Lounging at Bar 10 in Copley Square
It’s Friday and you are eyeing the clock, the countdown is on until 5 o’clock when you will be rushing out the door and meeting friends and/co-workers for a drink after work. You’re in Copley Square, where do you go?
Sure, some options come to you easily: Oak LBK, Lolita, Globe, or perhaps a couple of block walk to Newbury St. Ever think about Bar 10, the bar and lounge located in the Westin Copley Place? We never had either, but were pleasantly surprised.
A few reasons we think you should head to Bar 10:
Lounge: While a bar runs along one wall directly as you walk in, it’s the lounge that really separates this space from others in Copley Square. Numerous tables are scattered in the middle of the area while longer tables with adjacent couches easily accommodate a larger group of ten to twelve. They also have plenty of large flat screen tv’s for you sport fans.
Lots of ‘Tinis’: For -tini lovers, Bar 10 boasts a cocktail menu of over ten martinis. (Craft cocktail fans should enter with caution.)
Menu Variety: Very reasonable and appealing prices on a menu filled with items perfect for sharing compliment the lounge atmosphere. Although broken into the familiar (starters, soups & salads, flatbreads, paninis & sandwiches, entrees), this menu offers American fare unlike others in the area.
Mini Cone of Tuna: Their ahi tuna poke appetizer is delicious, fun and easy to eat.
Celery on a Pizza: Their Buffalo Flatbread is just a little but different from everyone else’s, with sweet leeks, micro celery and bacon bits. A great size for sharing, yet large enough to order as a meal.
Burger + Fried Lobster: Their burger is topped with a piece of lobster tempura. Unique and tasty. (Beware: this burger is very large and may be messy.)
Location Location Location: Conveniently located for an after-work drink, a meet up spot before hitting the town, or a great option for late-night snacks.
Bar 10 also features a DJ on Thursday nights, when they open up their back bar for an upbeat evening.
You might not find an Aviation or a Last Word on their cocktail menu, but you will find a great place to sit and relax with a group of friends over some tasty food. All without breaking the bank.
