  • Hours: 5 pm-2 am
There are so many reasons to love the Beehive, the neighborhood "cafe des artistes" located in the underbelly of the Boston Center for the Arts' Cyclorama: its effortless cool, the talented performers it attracts, the literal "buzz" that surrounds it. But we're perhaps most impressed with the major talent on its staff, including four true masters of cocktail craft: Frank Reardon, Cedric Adams, Josh Childs, and Joe McGuirk. With almost 75 years of bartending experience between them, the guys know how to pour a drink. You may not find the quartet working a shift all at once, but catch just one and you can rest assured that your alcohol is in good hands. Jazz, cabaret, and burlesque acts perform most nights of the week. Weekend Jazz brunch 10:30 am to 3 pm.
