Earlier this month, Bushwood Cocktail Club opened in downtown Boston. Whether or not you were alive when the 1980 film Caddyshack premiered, chances are you have seen or at least heard of this cult classic.
Bushwood Country Club is the uppity golf establishment where Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray wreak havoc in the film.
The folks who brought you Finn McCool’s Public House also dreamed up the concept for Bushwood.
“We thought it was a fun and cheeky idea,” owner Todd Smith told Boston.com. “We were going for a concept that people would want to hang out in and spend time with their friends. The reference to Bushwood is a nostalgic lookback.”
Several cocktails are named for Caddyshack‘s most memorable characters. Try a Ty Webb with tequila, Perrier, and lemon; the Judge Smails, made with Fresca and gin; or a rum punch concoction known as a Bishop Pickering.
Not in the mood for liquor? Bushwood also offers a wide array of craft and canned beers.
The menu consists of traditional bar favorites with a twist. The nachos feature sweet corn and Sriracha mascarpone, the fried pickles have a spicy Cajun flair, and the Bushwood burger is served on a potato bun.
The 10-inch pizzas feature a New England style thin, pan-cooked crust and include toppings like country ham, bacon, pepperoni, and ground beef.
