Bartenders on Boston Street might be one of the most beloved neighborhood watering holes near Union Wharf. Headed up by barkeeps Danny Coker and Dave Spence, the staff at Bartenders puts an emphasis on building connections with customers. For instance, regulars note that it’s not unusual to walk in and find the bartenders engaged in several genuine conversations at once. This friendly, local vibe makes Bartenders a great space to catch the O’s if you can’t make it to the ballpark, especially for big games.
Prices on drinks are reasonable, and the beer selection ranges from cans of Boh to pints of imported microbrews on draft. Check the chalkboard behind the bar for beers on tap, as well as any daily specials. And don’t overlook Bartenders’ unique spins on traditional pub fare: the menu includes grilled cheese sandwiches on pizza dough, Cuban sandwiches with gouda, and a variety of specialty pizzas.
