Best of Boston

2014 Best Bar, Nantucket

The Nautilus

With Fernet flowing from the tap, this new hot spot attracts an industry crowd. But really, anyone who appreciates a well-crafted drink will enjoy bar manager Clinton Terry’s creative takes on classic cocktails and inventive concoctions featuring house-made syrups, tinctures, and bitters. You’d be hard-pressed to find a libation like his "Pickled Pepino"—mezcal, pickled jalapeños, cukes, and smoky salt—anywhere else on ACK.

12 Cambridge St., Nantucket, 508-228-0301,
