Is Boston America’s Pubbiest Town?

Hey boozers, check out the debate over at the Atlantic regarding the best corner pubs in America. Many folks say Boston’s the city with the best pub culture. One reader crows about our profusion of “small, friendly places that are walking-distance from wherever you are, where you can grab a bite and a pint and make a new friend for an hour.” In Boston, you’ll find watering holes with “no loud music, just friendly people who don’t want to have to deal with parking, but still want to go out for an evening.” The Sevens on Charles Street and Grendel’s Den in Cambridge embody this ideal; the Thirsty Scholar once fit the bill but has been corrupted a bit, apparently, when it got too much buzz thanks to The Social Network. Not name-checked: Cheers.
