The 10 Best Places for a Bloody Mary in Massachusetts!

Whether you like them extra spicy or complemented by bacon (yes, bacon), Bloody Marys are truly dynamic drinks. And at these Massachusetts restaurants and bars, they serve up a mean cocktail. Here are our favorites. 

1. Common Ground, Arlington, MA

Try a Green Mary at Common Ground for a nice variation on the traditional Bloody Mary. Made with spinach-infused vodka, there are even spinach leaves lining the glass. Don’t worry, they also serve the classic version if you’re not up for trying something new.

2. Cask ‘n Flagon, Boston and Marshfield, MA

Ask about the Bloody Mary Workshop at Cask ‘n Flagon. The add-ons to the classic drink include everything from smoked salt to mini pork sliders. Not a daily occurrence, the regular Bloody Marys are exceptional, too. The house mix is a closely kept secret and part of what makes the drinks so good.

3. Brass Union, Somerville, MA

The Bloody Marys at Brass Union are made from homemade tomato juice. The tomatoes are roasted before being pureed and have a smoked flavor which lends itself to the flavor of the drinks. Delicious any time of day, they’re especially popular at brunch.

4. Bostonia Public House, Boston, MA

Some of the Bloody Marys at Bostonia Public House are akin to a meal. For $18, patrons receive a traditional, albeit large, Bloody Mary, as well as access to their elaborate garnish table. Some items on the table include sliders and ribs. Dunk that in your drink!

5. The Gill Tavern, Gill, MA

Possibly one of the healthier Bloody Marys around, those served at the Gill Tavern start with tomato juice squeezed from their home grown tomatoes. The recipe is classic, but there’s something about a fresh tomato—especially after a long New England winter.

6. Russell House Tavern, Cambridge, MA

The basil-infused vodka featured in the Maria Basilico at Russell House Tavern gives the classic Bloody Mary a whole new flavor. Italian-inspired, it really switches up the drink. Don’t worry, they serve the classic recipe, too, which is equally as tasty.

7. Tryst, Arlington, MA

The habanero-infused vodka in the Tryst Bloody Mary isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, it most definitely requires a food accompaniment to stave off some of the heat. Tryst serves up an excellent brunch, too, so patrons are in luck. Can’t take the heat? Don’t worry. They’ll make you up a classic Bloody Mary instead.

8. The Biltmore Bar & Grille, Newton, MA

Build your own Bloody Mary when you visit the Biltmore Bar & Grille for Sunday brunch. Start with your vodka and mixer, and then add on skewer selections to your heart’s desire.

9. Vorelli’s Restaurant, Provincetown, MA

Known for their Black Angus and Kobe Beef steaks, Vorelli’s Restaurant also serves up what many call the “world’s best Bloody Mary.” Made from vodkas they infuse themselves, ask your server for what is available, and then make your choice. It’s sure to be one of the best you’ve ever had.

10. Michael’s Harborside, Newburyport, MA

Michael’s Harborside features a “Design Your Own Bloody Mary” menu. Check off the kind of vodka you want in your drink, and then select your garnishes, rim, mixers, and spice. The choices are endless and the result is a delicious Bloody Mary you came up with yourself.
