Best of Boston

2013 Best Irish Pub

James’s Gate

The main purpose of a pub (besides offering good beer, of course) is to unite folks of all ages and backgrounds in a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere. This place does just that, with a flickering fireplace that provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of conversation with friends both old and new.
