Ladies and gentleman, I have a new favorite Brookline bar: Washington Square Tavern.
Though this adorable bar is in the popular Washington Square area, it's unmarked, making it strangely hidden for being directly on the corner right of the Washington and Beacon intersection.
I can't speak for their food, since I only went for drinks, but when I go to a place where their beer, wine and cocktail menu is bigger than their food menu, I'm always impressed.
I started with the cucumber and mint martini, which was perfect. Strong, but not overpowering, with a great flavor. Next, I opted for the pomegranate margarita, which was good, but definitely not my favorite. Regardless, there were plenty of other cocktails -- the pear twist, ginger snap, and grapefruitini -- that I can't wait to go back and try.
But my favorite thing about WST was the decor -- the bar is sizable but cozy, with dim lighting and an adorable bookshelf on the far wall. Even on a Sunday night, most tables were taken, and every seat at the bar was filled. A perfect date spot, or a great, low key bar to grab drinks with friends before heading out to a more crowded spot. Go check it out!
Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend everyone!
