The Ghost of Cocktails Past: A Historic Walking Tour
Saturday April 29 | 3:30 – 5:00pm
Meet at South Station
Sponsored by Dewar’s Scotch Whisky
Presented by Brother Cleve
You’ve never seen – or tasted – Boston history like this. Follow Boston legend Brother Cleve as he leads you on a tour of this town’s dive bar dark side from his unique perspective. He’ll show you Chinatown Tiki bars, Combat Zone music venues (and strip clubs), and mobster hangouts like the infamous Blackfriar’s Tavern, site of a syndicate massacre in the ‘70s. Stop for a Dewars & soda at Jacques, where drag performers have entertained crowds for the last nine decades, and hear Brother Cleve’s stories from his drinking days in these same spots forty years ago. You’ll take home a booklet featuring historic Boston dive bar hotspots and still-standing highlights from your adventures on foot. Meet at South Station, exact location confirmed to ticketholders.
