2005 Best Hotel Bar

Cuffs—An Irish Bar

Most Boston hotel bars are party playgrounds for visiting movers and shakers. But for those jaded by the jet set, there’s Cuffs at the Jurys Boston Hotel, where the scene is all seductive ambiance and ruby-red martinis. A superchic local clientele packs the joint every Saturday night, lured by the trickling waterfall, glowing fireplace, and hearty pints of Guinness.
