Whenever I go out with friends I am on a quest to find bars that are not typical or boorish, have a great atmosphere and crowd, have low key tv's & music, (because I have very unique taste as far as what to watch or listen to, plus it takes away from conversation) a cool staff, and of course, a great craft beer selection. Lord Hobo nearly fits this ideal description to a "T." It's a very classy place, yet the crowd is diverse and the bartenders make you feel welcome - happily getting into a long conversation about beer, to small talk, to occasionally comping a drink. I would imagine the selection is one of the best in Boston - focusing on local choices too. We actually said hello to the brew master of Pretty Things when I was there... he was just hanging out. The food was also excellent, I had Filet Mignon tips that melted in my mouth. The presentation and sides were also good and creative. The bill at the end of the day was on the high side, but considering the quality of what I consumed, it was well worth it. Very highly recommended! (1,051 characters)

Great place, excellent background music and an outstanding beer selection. Very hip and chill place, the bartender was knowledgeable, the selection was very well procured with a wide variety and a ton of beers I can't get in NY. Excellent selection on tap and a pretty nice bottle list. Vibe was relaxed and craft beer centric, the bartender was equally willing to pour a stiff drink as he was a tap handle - he was also pouring everyone water at the end of the night, a real pro. Food looked and smelled great, but I didn't have any hence the 3.75 rating. Very cool place, I'll definitely come back. (600 characters)
