Drink has quickly become one of the most popular cocktail bars in Boston. It has been awarded numerous accolades, including being named one of the "World's 50 Best Bars" by Drinks International magazine. The bar is known for its innovative cocktails, which are made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Drink is also known for its extensive spirits selection, which includes over 1,000 different bottles. The interior of Drink, designed by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz, reflects the rough­elegant industrial feel of the Fort Point neighborhood and preserves the fantastic history of this building, once a wool warehouse. Inspired by the importance of community, Drink’s bar weaves throughout the room, creating six corners for guests to comfortably gather and enjoy some great-tasting cocktails.





Drink was founded by Barbara Lynch (@barbaralynchbos) a James Beard Award–winner and Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef Barbara Lynch is regarded as one of the world’s leading chefs and restaurateurs.

While growing up in South Boston, Barbara, at the age of 13, got her first kitchen job cooking at a local rectory. It was in high school, however, that an influential home economics teacher and a job working with Chef Mario Bonello at Boston’s esteemed St. Botolph Club piqued her interest in one day becoming a professional chef. 

During her early twenties, Barbara worked under some of Boston’s greatest culinary talents. After working with Todd English for several years at both Michela’s and Olives, Barbara traveled to Italy where she learned about the country’s cuisine firsthand from local women. She returned to Boston and became the executive chef at Galleria Italiana, bringing national acclaim to the tiny trattoria when she captured Food & Wine's “Ten Best New Chefs in America” award.
