The Liberty Hotel

Situated at the base of Beacon Hill, the Liberty Hotel is a former jail — but don’t let its criminal past scare you off. Romance is perennially in the air in the Yard, an inviting outdoor ceremony spot featuring alluring lights, plenty of greenery, and intimate vibes. The Liberty Bar in the hotel’s rotunda serves as a stylish spot for cocktail hour, while Lydia Shire’s on-site restaurant, Scampo, offers a 50-seat private dining room for foodie couples.
