|Simple fare, pints and low-key vibe at Bukowski Tavern|
To refuel during and decompress afterward, we’ve got our picks of six hot spots. At Oak Long Bar + Kitchen, you'll be able to pull up a seat at the beautiful copper bar, sip a fine wine and enjoy a flatbread for the cost of dinner elsewhere. Sorellina, another elegant Italian, is a hot spot for drinks and some refined Italian eats at the bar (617-412-4600). We fancy short-story writers will like the Salty Pig around the corner on Dartmouth Street (617-536-6200) for its mid-priced fare of charcuterie and concise list of craft beers.
For Jack Kerouac types, you’ve got two watering holes from which to choose - the casual Globe Bar & Café (617-778-6993) on Boylston Street for basic decor and affordable eats and Bukowski Tavern (617-437-9999), across the street from the Sheraton. It’s a bit of a walk, but a gem with the perfect vibe to get down with some literary speak. And for a late night spot, hit the small-plates and classic cocktail club and restaurant Storyville (617-236-1134).
