2001 BEST Hotel Bar

The Oak Bar, Fairmont Copley Plaza

The Oak Bar is, quite simply, everything a hotel bar should be: sexy, formal, and mysterious. It’s a place to wallow in grandeur, where, even if you live right down the road, you feel like a visitor to another time and place. The Edwardian décor, billowing cigar smoke, and background piano tunes are reminiscent of the most elite—dare we say it—gentleman’s club. Except that the ladies’ room is exquisite.
