Alibi Bar and Lounge

'Alibi Bar and Lounge is a the loungy space inside Boston's brand-new Liberty Hotel, once the Charles Street Jail. Alibi plays up its former life, with floors that have the original markings where the cells used to be, and solid brick walls that alternate with prison bars. Despite the dark motif, the space is well lit and cozy, with big open windows facing charming Charles Street. Popular orders include the sweet Jail Bait, a pomegranate mojito, and truffle french fries with Parmesan—a fine late-night nosh.' - www.concierge.com Hours of Operation: Nightly: 5:00pm - 2:00am (light menu served & bottle service available. Weather permitting, our patio is open at 2PM Friday-Sunday.

"The patio makes this place, but it ends there. The food is expensive and mediocre. Cocktails are okay. Wine list is pretty good. Beer list is horrible. Service is atrocious."

"The waitress we had was great and super helpful! We shared an app and a small pizza. The food was delicious but there is a very limited menu. We tried the calamari and the caprese style mozzarella app. Then we had a pizza and one of the specialty breads. It was all very delicious but we wished there were more choices for apps as the menu was perfect for sharing."

"It was a great place for a group of girls to meet for drinks after work. The server was wonderful. A glass of wine broke, and she came over immediately to clean up the area and brought a new glass free of charge."
