About the restaurant
dbar is a full service restaurant that seamlessly transforms into a nightclub and lounge as the night goes on. Formally an old school Irish pub filled with mahogany charm, dbar has been renovated into a hip chic hot spot. With warm glowing candles & long leather banquettes, dbar offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere that attracts clientele from Dorchester and surrounding areas. The unique and classy menu inspired by Executive Chef Christopher Coombs changes with the seasons and features the finest and freshest available ingredients throughout the New England area. Most of the menu takes a French twist, but also contains an assortment of comfort foods (such as our famous Veal & Pancetta Bolognaise) and old favorites (like our simple yet delicious Giannone Chicken Under a Brick.)

Shore Leave is our interpretation of a tropical escape through the lens of our love for Boston’s rich dining scene.

Named after a sailor’s leisure time on dry land, Shore Leave’s tropical cocktails take you away from the hustle and bustle. We hope this space, music, and most importantly, our Shore Leave team, make every moment here feel like watching the sun go down with your feet in the sand. Tucked in off the main drag and just below the street in Boston’s South End, Shore Leave is here to bring you along on our everyday vacation.
Reservations are for dining only. We do not take reservations for "just drinks", so cancellation fees will apply. Just drinks-walk in for bar seats! We ID at the door. Underage guests are permitted but not permitted at the bar.

Stop by for live entertainment! Shore Leave hosts The People's Karaoke most Fridays beginning at 10pm and surf rock band The Electric Heaters Thursdays beginning at 8pm. Entertainment varies so call for details!

Enjoy our Garden Bar and Patio in the summer and cozy fireplace seating in the winter.

America is a melting pot like India was over a 1000 years ago. Being in the US offers a chef a lot of exciting possibilities to play with the ingredients that are not commonly found in India. We are availing these opportunities to create an exciting menu that has a blend of traditional favorites like Chicken Tikka Masala and creative dishes like Bengal Fish Curry (made with Salmon that is not usually found in India). The goal is to present a creative, fresh, nutritious, tasty, flavorful and a balanced meal. Like the 21st century India, we are progressive with our cuisine and not bound by the ‘same-old’ mentality.
