The Aquarium may have been onto something, refreshing its outdoor bar and restaurant this year with treats like seafood charcuterie and frosé. What better way to relax after a few hours of tourism than with some al fresco drinking and snacking?
Now another Boston attraction is following suit: The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), located at 25 Harbor Shore Dr. in Boston’s Seaport District, has added an outdoor snack and drink bar, SunBar, for the summer, the museum announced today.
SunBar, which will be open through September, features waterfront views, drinks (including coffee, soft drinks, frosé, local Lord Hobo Brewing Co. beer, and local Archer Roose wine), and light bites (such as cheese, charcuterie, salads, and sandwiches).
A local catering company, the Catered Affair, is behind the new spot. The company works with a variety of Boston-area attractions and venues, and one of its other notable recent openings is the Map Room Tea Lounge at the main branch of the Boston Public Library, featuring tea-infused cocktails.
SunBar is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, although hours may vary due to weather or events at the ICA. Check social media for updates.
