Sterlings – 60 State St, Boston, MA 02109
Sterling’s is Boston Offices’ favorite choice for the ‘above the action’ feel at Faneuil Hall and nestled in the heart of Boston’s bustling Financial District. Sterling’s is a chic and spacious venue that’s a combination upscale lounge, vintage bar and intimate dining spot. The patio outside features live music and a 360-degree bar that attracts a combination of tourists in flip-flops and T-shirts, well-heeled businessmen and women, and downtown revelers looking for an after-work drink or a night on the town. Sterling’s is the spot for your next downtown event or outing!
The Carrie Nation – 11 Beacon St, Boston, MA 02108
A swanky 1920s-inspired setting, including a separate lounge, for upscale New England fare & drinks. Carrie Nation’s signature cocktails are categorized as “Cops & Robbers,” “Drys & Wets,” “Politicians & Power,” and so on. The Beacon Room overlooks the historic Beacon Street, across from the Boston Athenaeum. Perfect for after-work drinks.
The Black Rose – 160 State St, Boston, MA 02109
This tavern styled upscale pub is one of the older Irish pubs in the area.

Once the live music kicks off you’ll forget all about those midweek blues.

The Merchant – Downtown Crossing Retail Space, 60 Franklin St, Boston, MA 02110
With over 20 beers on tap, this is a brilliant place to bring clients or colleagues. A very relaxed atmosphere with great music and drinks. This is a popular choice for a midweek drink in Boston, so it can form quite a crowd.
