Where to Watch the Election Results in Boston

It's finally here

View as Map

The time has come. Election Day is upon us, and on Tuesday, November 8, the country will decide whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will serve as the next president of the United States. After three debates and a lengthy (and often ugly) campaign, it is all about to come to a head.

Want to watch the future of the country unfold surrounded by friends, neighbors, and/or strangers while drinking booze (lots of booze) and eating dinner or a snack? A number of Boston-area restaurants, bars, and breweries will be streaming election coverage with audio (and in some cases, serving up election-themed specials) on televisions and projection screens.

From live Twitter streams to Trump-themed cocktails and Clinton-themed snacks, there's a little something for everyone, regardless of who's got your vote.

This map will be updated as more restaurants share their plans for Tuesday night; hit up the tipline if there's an event we've missed.
