"Bell In Hand" Bell in Hand Tavern Tip by Ewingjr98

Bell in Hand Tavern, Boston: 5 reviews and 3 photos

The Bell in Hand has always been one of my favorite spots in the Faneuil Hall area. During the day, you can sit by the large open windows and enjoy a fine summers day. At night they usually have a live band and a huge crowd to keep the place rocking. Nothing fancy, but the Bell in Hand claims to be America's oldest bar, in operation since 1795. Today, due to the prime location, you get a great mix of locals and tourists that always make an evening entertaining.
