I live in NYC, and when my brother-in-law and his wife visited us a few months ago, we took them to a bar here called Raines Law Room and they loved it. It's one of the "speakeasy" type bars, with a strict door policy that often leads to a long wait but also a lack of crowds once one does get inside. Raines has a sophisticated, even lavish decor, with large comfortable couches. And of course the drinks are great, though expensive.
When we left, they said that they wished there was a place like this in Boston. I'm hoping my fellow Hounds here can help me out. Where are the best places to get a good cocktail? Thanks in advance.
