Best of Boston
2002 Best Hotel Bar
Enough with the stuffy, starched-napkin lounges that have for years dominated hotel cocktail scenes. The Westin Hotel’s Bar 10 is dedicated to taking it easy in style. At lunch and after work, a well-heeled crowd sinks back into high-backed leather chairs and sips extra-strength cosmopolitans, picks at the lighter Mediterranean menu, and schmoozes unabashedly. Half hip, half classic, the room and its spot-on service encapsulate what a modern watering hole should be, without missing any of a hotel bar’s romance.
