Boston’s Best Bar: Summer Scene – Improper Bostonian, 2018, 2015, 2013

“Fifty years ago, when the first Legal Sea Foods opened in Inman Square, throngs flocked to picnic tables to enjoy the fresh fish.  Now – in a neighborhood that didn’t even exist back then – Legal Sea Foods plays host to a different kind of hot spot: One of summer’s coolest, buzziest bar scenes.  It’s hard to imagine going anywhere else to soak up sunrays and sip sangria when the Harborside outpost offers such stunning vistas of the water from its third-floor rooftop lounge – plus, intentionally or not, live tunes whenever there’s a concern at neighboring Blue Hills Bank Pavilion.  Save concert money: spend it on rose. – Improper Bostonian, 2018

“We didn’t see it coming. Legal Sea Foods was always a reliable restaurant brand, but nobody imagined it could cultivate a seriously hopping social scene. Then came this three-floor titan of the Seaport, the first in a series of one-off Legal concepts. They built it, and we came to wine and dine on an amazing sun-soaked rooftop (with a retractable ceiling for drizzly days) that affords Boston’s best ocean views – bait no one could expect or resist.” – Improper Bostonian, 2015

“Nothing says summer like South Beach. And nothing in Boston feels more like South Beach than this stunning scene in the Seaport District. Walls of windows and a retractable roof ensure that you can comfortably enjoy the spectacular view even on brisk Boston nights. But the scene inside will fight for your attention as swish patrons relax on sleek couches in the main room or on the patio furniture in the side decks. The only way you’ll know you’re not in Miami: surprisingly reasonable prices for cocktails.” – Improper Bostonian, 2013
