The Bristol Lounge, located in the Four Seasons Hotel Boston, exudes the same elegance and sophistication as its hotel home. It’s a favorite place for power-lunches, family dining and after-work crowds. Decked out in rich red, black and brown tones, it casually channels the cigar-bar-martini-lunch era, and easily goes from casual day meals to sexy evening affairs with the dim of a light and change of music. The 165-seat restaurant (not including the bar) serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. During the daytime hours, The Bristol Lounge is light and casual, appealing to families needing a kid-friendly location and nearby business execs hosting lunches, who want a casual place to impressive clients. At night, The Bristol Lounge dims the lights and the space turns from bright to dramatic. The low lights against the dark red booths in the bar and the cherry wood tables in The Bristol Lounge make for an intimate atmosphere for diners and intriguing environment for bar-goers. Bonus: The people watching is second-to-none at this Boston institution, so we recommend you get there early and grab a good seat.
Known as Boston’s living room, the restaurant is a favorite among guests and locals alike, bustling seven days a week during all meal periods. The vibrant Bristol Lounge Bar is a favorite after-work destination, serving craft cocktails and an extensive menu of raw bar items and dishes perfect for group and casual get togethers. The Bristol Lounge features an array of seating options to suit all guest needs and preferences—from plush fireside couches to leather banquettes, bar stools and window tables. There is something for everyone in this comfortable, welcoming restaurant. The Bristol Lounge is known for mouthwatering cuisine, but it has gained particular fame with the Bristol Burger, which is repeatedly voted “Best of Boston” and has been the champion of the Boston Burger Bash since its inception. The restaurant is also know for dry aged steaks aged in house to perfection and prepared in a 1,600-degree broiler, as well as for its fresh, handmade gourmet pastas. Every Wednesday night, The Bristol Lounge hosts Burgers & Burgundy Wednesdays, which offers four varieties of the famous Bristol Burger paired with two tastings of Burgundian style wines for just $35. The restaurant also features afternoon tea on weekends, a Sunday breakfast buffet, and “Sundaes on Saturdays,” a Saturday night liquid nitro ice cream buffet.
