Everyone knows that Boston is home to the bar Cheers (where everybody knows your name) but they may not know that Beantown is also home to another bar with sitcom ties. The Regal Beagle, named after the famed neighborhood pub in Three’s Company is now open for business in Brookline.
With fun specialty drinks like “The Dizzy Blonde” (La Favorite Rhum Agricole, fresh lime, and simple syrup, $10) and “The Old Landlord” (Old Overholt rye, Angostura bitters muddled with oranges and cherries, $9) it sounds like a place we’d like to hang out. Their beer list is pretty impressive too! Domestics include Otter Creek Copper Ale, Avery White Rascal, Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA and Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout and there’s even a “Big Boys” section on the list with a 16.9 oz Hacker-Pschorr Hefeweisen and 22 oz servings of BBC Coffeehouse Porter and BBC Steel Rail.
Don’t worry; unlike other bars that pay television shows homage this one isn’t super cheesy. You won’t find bartenders dressed in 70’s garb or show memorabilia hanging on every square inch of wall space. Just check out their website and you can tell that they’re a classy establishment.
From what I can tell, they seem to have taken the best attributes of television’s Regal Beagle and combined them with a fantastic menu that’ll keep you coming back for more. Next time I’m in the area, I’m definitely going to check it out. If you manage to beat me to it, let me know what you think!
