Fodor's Expert Review Green Dragon Tavern
Less rowdy than its Faneuil Hall neighbors, this now-Irish bar claims to have housed the "Headquarters of the Revolution" and was the inn where silversmith Paul Revere overheard plans for a British assault on Lexington and Concord, prompting his famous ride. Today it's known more for Irish music—soloists play in the evenings from 5 to 9 Wednesday through Friday, and bands bring it on nightly beginning at 9. Regular lunch and seafood specials are served by a friendly waitstaff. College kids and young professionals tend to crowd the bar in the evenings.
