In a city crawling with good pubs, wayfaring sailors still peg leg their way to one neighborhood joint where they are anything but strangers.In a city crawling with good pubs, wayfaring sailors still peg leg their way to one neighborhood joint where they are anything but strangers. For over a century, The Red Hat in Ole Scollay Square has been a friendly haven to seamen, sports fans, and townies in need of a cold brew. Once a speakeasy in Boston's red light district, The Red Hat escaped prohibition scrutiny by maintaining a respectable restaurant by day and a raucous haunt by night. Now a stone’s throw from TD Garden, any sportsman worth his salt knows where to chow down on game day grub. Catching the Bruins or just meeting up with mates? Be sure to slather the house-made buffalo sauce on Red Hat’s famous 10-cent wings. If a booty of hot wings won’t shiver your timbers, pair a pitcher or two with traditional pub fare and test your savvy in a round of team trivia.
Folks, this favorite Bostonian hangout is older than your grandma—in fact, she probably used to party here. From Beer Pong Thursdays to Fish Fry Fridays, there are plenty of events throughout the week to chase away workday blues. So go on, belly up to the bar and grab yourself some sea legs.
