If you replaced the tap handles with a short-order grill, The Lower Depths might easily double as a diner. This cash only, basement-level establishment features 15 draft lines (and occasionally a cask), as well as a specialty and rare bottle list. The comfortable atmosphere pairs well with a menu of solid comfort food classics like tater tots, hot dogs and “grown-up” grilled cheese. If you’re near Fenway, this is far and away the best beer bar in the area.
