Clink Restaurant, The Liberty Hotel
Clink Restaurant is the full service, three-meal restaurant in the new Liberty Hotel in Boston. The Liberty, located in the former 1851 historic Charles Street Jail Building has become one of Boston’s newest and most popular hotel and restaurant destinations.
Clink is a casual restaurant that is located adjacent to the hotel’s lobby. Its name is of course derived from “jailhouse slang” which seems appropriate given that the décor surrounding this restaurant is indeed complete with original and authentic cell doors, steel bars, and brick walls.
Unlike the space in its former life however, the restaurant now is a high-energy environment with polished wood floors, contemporary artwork and comfortable furnishings. The menu is broad and eclectic and the chef can be seen at work in the open kitchen. The restaurant also has a bar that serves the hotel lobby and has in itself become a Boston institution, offering classic drinks in its most unusual setting of a repurposed jail! Clink is a unique restaurant in a very unique setting.
