An annex of the Boston Center for the Arts, Beehive is a madly buzzing bohemia. Whimsical textiles, wild paintings and other odd objets offset the loft-like restaurant/bar/entertainment venue's exposed-brick grittiness, while some of the city's best-known bartenders mix the drinks. In short, Beehive is a capital-S Scene. The kitchen whips up fun, Mediterranean-tinged nibbles, salads and communal platters to fuel the revelry, plus a few entrées for square-meal sticklers.
