Best of Boston

2012 Best Hotel Bar

Avery Bar

Perhaps because of its proximity to turndown service and plush robes, the luxury hotel bar is expected to be both swish and discreet. This formula is executed just so at the Ritz-Carlton’s relaunched cocktail den (previously Jer-Ne), complete with caramel-hued finishes, burnished wood, and, most important, plenty of nooks and crannies for hiding away with a sparkling ginger Negroni and a plate of salumi.
