From the talented team behind bustling Kenmore Square mainstays, Eastern Standard and Island Creek Oyster bar, comes The Hawthorne. Nestled just below grade at the Hotel Commonwealth, the super stylish bar and lounge combines the finest elements of the craft cocktail movement with a heightened focus on hospitality, comfort and geniality – and, of course, a carefully curated menu of finger foods and sweet nibbles.

The bar is the centerpiece of this multi-leveled cocktail haven. The expansive cocktail menu, filled with nouveau classics, rediscovered gems and daily changing creations, can be sipped and savored at either of two bars or a convivial communal table. More intimate groups can seek out plush armchairs in cozy corners or congregate in lounge areas that feel like a friend’s (flawlessly appointed) living room.
