a craft cocktail "crawl"

For my husbands birthday next month, I've decided to do something different. Rather than just take him to a nice restaurant for dinner, I'm going to book a limo for the evening and then bar hop. We'd like places known for their excellent bartending, but also with good small plates to nosh on. Also, I think relatively spacious bars, so we have a decent chance of finding seats. I realize this won't always happen, but it would be nice to sit some of the time. It will probably be a Friday night.

He loves Eastern Standard, so thats likely to be one stop.

Some others I'm considering: Clink, Clio, the Oak Bar, Meritage.

I think it might be fun to try one of the places on the seaport with a view, perhaps the new Legals.

I'm thinking to stick to the Boston side of the river...I know there are some great bars in Cambridge, so I'm just eliminating it for simplicity.

What places are your favorites?

Eastern Standard
528 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215

Meritage Restaurant
70 Rowes Wharf, Boston, MA 02110
