Welcome to the updated Eater Boston Cocktail Heatmap, highlighting interesting new cocktail destinations in the Boston area. (Venues under a year old are eligible for consideration here, as well as older spots that have made recent, significant changes to their cocktail programs.)

Please note that a number of Boston-area restaurants have resumed dine-in service, and the level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: For updated information on coronavirus cases in the area, please visit the Massachusetts coronavirus website.
Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
This map is updated periodically; the date of the most recent update appears above.Read More
