Best of Boston

2011 Best Lounge

Lucky’s Lounge

A lounge used to be a place where you could mingle with strangers and tie one on at any time of day. Now it’s usually just home to overdressed scenesters and overpriced drinks. But Lucky’s is a throwback to the glory days. A speakeasy-style bar with dim lighting, vintage leather booths, and walls covered in Rat Pack photos, it’s an ode to the three-martini lunch era.
