The Map Room Tea Lounge is a beautiful cocktail bar inside of the main branch of the Boston Public Library. The cocktails are generally tea-infused, but they’re not gimmicky, and they’re not watered-down drinks that will disappoint your friend who barrel-ages bourbon in his kitchen. If you’re showing off Boston to an out-of-towner, take them here to grab a drink and a tartine, as it’s one of the most unique places in the city.
