Celebrity sightings may not be quite as common in Boston as they are in New York or Los Angeles, but you can still see stars if you know where to look. When singers, actors, and athletes are in town for concerts, filming, or games, they unwind at some of the best bars in town. Here are some of Boston’s bars with A-list celebrity sightings.

This chic restaurant is a known brunch spot for Tom and Giselle. Sonsie’s bar has seen the faces of Jon Hamm, James Marsden, and other celebrity actors who are filming in Boston. An added bonus is that the tables closest to the street face outward, so diners are in the perfect position to spot celebrities shopping on Newbury Street.
