The Automatic Bar

According to Boston Magazine, "Strong, straightforward drinks, such as a gin martini dirtied with lemon-thyme brine, are the main draw at this retro-styled, vinyl-record-spinning cocktail joint." The Automatic is a funky venue that will remind you of the days of old. It is a great place to meet up with family, friends, and coworkers. If you are looking for a refreshing drink in the warm summer months, we recommend the Blue Frozen Margarita.
