Located next door to Rare, Forbes Travel Guide’s highest-rated Boston steakhouse, Rare Lounge offers seamless transitions between pre-dinner drinks, tantalizing bites and after-dinner nightcaps. The lounge features classic and new interpretations of popular cocktails, approachable menu items and a fresh, locally sourced raw bar.
With its stylish and contemporary design and alluring black-and-white photography, Rare Lounge exudes a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere providing guests with an intimate alternative to Rare Steakhouse’s elegant dining room.
Pass through the gilded wood-paneled doors and slide into one of Rare Lounge’s signature cream leather chairs with plush chocolate upholstery — either at the well-appointed bar or at an opulent quartz cocktail table.
Start with light snacks such as tartares and cones; opt for heartier comfort foods like the steakhouse burger, pigs in a blanket and a jumbo lump crab cake; or end the evening with warm chocolate cake and whiskey ice cream.
The cocktail menu presents well-balanced, fresh flavors and ingredients complemented by a selection of premium curated spirits.
Rare Lounge favors flavors that are surprising, fun and unexpected. The decadent truffle grilled cheese, a gooey delight with Gruyère, aged cheddar and truffle aioli — created by Executive Chef Megan Vaughan — pairs perfectly with the Wild Wood, a Rare Lounge spin on the classic whiskey sour with Makers Mark “Encore Select” cask-strength bourbon whiskey.
For those seeking truly extraordinary sips, Rare Lounge’s limited selections include unique and aged bourbon, rare scotch and rye, specialty tequila and prized Japanese whisky.
Meet best friends, make new ones and begin — or end — every Everett night with an unforgettable Rare Lounge experience.
