Perched atop the popular Envoy Hotel, this trendy eighth-floor eatery and bar offers small bites and upscale cocktails from the comfort of stylish lounge seating—but its real draw is a dazzling skyline view that makes wait times worth it. Come for the skyline and sunset views over the Fort Point Channel, and stay for the Seaport Sangria and tunes as you mingle with The Seaport’s in-crowd. Pro tip: Go big and reserve the firepit table.
