Warren Tavern circa 1975 (Boston Landmarks Commission image collection, Collection 5210.004, City of Boston Archives, Boston)
Once a swill spot for Paul Revere, this historic watering hole has been serving pints since 1780, and it boasts an interior reminiscent of an old English pub and decor that is decidedly 18th century. The tavern is still a beloved Charlestown gathering place to which spirited crowds gather for (free) live music W-Th. Food is pubbish—the homemade potato chips are a must—and beer is the drink of choice. Open M-F 11 am-1 am, Sa-Su 10 am-1 am.
