Fodor's Review

The country's oldest continuously operating pub (founded 1795) is named for the occupation of its original owner, town crier Jimmy Wilson. On the edge of Faneuil Hall, this straightforward pub has live music every night of the week downstairs. If you're brave, sing forth at the Tuesday-night karaoke. There are DJs on Friday and Saturday upstairs.
