Allston’s Alternative Bar Scene: The Perfect Cold Weather Solution

When the weather gets cold, Boston books it to the bars. Nothing beats a few beers with some good friends on a chilly, snowy evening. But when you’ve lived in the Boston area your entire life, the bar scene can get a little blasé…to say the least. Luckily, our feature neighborhood today, that is Allston, brings a little more oomph back into the typical nightlife with its artsy, hip bars and venues. Here’s a few of CoupMe’s top picks. Enjoy and stay warm!

Silhouette Lounge: Located right off Harvard Ave, this has been a neighborhood favorite for some time. It’s been raved about on Yelp for its cheap beer, free popcorn, darts and jukebox. If you’re looking to unwind with some friends and have a great time in a unique atmosphere, this is the place for you!

Sheesha Lounge: Hookah lovers pay attention ’cause Sheesha is where it’s at. With a trendy yet comfortable ambiance, you’re sure to have a pleasant night here. With nearly 20 hookah flavors, including Rainbow Sherbert and Chocolate, there’s something for everyone. So grab some friends and head over to the Sheesha Lounge for a cozy, laid back evening.

Great Scott: Now this place literally has it all- yes live music, a fabulous beer selection and a fun crowd. Head over to this hipster venue when you’re looking to catch a late show or simply make some new friends. Simply put, you’ll never be bored at Great Scott!

White Horse Tavern: Oh, White Horse. You’ll never fail to have a good night at this neighborhood favorite. When the weather’s nice you can cozy up on their outdoor patio (space heaters galore) and if that fails, their indoor bar area is one of the largest around. Whether you’re a wallflower or a dance machine, White Horse has it all. Oh, and they also have free STUMP Trivia on Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, which is an absolute blast every single time.

Tavern in the Square: This is Allston’s newest kid on the block, but it’s already becoming a crowd favorite. Maybe it’s their delicious food or rotating draught beer list– Winter in New England beer sampler, anyone? Or maybe it’s their unbeatable game-day atmosphere; think upscale pub food mixed with big screen TVs and rowdy fans. Hit up this Allston newbie soon to see what the fuss is all about!
