Now that summer is just around the corner, there's no better place to kick back and enjoy a shandy or G&T than the patio at Tremont's Treehouse. For that matter, in the wintertime, there's no better place than Treehouse to nestle down at a wooden table or booth and nurse a porter or whiskey. With a handsome array of beers on tap, a jaunty assortment of live music on the weekends, and an armada of faithful locals, Treehouse is an all-season staple. (Perhaps it's no surprise that Scene's "Best Neighborhood Bar" is located in the "Best Neighborhood" of Tremont.) The patio really is as good as it gets, and for craft beer lovers, the Treehouse happy hour is about as good as it gets. Oh, and don't sleep on the food, which is cheap and yet pretty spectacular.
