Visited for a beer after the Celtics game. It was busy which is to be expected. The beer was cheap. My bottle had a disgusting smell so I expect it wasn't very clean. It's ok for a swift one but wouldn't of wanted to stay...More

Sullivan's is crowded and cash only, but it's still my favorite place to grab a drink before anything going on at the garden. It's a great dive bar, beer is cheap, and it's convenient.

We had a great time after a hockey game at the Garden. 10 of us were there, and since the bar is so long - maybe the longest bar in Boston! - it is easy to accommodate everyone. Enjoyed it and the people.

Near the garden, cash only- so be prepared and nothing pretentious...but plenty of Tv's and Boston memorabilia... skanky bathrooms and old style backless bar stools-but it's Boston and a decent pour on drinks -

"Sully's" tap is one of the best dive bars on the planet. It's a must for hockey fans. Just a narrow, but block long bar...with reasonable beers, good drinks and a pre-hockey environment that's second to none. Def more Bruin fans, but everyone is welcome....More

Stopped in to get a couple of drinks before going to a show at TD Garden. Never was greeted. Man stocking beer behind bar never acknowledged us. We sat for 5 minutes and got up and left.

We stayed at the HI Express across the street from the bar. It has two entrances, one on Friend Street and one on Canal. It looks much nice on Canal. It has a huge long bar, no tables. They have a good beer selection and...More
