Drinks in Seaport

Boston comes to life in the summer. The warm weather and prolonged sunshine mean farmer’s markets and outdoor dining are back on. But perhaps one of the best parts of summer in the city is the bars.

Many restaurants, bars, and hotels have alfresco dining and drinking experiences that you shouldn’t miss during your stay. Here are a few of Boston’s best bars in the seaport district that can offer you stunning views of the waterfront and the general ambiance of the city. 

Harpoon Brewery

Harpoon Beer Hall and Outdoor seating areas are the perfect places to enjoy a brew in a clean, safe, and above all fun environment. This Boston staple in the seaport district has plenty of fresh beer, cider, seltzer, and delicious food you can enjoy near the waterfront.

While you can’t go wrong visiting the brewery on any day, be on the lookout for the special events and themed festivities the bar hosts for an even more memorable time.

Legal Harborside

Legal Seafood’s flagship property directly on the waterfront has three floors for diners to enjoy, including a promenade deck that is one of a handful of rooftop lounges that stays open year-round.

With a menu full of seafood favorites and delectable drinks, Legal Harborside is the perfect place to enjoy the cool breeze coming off the harbor. Even if the weather isn’t the best, a retractable glass roof will offer protection so you can still admire the views.

Cisco Brewers

Looking for a taste of Nantucket with the views of Boston Seaport District? Cisco Brewers features an outdoor beer garden and a menu full of specialty beers and other beverages from the island. Don’t miss a sip of the fan-favorite Wandering Haze Hazy IPA or one of the seasonal Ales on tap. If you prefer something other than beer, the bar also serves hard ciders and frosé that are perfect to cool you down on a hot summer day.


While not as towering as these other rooftop bars, Trillium has a rooftop patio serving up a selection of its own beer and on-site draft pours. Make sure to try their seasonal brews inspired by local flavors.

The brewery also serves food, so don’t miss out on some of the bar bites available.
