The Boston Public Library Is Opening A Bar With Book-Inspired Cocktails

Boston's Public Library system was founded in 1852. It is not simply a place to borrow a book or peruse a recent periodical, it also serves as a cultural epicenter.

Central Library in Copley Square has long been host to festivals, exhibits, films, and other learning experiences. In addition to these many functions, it also serves those who may been interested in a meal, or cold beverage.  

The Catered Affair at Central Library in Copley Square offers simple grab-and-go fare at the Newsfeed Cafe as well as more refined menu options at the Courtyard Restaurant, but what if you palate craves something in the middle?

On your next trip to Central Library, stop by the Map Room Tea Lounge. They offer soups, sandwiches and salads with an artisan touch, as well as delicious homemade desserts.

And there's more! Those with an adventurous spirit can try one of the many tea infused cocktails.  

These drinks are inspired by some of the characters and classic novels that surround you while visiting Central Library. For example, the Tequila Mockingbird; made with blood orange hibiscus tea-infused tequila...

The Dorian Gray; a vodka-based drink with blue flower earl gray tea...

Or the Catcher in the Rye; a rum cocktail made with apple berry tea-infused rye.

The Map Room had its soft opening earlier this month and will celebrate its grand opening on May 21.
