A few months back I took a work trip to Boston. From my limited experience up there, the main drags are pretty devoid of the dive scene. Most places are modern, well-lit, and pricey. But on the way into town, I spotted a hole-in-the-wall bar right across the street from the hotel: Bukowski Tavern.
The place is by no means unknown. It’s not really that old, either. But this one-and-a-half room cross between a dive and a craft beer bar if a great place to eat some awesome greasy food, drink local beer, and use as much profanity as you god damn well please.
Notes: cash only, ATM in the front. It’s a little pricey, but so is everything else in the area. The late-night food specials can’t be beat. Check out the menu pictures below from July 2016.
