The Green Dragon Tavern has a long and rich history, playing an important part in the freedom of Boston during the War of Independence. Established in 1654, The Green Dragon was a favourite haunt of Paul Revere (whom we considered a close neighbour) and John Hancock (whose brother lived next door!). It has been ratified by Daniel Webster – the famous historian, that it was indeed in the Green Dragon that the plans for the invasion of Lexington and Concord were overheard thus starting the famous ride of Paul Revere.
Today, The Green Dragon still plays host to a diverse and colourful clientele, though the practice of eavesdropping has long since stopped! With a full lunch and dinner menu, it is a popular eatery with visitors to Boston who enjoy dining in a working piece of history! With a full array of Irish-American fare and a wide selection of traditional New England Seafood dishes, The Green Dragon offers a variety of options for even the most discerning palette.
Even with its long and noble history, The Green Dragon is still a vibrant and thriving nightspot and is a firm favourite with college students and young professionals. Indeed, The Green Dragon embodies the essence that is the City of Boston – the delicate blend of rich history and vibrant youthfulness!
