The elusive hipster sports bar: Parlor has arrived to fill this vast void. The Lilliputian spot, from the folks behind the adjacent Trina’s Starlite Lounge, is a dream for those who appreciate a good whisky as much as a good pass rush. The bartenders make a point to learn your name and your standing drink order; if you dare to root for an opposing team, they’ll even make sure New England-loyal patrons don’t give you too much grief. The magnificent beer menu includes many a local craft brew; classic cocktails (Manhattan, Tom Collins) all ring in under ten bucks. As the bar shares a kitchen with Trina’s, expect the same exquisitely prepared guilty pleasures: griddled dogs, sweet and sour pork nachos and pickle-brined fried chicken strips. Another selling point: the on-point brunch menu (huevos rancheros, chicken on a biscuit), which demands you head to the bar at least an hour before kickoff.
