The Packie Bar Review – The Point – Boston MA


The Point – 147 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02108 –

First time I was here was before a Celtics game. One of my buddies comes here all the time. I like The Point because of its location, its close to everything. I never have a problem finding a place to sit at the bar before a game and the food is good. They don’t have the greatest beer selection, but I can get over that. At night on the weekends, the place gets a little wild so finding a place to sit is tough since there is a small area in the bar. I guess they have an upper level. Not sure when it is open though. I know you can rent space there.

I have scheduled this place several times on Bar Crawls around the city. The staff here is awesome. The bartender I had while writing this was a sweet heart blonde girl who was very attentive and didn’t keep me waiting for a drink. There is a nice mix of people who drink here. College kids to old men, which is a cool thing for a bar. They get a lot of regulars in here too which always looks good when reviewing a place. Not sure if there is a cover on weekend nights.

There is no parking except for the MBTA lot across the street at 17 bucks, but the train is right there. Its defiantly a place you would go if you were in town for school work or as a tourist. I would suggest this place to anyone who was looking for good service, good food and a good vibe. For a small place, there are TV’s everywhere, so if you are looking for a place to watch the game, go there. Just get there early because space is limited.
