As Encore Boston Harbor continues to expand its resort offerings, the company announced this week phase one of a new dining and lounge venue, Harbor Lounge, opening on Friday, April 23.
Located off the Garden Lobby, Harbor Lounge will feature locally inspired libations, small plates and shareable dishes, as well as nightly entertainment.
“Our new Harbor Lounge will be the perfect spot to enjoy a beverage and a bite before heading to dinner or hitting the casino floor,” said Brian Gullbrants, Encore Boston Harbor President. “You’ll feel as though a member of the Rat Pack could walk in at any moment while you sip on one of our creative craft cocktails and enjoy the smooth sounds of live music again.”
The extensive cocktail menu includes Boston namesake beverages such as The Charles crafted with Casamigos Mezcal, grapefruit, agave and sea salt, or the Dirty Water featuring olive oil washed Tito’s vodka and olive brine. Additionally, signature drinks will rotate seasonally, beginning with the Royal Flush featuring Encore Bully Boy Gin, St-Germain elderflower liqueur, strawberry and basil, and the Hot Hand Old Fashion with Blanton’s ‘Encore Select’, Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur, angostura, lime and Luxardo cherry. The beverage menu also includes abundant wine, beer and spirit options.
Food items include a serrano ham panini, spring pea hummus and charcuterie and cheese boards with camembert, molé salami, Manchego and more.
Harbor Lounge will be open Thursday from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 3:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. and Sunday from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. Phase two is planned to open later this summer and will expand the dining area and menu options, as well as include a stage, allowing for a more robust entertainment lineup.
