This is one of the jewels of Boston's popular Irish pub scene. Named after the Irish playwright, it once hosted standing-room-only seisiúns, attended by the likes of Patrick McCabe and JP Donleavy.Behan's is not a fancy place - it's small and dimly lit, with no food on offer - but that's part of its charm. Locals love it because they are encouraged to bring their own food--usually from the various take-out joints that dot Centre Street-- to nibble on in between pints from their incredible beer selection.
