Boston library to serve cocktails

US and World

BOSTON (WIAT) — You can now get a cup of tea, a cocktail, or something to eat at the Boston Public Library. It is all thanks to the Map Room Tea Lounge, a cafe with beverages and small-bite plates.

It boasts of architecture from the 1800s, exposed brick, and lots of maps, but tea-infused cocktails are the feature. They are all inspired by works of literature — with names like “Tequila Mockingbird.” 

The manager of the cafe says it’s truly a one-of-a-kind place. 

Salvatore Degeorge, Manager of the Catered Affair, “What we were hoping to see is bringing different cultures and different people together to have really unique spirits and really unique cuisine and a really interesting environment.”

The cafe is currently open for business, but they plan to hold a grand opening celebration on May 21.
