Downtown Crossing


Barracuda is a bar hidden down a Downtown Boston alley and off street-level (above it, not below). It feels kind of like a secret - not like a speakeasy, but like a pop-up pub that just stayed there. It has a menu of bar seafood, but almost no one orders from it, because this is mostly just a comfortable place to drink beers, relax, and catch-up with friends - or meet new ones, since it’s so tiny and easy-going that talking to strangers is almost inevitable.
