BEST MTV NOSTALGIA
This Mass Ave martini bar resembles its clientele: tall, slender, and unisex. As much a destination for dashing gay gentlemen as it is for women on fruit-infused cocktail benders, Tini boasts one of the better gimmicks on the Avenue: music videos playing on its seven TVs. Artists from Prince to Taylor Swift entertain as bartenders serve up drinks with monikers like Dreamsicle and Purple Raintini. Don’t be surprised to hear a ribald pickup line like “Muddle my blueberries,” but don’t expect the bartender to blush, either.
