2008 BEST Pickup Bar
It’s easy to agree on where to mingle if you and your posse are bent on skimming from the same pool, whether that’s just-graduated daddy’s girls (Foundation Lounge), martini-swilling cougars (Cuffs), or baseball-capped frat dudes (Clery’s). Finding a pheromone-drenched locale that covers a variety of predilections is a much taller order. The South End’s Beehive measures up nicely, drawing a clientele as diverse as its all-star team of bartenders and as tasty as the cocktails they stir up. And whether you’re seeking a tattooed hairstylist or a sweater set-clad preppette, the uncharacteristically well-lit (for a bar) space means you’ll get a clear view of your quarry.
