Everybody loves a neighborhood bar. When you find one with great food and drinks it just might become your second home. The Audubon, located at 838 Beacon Street, is just that special place! Since 1996, The Audubon has been building its legion of family members by serving everything with love!

We stopped by to catch up with staff and to check out the latest menu items. We were lucky enough to sample a delicious homemade mulled wine and a fantastic craft cocktail called The Lion’s Buck. What makes this cocktail so special? Well, that love also goes into everything that is made, including homemade simple syrups, like vanilla and all spice. They’ve also been smoking mixers for cocktails, like smoked maple syrup! Pretty cool stuff for a neighborhood bar!
