Best of Boston

2015 Best Wine Bar


With a wine list offering vinos from smaller producers and a menu call-out to the undervalued wonders of sherry and vermouth, Spoke is a bottlehead’s dream. Casual drinkers will appreciate its warm, accessible vibe; here sparkling wine is served in standard glassware—not flutes—and beer and cocktails are celebrated, not shamed. The relaxed yet refined energy is perfect for a first date, a fancy birthday fete, and everything in between.
