BLEACHER BAR • 82A Lansdowne Street, Boston MA, 02215
Situated beneath the bleachers at America’s most beloved ballpark lies Lansdowne Street’s greatest attraction and favorite neighborhood watering hole. Since 2008, Bleacher Bar has not only provided guests with incredible game day food, drink, and service, but an unprecedented baseball experience year-round. With a garage window that looks directly into the stadium, Bleacher Bar has earned its’ title as one of the most exceptional sports bars in the world -- often referred to “an inside the park homerun.” Previously used as the visiting team’s batting cage for several years in addition to field storage, there’s an intimate, nostalgic vibe about the bar that feels welcoming to all.

The lower level space, equipped with 32 HDTVs, 6 ping pong suites, corn hole, life-size Connect 4, and access to the official visitor’s Fenway Park Batting Cage, serves as a popular scene for events, as well as tourists and locals alike. This multi-level, dual-concept venue is not only the perfect place to enjoy a quality slice and get competitive with friends before, during, or after a Red Sox game, but for any and all occasions.
