If you have always wanted to imbibe somewhere off the beaten path that not many people are aware of, we have done all the work for you uncovering some of Boston’s best kept secrets. From the North End to the Financial District, here’s a look at five of the coolest hidden bars in Boston.

Bogie’s Place

Almost as exclusive as its location tucked inside JM Curley in Downtown Crossing, Bogie’s Place (the restaurant within a restaurant) serves up some haute wine finds. Be sure to call ahead for their super limited hours for those only in the know and order up a bottle of 2001 Bryant Family Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, CA). Linger a little longer over a 28-ounce bone-in porterhouse or tomahawk ribeye and you’ll be glad you discovered this hidden gem.

Beneath one of the most talked about bakery meccas in the North End is a hidden gem that not many people are aware of – until now. Meet Modern Underground Bar & Grill located in the subterranean space beneath Modern Pastry on Hanover Street where you can sip on a local brew, take in a Patriots game and enjoy some pub grub at this no-frills, cozy clandestine neighborhood bar.

You might not expect to find a swanky supper club near Downtown Crossing, but the sexy lounge located in the former Locke Ober space offers one of Boston’s most beautiful hidden bars. We recommend trying a Bonus Track “large format” cocktail like the Claret Cup Punch made with rose wine, fresh fruit, cognac, strawberry and a splash of bubbly.

This colorful haute spot in Harvard Square specializes in sake slushies and shareable scorpion buckets in its underground location. Try some Asian street food specialties to go alongside a favorite cocktail like the sweet garlic ginger soy wings or an order of Imperial pork.

Above the bar tucked inside BOND lies the Dom Perignon Lounge, an exclusive haute spot overlooking the main restaurant. Order a bottle of bubbly and take in the gorgeous views of the restaurant decked out with 25-foot vaulted ceilings, opulent crystal chandeliers and a 12-foot rosewood bar in front of a mirrored backdrop. Doesn’t get much more stylish than this.
