Alibi is located in the "drunk tank" of the former Charles Street Prison, where those arrested for public intoxication were kept overnight -- a unique place to relive a little Boston history (hopefully on better terms). Named for Michael Douglas' arguably sinister, arguably brilliant character in Wall Street (the "greed is good" guy), the "Gordon Gekko" cocktail ($13) is made with Black Maple Hill bourbon, sweet vermouth, bitters, and brandied cherries. But the venue knows who it's catering to -- a more mature crowd who can splurge on one of the most extensive martini menus in the city. But the venue knows who it's catering to -- a more mature crowd who can splurge on one of the most extensive martini menus in the city. Located inside one of the country's oldest hotels, the bar has a classy, old-time atmosphere -- leather-cushioned chairs; wood paneling; men in sports coats. Here you can sample the hotel's famous Boston cream pie, invented at the hotel in the mid-19th century (or better yet, the Boston cream pie martini). Other drinks, like the Dickens Punch (Charles Dickens read A Christmas Carol for the first time on American soil here), also relate to the hotel's history, and the whiskey menu is one of the most impressive in Boston. The 1940s-themed Noir has a swanky, lounge-like feel and draws both an afterwork crowd and late-night revelers with its signature cocktails, tasty small plates, and when the weather is nice, its outdoor patio. The 5 to 7 p.m. happy hour (Monday through Thursday) is especially popular among locals for its discounted drinks and "5-4-3-2-1-0" menu, which offers snacks and small plates from $0 (nuts) to $5 (flatbread pizzas). Signature cocktails, such as the LA Confidential (Stoli peach, Cointreau, peach nectar and champagne, $12) and Black Dahlia (Reyka vodka, triple sec, Pom juice, blackberries and lemon, $12) are inspired by classic film noirs. Sleek and dimly lit, the trendy City Bar offers some of the best cocktails in the city ($11 to $12), made with fresh juices, purees, and house-infused liquors -- the ginger-peach martini (Stolichnaya peach, ginger syrup, and lemon juice, $12) is a consistent crowd pleaser. But it's what the bar lacks that makes it really stand out in Boston -- namely, college students and a TV. A former Federal Reserve bank designed by Jeffery Beers, Bond transforms into one of the Financial District's few lively nightspots after dark. A recent renovation of Bond unearthed the Federal Reserve bank's original iron seal. The W's stylish lobby area, called Living Room, is quiet by day ... ... and a happening bar by night -- a hallmark of the W brand. The cool, modern space has sleek booths, oversize suede chairs, metal curtains, and trickling water panels. But this being Boston, there's also a crackling fire.
