The Gallows
The South End

Situated near the spot where public hangings were performed in colonial times, the Gallows plays up its macabre location with an ominous black crow sign above the door. But inside, the bar has an unassuming vibe and an inventive cocktail list that highlights original concoctions, including liquor infusions, and disappearing old-timey ingredients such as mead and whey. The sangria ironically employs cheap and fruity Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill, while the dinner menu offers an extensive list of boards, burgers and poutine options for top-notch gourmet bar bites.
