upper management terribly rude 10/12/2010

Having been there several times for drinks and enjoyed myself for the most part, I was dismayed to find that the upper-management at the office was terribly rude and unhelpful. I called to inquire about what they served and I talked to a man named Stanley and he basically would not give me the time of day. I do not know what he does but it was the worst interaction I have ever had with a human being. more

break the ice on a first date...(or meetup) 1/13/2010

Underrated bar by far, Beacon Hill Pub, offers a convenient location for either pre-gaming, or even end of the night group meet-ups before going home, and also a great venue for blind first dates! I will continue to come back to you - and I will probably gain greater skill at your basketball game while I am at it! Drinks are reasonably priced, you can pick your own music (sharing with the ""date"" - it's a low key way to tap into what type of music they like - which opens up the doors to other conversations). I like this place to begin, or to end a night. I prefer other areas in the location to eat, but truly appreciate Beacon Hill Pub for its unassuming, laidback and truly fun environment. Depending on when you go the back where the jukebox and games are can be empty and you will have it to yourself for some nice one on one action. The bathrooms are back there too - the only thing you need to walk for is the bar but that's why there are pitchers! If you find yourself in Beacon Hill this is a must stop! If the lines and crowds bother you at surrounding bars try here - there will still be a bunch of people but you will be able to spend your time inside drinking, not freezing in a long line. Pros: reasonable prices, dj jukebox, and basketball! Cons: sometimes the games break, tiny tiny bathrooms more

best dive bar in Boston 5/25/2008

I went to college in the area and lived at this bar. I have some of the best memories there. If you're a fan of dive bars, this is the place for you! the service is what you would expect from a dive, but the bartenders have charisma and character. great spot Pros: if you like dives, this is the place for you! more

The Best Dive Bar In Boston 3/2/2008

The Beacon Hill Pub sure gets its fair share of negative reviews but the truth is, if you're young and looking for a good time without damaging your wallet, it's not the worst place in the world! Look at it this way: with beers no more than $5 and a Vodka-RedBull at $6.50 (with cheap vodka, with Grey Goose its $8.50!), the place is a steal. I've never had a bad pour (since they typically overpour anyway.) The crowd can vary: students like typical frat boys (from BU) to intellectuals (from Harvard and MIT), young professionals , and local residents. Video games in the back corner get pretty busy and try and avoid the back bar as much as you can (since thats where mostly everyone congregates). Music is played out of a jukebox and count on hearing ""Don't Stop Believing"" at least once. The staff aren't typically rude, the bouncers aren't pretentious and typically don't question customers unless absolutely necessary, bartenders do a good job getting drinks, just keep in mind it gets busy around 11:00 on weekends... or any day for that matter. Don't be surprised to catch several Under 21 year olds in there since bouncers don't really look at ID's. It's a dive bar and they're proud of it. Yes, they use plastic pints and cups, the floor can be sticky, and the bathrooms are highly questionable (Guys, there isn't a stall so hold your number two if you gotta go) but its one of the best dive bars in Boston and if you're looking for the snobby ""Seen and Be Seen"" place, the BHP isn't it. Its a true Boston bar with one goal in mind: gettin' drunk and having a story to tell later on. BHP you rock! Pros: Cheap alcohol, a varied crowd Cons: Questionable bathrooms more

Best dive in town 12/15/2007

So far, this has been my favorite place to unwind. I walked across the street from Clink to this place and it was like going from night to day. . . or the other way around. It's dark, doesn't smell awesome, and is filled with middle-20-somethings all looking to tie one on. They had pop-shot (which was broke and not keeping score) that our entire group huddled around playing for hours keeping our own score while drowning ourselves in bottled beers. Go in jeans, ripped shirts, backwards hats, whatever you want and don't concern yourself with getting bumped into or beer spilled on you. If you approach it with the right mind-set it's one of the more fun places to go get your drink on. Pros: Cheap drinks, unpretentious crowd Cons: broken video games, kinda smelly, a little crowded more

it's a dump but the beer is cheap 3/1/2007

i always have a good time here. it's a mixed, ""come as you are"" crowd. there's always lots of chyx. the bud and but light pints are cheap, and i can drink a lot of beer. more

Great 9/27/2006

Great Bar, the basket ball game is cool, $2 brewbakers are the best part of the entire bar. Pretty empty during the week. more

Worst Bar 9/12/2006

The bar is dirty. The crowd isn't very friendly. This is how I felt the first time I went, so I figured I was being a snob and gave it another shot. I still don't like it. It won't ever change. After my friend's Sam Adams was served skunked, I felt insulted and have no intention of going back. The only pro for this place is their music. All the best of the early 90s. Pros: Music Cons: Everything else more
