Sound Advice is a craft cocktail bar located inside Arclight Cinemas near the Garden (you’ll spend three minutes smelling popcorn as you travel up various escalators to get here), but you don’t need a movie ticket to get in. You’ll find some very good cocktails here and a dark, swanky space in one of the few bars in Boston that’s not on street level. It’s probably too stuffy to be your regular spot, but a good option when you want something a little fancier before a game or show.
