We know you already love Krasi, and they’ve recently added an underground bar called Hecate. Named for the Greek goddess of magic and witchcraft, the bartenders at this bewitching speakeasy will mix up libations like nothing you’ve had in Boston. Don’t bother trying to call or get a reservation, the only way you’ll get a spot at this 24 seat bar is to show up, find the door and please don’t order a vodka soda.
There’s something so romantic and mysterious about a speakeasy. Maybe it’s the history, rooted in 1920s Prohibition-era, of doing something against the rules, maybe it’s the escape room vibes of finding a secret entrance and knowing the password. Whatever the reason, our city has quite a number of discreet spots that serve legal drinks while replicating that speakeasy vibe. Below, find our guide to the best basements, nooks and hidden spots that welcome in-the-know imbibers. And afterwards enjoy some entertainment at one of Boston’s best karaoke bars, best trivia nights or best comedy clubs.
