Boston'sBest Wine Bars
Whats better aftera delicious meal at
one of Bostonsfinest restaurantsthan some after-dinner libations?
Sip Wine Bar& Restaurant
If youre looking for a more modern approach to winebars, look no further than Sip, located on the corner ofAvery and Washington Streets in downtown Boston. Whatyou may notice first about Sip, in contrast to many other
wine bars, is the atmosphere.
Its well lit and is adorned with televisions on the walls.The second thing you may notice is the food and wine
selection, both of which are far beyond what manyexpect, as the menu features extravagant dishes as well
as a wide variety of cocktails and delicious wines.
There is no mincing words here: The Butcher Shop, duringthe afternoon, is exactly what youd expect it to be: a
butcher shop. Its a great place to stop by to snagvarious cuts of beef during the day, then return at night
for their fantastic wine bar selection.
As you may surmise, the menu at the Butcher Shopfeatures a selection of meats, including hot dogs,
sausages, cured meats and more. The wine list, like themenu, isnt long, but features daily specials for thosewho arent willing to empty their wallet for a night
Pairing is the name of the game at Spoke. Unlike whatyoud find at Sip, Spoke is more of what youd expect theclassic wine bar to feel like: no televisions, but a great,
lively atmosphere and a menu focused around cheesesand seafood. If youre in search of the classic wine barexperience around Boston, Spoke may be your best bet.
Its a popular date spot and features an always-changingand rotating menu of drinks and food to perfectly fill
the stomachs and palates of all diners who make thetrek in.
Technically, Troquet is a food and wine boutique, sowhile it may not technically fall under the wine bar
umbrella, Troquets penchant for upscale, hard to find,vintage wine makes it an easy one to include on this list.
Its location within the theater district makes it a greatplace to stop right before or right after seeing a show.Troquet also puts a heavy emphasis on pairing, offering
suggestions on the menu to make it a snap even fornovices.
