Best of Boston

2012 Best Bar, Nantucket

The Brotherhood of Thieves

This casual spot offers a three-for-one boozing experience: The bustling biergarten, which features beer, wine, and spirits from Nantucket’s own Cisco Brewers; the relaxed upstairs bar, perfect for kicking back with a cocktail mixed with the island’s own Triple Eight Distillery spirits; and the cozy 19th-century-style “whaling bar’ downstairs, where you can chat up the bartender about the band that’s playing—and which scotch to try next.

23 Broad St., Nantucket, 508-228-2551,
