Review of Mini Bar

So I headed over to MiniBar on Friday night with a gal pal and let me tell ya folks, it's a nice addition to the Prudential/Back Bay scene. We were there pretty early, so we are able to grab a small slice of a sofa and table for some martinis and kobe beef burgers. The crowd around 7:30pm was definitely the after work scene, but you could definitely see it hopping around when we left. There are TVs at the bar for those who don't want to lounge, and if you have a small vip group, there was a room already reserved for what looked like a birthday party. Drinks were reasonable (maritinis ran max of $12-13) and the menu wasn't that expensive, considering all your other options around. The menu also featured snacks (sun chips, anyone?) and playing cards, so if you get bored of the suits around you, you can play some texas hold 'em. I wouldn't recommend going with a large group of people unless you make a reservation, since it's not that large of a venu. But definitely a great place to start a night (Saint is right around the corner) or for a date. Mini Bar is located at 51 Huntington Ave. T stops: Copley, Prudential and Back Bay.
