A speakeasy-style bar with Caribbean-influenced cocktails has opened in the back room of a West End drinking spot, and it should be popular with both commuters and sports fans.
Eater Boston is reporting that Shelter is now open on Friend Street in the former spillover room for Hurricane O’Reilly's (which is on Canal Street), a short distance from both North Station and TD Garden. The article mentions that the bar, which opened this past Thursday, features drinks that are inspired by those found on islands such as Cuba and Puerto Rico, including daiquiris, mojitos and smoked cocktails. Food will be available from the North East of the Border food truck, which is popping up in the Hurricane O’Reilly's kitchen this summer (expect a variety of tacos), while live jazz will also be featured.
Shelter is open Wednesday through Saturday nights from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The address for Shelter is 237 Friend Street while the address for Hurricane O'Reilly's is 150 Canal Street.
