Is this place small? Yes. Is it dusty and musty? Yes. Is it hard to find? Yes. If this hasn't put you off then go anyway. Best out of the way, classic cocktail bar ever, hands down. If you like sidecars, manhattans and the like...More

The Boat House is a tiny bar that looks like a speakeasy. Inside it is filled with nautical memorabilia that could fill a museum. Excellent stop-over for a drink in a unique setting.

The Boat House is very compact. There may be room on the upper floor for a small bridal shower but you would have to ask the proprietors. Also, they do not serve food.
