Best of Boston

2011 Best Dive Bar

TC’s Lounge

There’s something refreshing about TC’s after a Sox game, if you think of its griminess as a filter that keeps the pink hats out and lets the real fans in. These are the people you want to rock the jukebox, share a pitcher, and play Big Buck Hunter with. Besides, nothing screams “dive bar” like calling your signature drink the “OxyContin Shot.” If that’s not class all the way, we don’t know what is.
