Best of Boston

2013 Best Pickup Bar


A good pickup bar needs two things: a classy atmosphere, and really strong drinks. At Lolita, bartenders pour more than 50 varieties of tequila in a setting more apropos of Dos Equis’s Most Interesting Man in the World (as he says, he does not always drink beer) than frat boys. Try the margaritas—they’ll make you feel both refined and, let’s say, outgoing.
