This place is without a doubt the best dive bar in Boston. One of my close friends works here…he has an education degree from Boston College, but has been making a lot more money since graduating than he would have as a teacher. The “BHP” has the quote from Star Wars, "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" up on the wall as a badge of honor. Just like you were in Cheers, people do call out the name of some regulars as they walk in. The scene is a weird mix of regulars, hospital employees (it is right across the street from Mass General near the Charles / MGH stop on the redline), and students (not that Boston is a big college town). You will also find countless sports experts ranting and raving over whatever game is on and complaining about which teams didn’t cover the spread. My favorite part is the free Diet Cokes my friend pours for me.
