If you’re a cocktail geek (even if you’re not) and want to try something new, head down to Fort Point in the Seaport, venture downstairs from the Italian restaurant Sportello and you’ll find Drink: A subterranean bar with no reservations, drink menus and a staff passionate on bringing you the finest libation creations.
Opened in 2008 by Barbara Lynch, Drink has since won many Best of Boston awards— including Best Cocktail Bar, a category that didn’t exist in Boston before Drink helped jump-start the craft-cocktail craze.
Once you’ve entered, you’re met with an industrial vibe emphasized by wooden beams, exposed brick and tasteful, dim lighting. Drink’s interior was designed by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz and preserves the history of what once was a wool warehouse. The bartenders may ask for your current mood or for a few flavor profiles to guide them as they handcraft something delicious.
The wait can sometimes be long but definitely worth it! Drink is a Boston staple for enjoying the art of mixology.
Pro tip: Drink serves a limited number of burgers throughout the night and they’re fantastic.
