Though it opens early for Brown Line commuters to grab a piping hot (or cold-brewed) La Colombe coffee, Nighthawk really comes to life after the 5 o’clock whistle. A massive selection of local and regional beers is available alongside a greatest-hits cocktail list curated by Robby Haynes (Analog, The Violet Hour), and depending what’s on the TV, you could wind up eating a free hot dog.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: Depends on whether you’re in the mood for a pickleback or not. Alternatively, the classic cocktails are pretty solid, especially the Nighthawk Manhattan with Cynar.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​Above all, this is a neighborhood joint that happens to serve decent cocktails. Don’t expect much, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
