Fun at FenwaySep 17, 2021 Blog
The Red Sox are the pride of Boston, and historic Fenway Park—where the team has played since 1912—is a mere 20-minute T ride from the luxury condos at 100 Shawmut. As prime baseball season arrives in September, here’s how to party in style—whether you’re a sports fan or not.
Cask ‘n Flagon | 62 Brookline Avenue
If you’ve scored tickets for a Red Sox game, the Cask ‘n Flagon is a shoo-in. Serving acolytes of beer, sports, and good food since 1969, this bar-restaurant pours perfect pints of Mayflower IPA, served alongside house-smoked BBQ meats and some of the sharpest bar-side sports analysis in the city. No tickets? Book a table and watch the game on one of the multitude of screens—including those out on the patio.
Bleacher Bar | 82A Lansdowne Street
It’s impossible to get closer to the game-day action than at Bleacher Bar, seeing as this unique joint practically sits on the Fenway pitch itself. If you’re here for a Red Sox day, you’ll want to book way in advance, but, in fact, the bar’s open seven days a week, offering everything from domestic lagers to spicy blackberry margaritas. And *whisper it* you needn’t know the first thing about baseball to have a ball here.
House of Blues Boston | 15 Lansdowne Street
When it comes to flexing their vocal cords, Red Sox fans take some beating. If you’ve anything left in your lungs after the game, make a beeline for the legendary House of Blues for blistering live music and Southern-inspired food. They’ve also started screening games here, so if you haven’t bagged yourself a ticket, grab a beer here and buckle up.
Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar | 1310 Boylston Street
A few blocks from Fenway Park—and less than a 10-minute drive from your South End condo—Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar makes a stylish joint for post-game celebrations (or commiserations). Dip into the 100-strong whiskey collection, featuring Macallan 25-year Sherry Oak Cask and 41-year Canadian Club Chronicles, before knocking back a few oysters. If you’re really celebrating, go the whole hog (literally) and order a suckling pig to share.
Tiger Mama | 1363 Boylston Street
Another pre- or post-game restaurant sure to please the entire crew is Tiger Mama, described by its head chef, Tiffani Faison, as a “love letter to Southeast Asia.” What that means is bold, spicy, funky flavors, with dishes like coconut chili shrimp and Singapore street noodles partnered with classic Trader Vic’s Mai Thais (mixed with the bar’s own special rum mix). Win!
And even if winning isn’t everything, you’ll still want to reach for the elegant life you can have at 100 Shawmut. Contact our team to learn more about us.
