Brendan Behan Pub

378 Center St.
Boston , MA , United States
(617) 522-5386

Bostonians can argue for hours about the city's best Irish pub, but most agree that small, unfussy Behan's is in the top five. At the traditional, wood-paneled bar—where there are no televisions to distract from conversation—bartenders pull perfect pints of Guinness and chat amiably with regulars. On Saturday afternoons, Celtic musicians perform.
