Sidebar was established in 2001 as a neighborhood bar in the middle of Downtown Boston - a much needed addition to the city’s makeup. Our comfortable atmosphere makes us one of Boston’s best after work bars. Centrally located in the heart of the Hub within 5 minutes of all T lines Sidebar is the most convenient hangout this side of the Mississippi.

Sidebar offers 2 bars, the hottest arcade games, a new jukebox, and many flatscreen T.V.’s to catch the nightly news or the big game.

So stop by and come see us something. We look forward to seeing you soon!
