Let's Have a Le Havre

A Drink That Won't Sink the Ship

the le havre!

If all drinks were named after cities smashed in WWII, getting tanked would be a somber affair indeed. Don’t fight this delight from Morgan Bigley at Foundry on Elm in Somerville, Massachusetts. The Davis Square spot exudes New England charm and channels taverns of days gone by — perfect for swapping war stories.
