Best of Boston 2006 Bar - Berkshires
High on arts, low on nightlife, Western Mass. was never known for its cocktail scene. At least, not until Zinc arrived. Every night, Berkshire sophisticates and tourists mingle beneath a dented tin ceiling at the polished zinc bar for after–(insert-cultural-activity-here) drinks, choosing from among 10 martinis, 10 signature cocktails, and 14 wines by the glass. 56 Church St., Lenox, 413-637-8800, www.bistrozinc.com.
