Massachusetts: L Street Tavern
Irish pubs are pretty much the official bar of Boston, and Good Will Hunting is pretty much the official movie of Boston. That means it doesn’t get more officially Boston than the L Street Tavern, where a scene from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s beloved movie was filmed. The bar had a big party when the movie was nominated for a slew of Oscars, and people still come in from all over the world to shout quotes from the film. You might think this movie magic would make this pub touristy, but somehow, L Street holds onto all of its neighborhood charm with low-key fun and devoted regulars.
Where to find it: 658 East 8th Street, #A, Boston, MA, 02127
