Outstanding bar! The beer selection is amazing. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and friendly. A very neighborhood feel. Nice break from touristy places. If you are a beer drinker this is a must go place.

Nothing fancy about Bukowski’s but that’s part of its charm. Also part of the charm is the semi-surly wait staff. If you can’t find a beer you like here, then you’re not a beer drinker! They also have wine and some hard ciders but don’t...More

Bukowskis on St. Patrick's Day is the same as any other day and they let you know at the door. If you are looking for free shamrock necklaces and green beer, you won't find it here on St. Patty's. We were greeted by a big...More

This is a great dive bar. Nothing fancy, just a local, laid back place to grab a beer and maybe listen to some Boston accents. Good beer selection, and cash only. Get the tater tots!

Well over 100 beers to choose from. Great service. Server was friendly. Small space just off the Hynes convention center and Hilton. Bar type food. Dead authors mug club requires drinking 150 or so different beers in 180 days (see photo).

Excellent beer selection, decent food... itty bitty space. This is a locals place, but welcoming and enjoyable. I can't stress enough how tiny this place is so DO NOT come here with a large group... four is going to be tough to find a spot....More

How do you call yourself a dive bar if your beer prices are the same as everyone elses? I obviously had no clue they only served beer or else I wouldn't have come here, i was craving a mixed drink, like a tequila sunrise, and...More

It is actually a lot bigger than it looks from outside. A trendy hipster/dive bar with a good selection of craft beer and $3.75 pints of PBR.
