Zagat Boston: Ten Hottest Bars Right Now

Last Updated on January 17, 2016 by Coppersmith

Why It’s Hot: You can’t really call this South Boston newcomer that’s housed inside a former copper foundry “just a bar.” It’s the Swiss Army knife of local venues, a massive, multifaceted operation with a 350-seat dining room (with two fixed food trucks serving separate menus), coffee bar and cafe, ground-level patio and rooftop deck. But there’s no doubt that the 100-ft. bar, made of reclaimed wood and ship hull, is the centerpiece of the space.

Must-Drink: You’ll find 12 draft lines, with one rotating tap that spotlights unique micros or benefits local charities. (For the opening, expect a special brew Coppersmith created with Harpoon.) But we love that the cocktail menu features historic drinks that are given modern twists, like the New England Cobbler, which updates the sherry cobbler by using Rainwater Medeira — a now rarely produced lighter, drier variety — mixed with dark rum, simple syrup, orange slice and a raspberry garnish.

Insider Tip: Don’t miss the roof deck, where an Airstream trailer is repurposed as a second bar slinging cocktails and raw-bar eats.
