Best of Boston 2006 Bar, Hotel
City Bar, the Lenox
It has overcome the hotel bar stereotype—that of the elevator music–themed nightcap—and regularly packs in a crush of yuppies and guests. Dim lighting and Azure chef Robert Fathman’s specialty liquors provide all the courage you need to sidle up to the eye candy from room 202. 61 Exeter St., Boston, 617-933-4800, www.citybarboston.com.
