What a cool place! It's set in an old jail and they kept a lot of the jail cells. The decor is great, music was very good, and drink selection was good. Really enjoyed our time!

Myself and about 15 other people got a table at Alibi Lounge in the Liberty Hotel for New Years Eve. We thought it would be a fun venue to celebrate the new year and it was at a very fair price as compared to some other bars and clubs in Boston. Upon arrival, we got to the cut the entire... More

Tuesday night 10pm when my wife and I arrive back from the game and decide to head into the Alibi for a drink and apps. We take a seat in plain view of bar and servers and wait 15 minutes to be acknowledged, mind you, there were maybe 20 patrons in the bar. We order drinks, which took another 15... More

Great outdoor deck and cool jail motif. Menu a tad bit limited if you are with any kids. Definitely worth a try if in town.

I try and come here once a week. This place is awesome. The drinks are real albeit on the high side, the crowd is cool especially Friday and Saturday night. The bartenders are hot and friendly. It's more of a club then a bar after 11PM. Love it!

The drinks were excellent - masterfully prepared, but a bit pricey and service was not very good. Bar, the basement of a former jail, is really cool. Exposed brick and bars with comfortable couches. The outdoor patio was beautiful with lots of seating. Most people were dressed to impress the evening we were there. In fact, I thought at first... More

The Alibi is a bar located inside the Liberty Hotel. The hotel itself was once a jail and it has a different vibe. The drinks are good and there is a great patio with outside seating but you have to get there early as the place gets really busy.
