Boston’s history was shaped in pubs by clever revolutionaries like Paul Revere, and the Rebel’s Guild in the Revere Hotel pays homage to its namesake by inviting you into the fold. It’s a playful take on the classic Boston Brewhouse, where a chic space is bolstered by reliable pub food, bold spirits, and plenty of local beer to keep the conversation—and the conspiracies—flowing.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner, with creative takes on classic English Pub fare. The lunch menu features a range of essentials you’d expect to find in any respectable Boston barroom grouped into Sandwiches, Burgers, Salads, and Soups. Dinner widens the scope, opening with offerings for the Table, keeping the Burger section, adding full Plates that lean heavily into comfort classics, and finishing with a section for Tastes in case the group can’t decide.
The room has a nightclub feel, with moody chandeliers suspended beneath a black ceiling and candlelit tables surrounded by an eclectic array of chairs—some hyper-modern, some antique, and some magenta. The walls are full of decorative flourishes sure to draw the eye: one is covered in glass bricks punctuated by a triangular window that vaguely recalls images of the Illuminati, while another is covered in a graphic mural depicting the faces of dark revolutionaries in deep blues and purples, emblazoned with ships’ sails, krakens’ tentacles, and the phrase “Join or Die.” A third is crammed with books painted with the faces of anti-British conspirators, beneath which studded leather couches serve as banquettes for dining tables.
While a Colonial cannon is surely the room’s centerpiece, the most dangerous place in the restaurant is surely the bar. Lit from below and covered in candles, it’s the perfect place to begin or end an evening, with a cocktail list as intriguing as the decorations. Grouped by mood and concocted with house-made syrups and infusions, your drink, like Bostonian drinkers of old, will either be Rebellious, Intriguing, Bold, or Defiant. Beers on tap are local and plentiful, and the bottle selection hails from all over. The wine list is short, sweet, and makes the bold (yet fitting) decision to be entirely American, representing recognizable vineyards from across the West coast as well as a few upstarts. A bar menu offers snacks and small plates that represent highlights from the rest of the menu perfect for noshing while you sip.
Rebel’s Guild features a private event space that can accommodate up to 60 souls.
