Best Cape Cod Pub to Grab a Brew Thu, 15 Jan 2015 14:13:05 +0000 cape cod pub

Saddle Up for a Pint

With New England rich in English and Irish heritages, it’s no wonder the region is a such a haven for those who like to indulge in some healthy libations.

Sure, Boston taverns are fun. But Cape Cod bars and pubs are always lively, and brimming with a variety of good beers – and good cheer!

Bar and Pub History on Cape Cod

Cape Cod bars also seem to be as much about socializing as they are about the libations. Pub proprietors feel it’s important to make their customers feel at home. You won’t find ear-splitting sound systems, just welcoming destinations where a premium is placed on the ability to carry on a conversation and savor the flavor, body, and aroma of a good beer.

Best Cape Cod Pub

Of course the best Cape Cod pub, in our humble opinion, is situated inside the award-winning Bayside Resort Hotel. Moby Dick Pub is not your typical hotel bar. Step inside and you’ll find the walls papered with REAL dollar bills!

Legend has it that centuries ago fisherman would tack up a dollar before their trip at sea to ensure they would have money for a drink when they returned.

The tradition is kept alive today – although now it’s more of a novelty than a “savings account.” The pub’s bartenders will induct you into the Ceiling Hall of Fame if you sign a dollar bill. Patrons also like to share some words of wisdom on their bill for future patrons.

Get Inducted!

Moby Dick pub at Bayside Resort Hotel is open daily and is a wonderful spot to relax and reconnect with friends and loved ones.  Take advantage of exclusive off-season savings right now at Bayside as they offer affordable Cape Cod hotel packages to suit every occasion and budget.
