Cheers!

Cheers
For those of you familiar with the 1980s (and early 90s) U.S. television show, this is the pub on which it is based. Someone who follows Milford Street suggested I visit here. I think they wanted me to go inside, but I don’t get to visit many bars these days.

    We stopped there once on a Boston Movie Tour for an outing with company where I once worked. Once you go down the familiar steps, it’s just a tourist trap bar with so-so food. They changed the name to “Cheers” not that long ago, as it was part of the Hampshire House hotel.
    I highly recommend the movie tour, though.That was a lot of fun.

        The tour is great fun. As you pull up to a site where a movie or TV show was filmed, video screens in front of each passenger drop down to show a scene. The guides keep things lively with trivia games. I keep saying I’m going to take it again…

    Grest shot!
    Cheers! From 1982 to 1993: yes, it was a wonderful funny TV sitcom. Ted Danson aka Sam Malone, and of course Norm, and his beer: a myth 😀
    Ciao

      Interesting. They used to have a bar called Cheers on the waterfront that was made to look like the set. It was while the show was still running.

    Awesome! The actual name is called the Bull & Finch Pub. In 2002, the Bull & Finch Pub was officially renamed “Cheers Beacon Hill”. The show “Cheers” is based on this pub after the producers and directors went to many other pubs for a visit: Where everybody knows your name, you are feel to talk about religion to politics, etc… They kept coming back to the Bull & Finch Pub because they felt “at home” there. Hence, this is were the concept of the show was formed.

    Yes, I’ve spent a lot of time (and money) in this place! My usual was to start off with a MUG of Clam Chow’dah, then a Norm Burger, fries, and Sam Adams beer. By the time I was finished with the job there in Boston, I could literally walk in, and someone would inevitably yell, “Mick!”

    God, I miss that place! Thank you for creating a wonderful memory again!

    Sadly I don´t know the show but I love your shot of the pub it´s based on! 🙂 And I can understand why you didn´t go inside – this time of day there´s only one liquid worth being drunk(?) – and that´s coffee! 😀 Cheers (hehe)!
