Stoddard’s is a top-notch beer bar with a touch of Boston history. Located in one of the few buildings to survive the Great Fire of 1872, the bar was formerly Chandler’s Corset Store, which Stoddard’s pays homage to via a display of encased corsets above the dining area. With exposed brick walls, an ornately carved wooden bar area, copper ceiling and indoor streetlamps, Stoddard’s feels like a classic speakeasy. And while beer is the main draw, the talented bar staff also sling fantastic craft cocktails to pair with a solid menu of refined drinking food.
