A great idea - like an underground cities guide.

For Boston:

Sonsie - A Newbury street staple for years, it's enjoying a resurgence for some reason. Mostly because there's nowhere else. The scene consists of young to middle age "hipsters" sipping pink cocktails in martini glasses, wearing far too much gel in their hair. The place screams wanna-be. The bar is far too small, and they crowd it with big bar stools so there's even less room to stand. The dining room tables are comfortable, but no amount of comfort could convince me to suffer through the lousy and expensive food and clueless (but attractive) service. Check out Blue Cat Cafe or BarCode around the corner.

Whiskey Park - Hey, it's really dark and all the waiters wear all black (actually, everyone wears all black), that makes it cool, right? No. Expensive drinks, travelling salesmen in big gaudy class rings hitting on waitresses with bad Boston accents. You can't hear anything because the music is too loud and you can't see anything because the lights are too low. There are horror stories about the bartender losing a patron credit card and the manager then accusing that patron of lying. Unacceptable. Go across the street to the bar at Via Matta.
