Knock, knock. There’s a new speakeasy in Boston to explore. 

Next Door is located at 103 Porter St. in East Boston and is officially open for reservations, which are highly recommended for the 30-seat specialty cocktail + raw bar.

Being a speakeasy, there will be some mystery on your first visit, including the location of the front door. (Psst — you can find it inside of Pazza on Porter). 

The intimate space also offers a VIP option to level up your experience with discounts on private events, priority reservation access + first peeks at exclusive events

Go for the vibes, but stay for the show-stopping cocktails — from a drink locked inside a treasure chest to a beverage served up in a lightbulb. 

The drink menu features Boston staples like an After Hours Espresso Martini ($16) + a Modern Mule ($15), in addition to a punch bowl called “Castaways” ($55) and a smokey old fashioned called “Take Your Time” ($17). There’s something for everyone with a wide selection of beer, wine, and high end liquor options

The raw bar includes oysters, ahi tuna tacos ($16) + seafood towers (starting at $60). You can also skip the seafood for a build your own charcuterie board with three meats and three cheeses to share ($28). 

Next Door is now open Thursdays through Sundays from 5 p.m.-1 a.m. Cheers to that. 🥂
