A lovely atmospheric cocktail and food bar.
We queued for about 20 minutes as a party of two (unbooked) An unbooked party of 6 were to wait an hour and a half for a slot but front of house was honest about timings and it was worth the wait. Front of house was a wonderful chap who informed us of our waiting time then later took us to our seats while being chatty and fun.
In an atmospheric room we found ourselves greeted by a young chap who asked us each what sort of drinks we liked and from this made us a cocktail which was bang on the nose.

I ordered a burger (which came medium rare). As the burger is cooked this way it must be meticulously handled to avoid upset stomachs issues. I trusted the staff to prepare it correctly and was rewarded with the best burger of my trip to Boston. My colleague had the swordfish which was also amazing. Our second cocktail was mixed by a very skilled lady (short dark curly hair) and it was a pleasure to watch her work. From a block of transparent ice about a foot cubed she was crushing, cutting, chopping, sawing and shaking all the drinks at amazing speed.
Watching her work was as fun as the food and drink itself.

Highly recommended if you get the chance. It was a shining star in our visit to Boston.

Had to wait about 30 minutes to get in but once we made it Paul was awesome at helping us discover some perfect drinks. Our bartender Wren was amazing... best bartender we have ever seen. Thought about asking for her autograph! Her colleague Megan was the best! Would highly recommend to those who appreciate a great drinking experience with other ladies and gentlemen.

We had some amazing cocktails made for us here. It is a fun concept to tell the bartender what you like and see what they deliver.

We hadn't planned to visit Drink on our trip to Boston, but we are so glad we did. I loved the atmosphere and service was very good.

We went in at about 9pm on a Tuesday night, the place was half full. We got seats at one of the two bar areas really quickly and our cocktail order was taken, water served. Two people behind the bar area where we were seated moved at incredibly high speed- squatting down over and over to take bottles out if the fridge, move stuff around, pour etc. I've never seen such sustained movement with complex tasks carried out at that speed before. It was theatrical to watch. We sat for over 20 minutes waiting for any sign of our drinks arriving before giving up and leaving. That's the thing- how do you explain this? I'm genuinely puzzled by what I saw.
