We ate dinner here mid-week. It was 3/4 full on arrival but emptied fairly soon after. The drinks and food were fine ( gin cocktail very good) but the service was hurried and it was impossible to get the server's attention. This was rather disappointing...More

This is a nice bar in a nice location but it is too noisy to carry conversations. Drinks were ok. We had planned on eating there but we eventually left as the crowd built up and we could not ear each other.

Our hotel concierge recommended Good Life when we asked for a "casual bar-lounge with good music and a relaxed atmosphere with no college kids". It was a little more like a club in that there were basically no seats and it was standing room only,...More

They were good, but $8 for 6 wings is a bit much. I liked how it came with carrots and celery but still quiet pricey. The bar was big 2 upstairs and one downstairs

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
