Take a good look at the above photo, and now ask yourself what Boston bar this looks like. Any? Because the owners of this Las Vegas venue - dubbed Commonwealth - were hoping it would evoke "distressed Boston pub." Yes, apparently we are what what makes the crowds flock to a newly opened venue in one of the hottest nightlife cities in the world. To its credit, these photos of the interior from Eater Vegas don't include any baked beans, cream pie or clam chowder, and yet the place doesn't exactly scream Hub, either.
So here's the question: do you find non-Boston, Boston-centric eating and drinking establishments to be flattering or a case of identity theft? Leave your thoughts in the comments below or drop them via the tipline.
