Best of Boston

2001 Best Bar, South

The Red Lion Inn

The Red Lion’s lure as a hangout is potent, and has been since 1704. The rustic, cozy bar inside has an original old beam ceiling, huge brick fireplace, wide plank floors, and outdoor patio seating. And if you’ve had one too many, there are 15 gorgeous suites upstairs, all with fireplaces and Jacuzzis.
