2007 BEST Pickup Bar

Foundation Lounge

“Pickup bar” may evoke images of oily, used-car guys with thatches of chest hair bursting from half-buttoned shirts, but you won’t find much of that here. With its mood lighting, sleek furniture, and slinky hip-house music, this Kenmore Square spot promises a sophisticated setting for meeting new people and sharing a drink (or whatever else you might manage to broker).

Hotel Commonwealth, 500 Commonwealth Ave. Boston 617-859-9900
