Best of Boston

1995 Best Bar, for a Business Deal

Julien Bar at the Hotel Meridien

There’s no more appropriate place to seal the deal than in the Julien Bar, once the reception room for the governors of the Federal Reserve Bank and now the financial district’s most appealing watering hole. But keep it clean: N. C. Wyeth’s murals depicting Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Alexander Hamilton set a lofty tone.
