Brendan Behan Pub

378 Center St.
Boston, MA, 02130, United States
TEL: (617) 522-5386

From the dark wood paneling to the massive beer selection (draught and bottled), Behan's is an authentic Irish pub, so it should come as no surprise that the watering hole is a favorite with locals. In place of TVs, you’ll find conversation and live Irish music every Saturday afternoon. The bartenders pour pints of Guinness alongside other libations, and while Behan's doesn’t serve any food, customers are allowed to bring grub in. Patrons are even allowed to bring in their dog as long as it is on a leash.

Insider Tip:

Behan's is a cash-only establishment, but if you forget, there is an ATM on site with a comparably low fee.
