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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
