pulls on global flavors to make beautiful and uniquely flavored cocktails. This is the latest and greatest concept by the acclaimed team behind Baldwin Bar, Blossom Bar, and Ivory Pearl.

7) Next Door


If you’re looking for a speakeasy-style experience (meaning a password and knocks on secret doors), this is the bar for you. Keep your camera open, there will be smoke, fire, and other culinary performances. 


8) Nook


Nestled in Bow Market, this retro cocktail bar offers an extensive menu of culinary cocktails both sweet and savory. Pro tip: every Monday bartenders workshop new drinks and you can get a discount for giving your opinion. 


9) Moon Bar


A tropical thread loops together the cocktails at Moonbar but you’ll find concoctions for all kinds of tastes. You can also order off a menu of small bites, created by the same chef who serves an acclaimed tasting menu at Mooncusser upstairs.
