Our favorite places around town to grab a drink outdoors

It's 6pm, you've had a long day at work and you are ready to let loose. What better way to celebrate the end of a stressful work- day than to grab a drink or two with a few co-workers or friends? After a long day, cooped up inside an office, who wants to sit inside? Keep in mind you'll have to order a bite to eat to accompany whatever it is you're sipping on since city law doesn't allow for bars and restaurants to serve liquor on their patios without also serving food. Here's a list of a few of BIRE favorite spots to unwind outdoors and, if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the sunset.


The Terrace at Avenue One

RTP at the Colonnade Hotel- For a brief escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, try the RTP Bacardi Mojito for a little taste of the tropics after work.

The Terrace at Avenue One

Legal Harborside- The third floor offers a wine bar cocktail lounge atmosphere with some of the best views of Boston's skyline and harbor.

Splash Ultra Lounge- Enjoy partying throughout the day as well as the night? Splash offers its Recess party every Saturday between 3 pm and 7pm.

Atlantic Beer Garden- For a mix of sunshine and sea breeze, head over to the waterfront Atlantic Beer Garden. Can't seem to find your favorite brew on their extensive beer list? You can always submit a beer suggestion.
