The 10 Best Theme Bars in Massachusetts!

A themed bar adds itself to the entertainment of a night out. In addition to cocktails—or perhaps just a few beers—the ambience a themed bar evokes makes it feel like a night away, rather than just an evening spent downtown. Check out one or more of these Massachusetts themed bars the next time you’re seeking a mini escape.

1. Miracle of Science Bar & Grill, Cambridge, MA

Located near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Miracle of Science Bar & Grill is a testament to the love of everything science. The menu is designed like a periodic table. Science nerds will appreciate the setting.

2. Cheers, Boston, MA

Designed to replicate the bar “where everybody knows your name,” Cheers plays homage to the TV show of the same name. Sit where Woody, Sam, and Diane served up drinks, where Carla insulted many a customer, and where the spinoff for “Frasier” was born.

3. Max Brenner, Boston, MA

Chocolate lovers will feel like they’re in the Willy Wonka factory—but for adults. The Chocolate Bar at Max Brenner mixes up delicious chocolate cocktails, that is reflected by the décor. You’ll go for the drinks, but likely will decide to stay for a chocolate dessert, too.

4. The Hangar Pub and Grill, Amherst, MA

Popular with college students, the Hangar Pub and Grill serves up some of the best fried chicken around. Decked out like an airplane hangar, it is reminiscent of one of the sets on the TV show “Wings.”

Good times #hanger #beer #friends

5. The Baseball Tavern, Boston, MA

Located in proximity to the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, the Baseball Tavern is the perfect place for those with a devotion to the game. From baseball memorabilia to the TVs throughout, the owners have been promoting the sport since 1963.

6. The Sunset Tiki Bar and Grill, Westford, MA

Open seasonally, the Sunset Tiki Bar and Grill operates in the summer where people ski in the winter. Located on the grounds of the Nashoba Valley ski slopes, the bar takes its tropical oasis theme to a whole new level. Parents can bring their kids along and lifeguards will watch them swim. Tiki huts and a pond set the stage.

7. Alibi, Boston, MA

Located inside an old jail, Alibi keeps the tradition going. Celebrities who have visited the bar have their photos on the walls, along with their alibis for where they were when their “crimes” were committed. Cool Hand Cuke and Single White Female are just a couple of the cocktails served.

8. Flip Flops, Holden, MA

Pulling off a surfing theme, everything inside Flip Flops is reminiscent of hot summer days on a surfboard. Live events further enhance the theme, and they take place regardless of the season.

9. Bleacher Bar, Boston, MA

Red Sox fans love Bleacher Bar. Located underneath the Fenway Park bleachers, fans can drink, eat and watch the game. A great view of centerfield is available to customers.

10. The Bushwood Cocktail Club, Boston, MA

This retro-themed bar is outfitted with old-school arcade games and funky vintage decor. This will transport you and all who visit to the year 1980, inspired by the film “Caddyshack.” Enjoy, and make sure to order off the themed menu!
