One of the most famous boulevards in Boston, Beacon Street stretches throughout the city from the power-suit filled areas of the Financial District all the way to the suburbs. But one of the greatest blocks of this famous stretch is nestled beyond Audubon Circle and the St. Mary’s T stop, where multiple restaurants and stores mingle with elegant brownstones. Despite the high quality of the area, it previously lacked a location for local patrons on the hunt for elegant dining or just an empty barstool. So where does one go for a good cocktail, outdoor dining, and relaxed ambiance? Answer: The Beacon Street Tavern, a comfortable and laid-back restaurant that understands how to balance the bar crowd with the foodies in for the raw bar and daily cheese options.
Decorated with red velvet booths, dripping candles, and black leather, the Beacon Street Tavern manages not to look extremely tacky. Instead, it’s a comfortable and welcoming spot for a drink or meal. Besides the raw bar and cheese selections previously mentioned, the diverse menu offers everything from french fries to an extensive list of fish. If you’re strictly on the search for liquid, we suggest the “painkiller,” a truly pain-killing concoction of dark rum, creme de coconut, fresh orange, and pineapple. After a few of those, you’ll feel ready to do some dancing in the street; Beacon Street to be exact.
