The Bristol Lounge has informal seating upon entering the restaurant, ideal for waiting for a table and sipping a cocktail before sitting down for your meal. There are also ample couches, benches and chairs in the Four Seasons Hotel Boston lobby.
The bar at The Bristol Lounge is one of the city’s most frequented hotel bars — thanks in part to its spectacular people watching, but mostly because of its creative cocktail menu and tasty bar eats. If you have a reservation in the main dining room, get here a little early and enjoy a cocktail in the trendy bar area. The bar menu features a good variety of eats labeled "Bar Bites" and "Bristol Favourites," so you can choose your food based on your mood. Great items to share on the "Bar Bites" section include the avocado fries (fried avocado served with cilantro dipping sauce) and the chicken meatballs. The "Bristol Favourites" menu feature the favorite items from the main Bristol Lounge dining menu, including the Bristol burger and the crab chowder. Or, save your appetite for the main event and just indulge in one of The Bristol Lounge’s cocktails or wines by the glass. We suggest asking for A Mule in Paris, made up of Michtner’s Rye, Plymouth sloe gin, lemon, honey, absinthe and rosemary.
