At Time Out, we cover Boston’s bar scene with as much scrutiny and passion as we do our restaurants. That’s because we know that a truly spectacular watering hole is fast becoming a rare and treasured thing. Keeping in line with Time Out Market’s mission to bring the best of the city under one roof, Kelly Coggins’s Time Out Market Bar beverage program highlights the people and places that make Boston a world-class city. While taking inspiration from the menus and beverage programs of the market’s chefs, Coggins — the current president of the U.S. Bartenders Guild’s Boston chapter — has crafted unique cocktails and selected an assortment of food-friendly wines and an all-local beer list. There are two bars conveniently located at opposite ends of the market, and with its killer eats and ample space to stretch out, Time Out Market is the best place for getting drinks with friends before or after a Fenway Park event. (The bars close at midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.)

"Cocktails I've built for summer patio drinking include the Watermelon Wonderful, a tequila and watermelon delight; Green Thumb, a contemporary take on a celery soda featuring Privateer Rum; as well as Before the Maize, featuring corn in two forms," says Coggins. "I have also made sure to create a robust non-alcoholic menu so that you can drink deliciously at Time Out Market all day."
