A carefully crafted libation in the once famed speakeasy? No need to go far. Head right downstairs. Storyville serves up joyful libations in a historic space which once served as a hush-hush speakeasy during the Prohibition Era. "Storyville", as it was called back in the day, became a storied jazz club not long after opening in 1948, attracting legends like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Ella Fitzgerald. Today, Storyville evokes a playfulness and ambience derived from themes of sin and seduction. With a fresh spin on cocktail classics, the electric vibe of this Boston hotspot inspires sipping, lounging and dancing.
