If you’re searching for your go-to city summer headquarters, look no further than Boston’s Seaport District where Lifted and Kestra, two new destinations located at the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport, provide an urban escape right in the heart of the city.
Sips, sun, and serenity await at Lifted, the first and only rooftop pool bar in the Seaport District. This completely open-air spot will be your new favorite place to relax by the pool while enjoying a refreshing menu of whimsical food and drink. Start with a light poolside snack, maybe Grilled Shishitos with Sea Salt and a Kimchi Emulsion or CSG – Chips with Chipotle Salsa Verde and Guacamole. Sip on an Aperol Spritz, a classic summer staple, or dive into something a bit more complex like the Grapefruit Elderflower Cocktail with Aviation Gin, Barmalade Grapefruit-Elderflower, Chandon Rosé and Q Club Soda. And don’t overlook creative contemporary dishes like the Salted Caramel Lobster Roll or the French Toast Grilled Cheese.
If you’d prefer to play it cool and stay out of the sun, pop into Kestra, located on the first floor of the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport, where the Mediterranean-inspired menu reflects the Seaport District’s creative evolution. Available all day, the offerings include a wide variety of options including mix-and-matchable meze, sandwiches and salads as well as full entrees. The Kestra Sampler features an impressive selection of mouthwatering nibbles like fava bean hummus, moutabal, garlic labneh feta, pickles, warm Syrian bread, and a parsley salad; the Seaport Fish Stew features an abundance of shrimp, clams, mussels, octopus, and monkfish flavored with saffron, fennel, tomato, and vadouvan. And, as you’d expect, the cocktails at Kestra keep up with the cuisine. Start your meal with a Rock Star Martini with Grey Goose Vodka, Chandon Brut, Passoã Passion Fruit Liqueur, Monin Cinnamon and lime, or drink your dessert and order Kestra’s Espresso Martini which combines Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Kahlúa, Tempus Fugit Crème de Cacao, espresso, and Liber & Co. Demerara Syrup.
Whether you’re looking for your spot in the sun or the perfect place to chill (or both, separated by a quick elevator ride), the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport will be your metropolitan oasis for summer 2022 and beyond.
