Boston's favorite Restaurant & speakeasy



Prohibition may be in the past, but the decadent and secretive quintessence of the ‘20’s is thriving in downtown Boston. Quaintly situated in Beacon Hill, barely a stone’s throw from the State House, is Carrie Nation..


Where ragtime and jazz pipe through the speakers into three classy but comfortable dining spaces as distinct in décor as they are in their names. Learn about Carrie Nation’s outrageous efforts to rid America of liquor while indulging yourself, quite smugly, in a selection of era inspired concoctions.

At Carrie Nation Restaurant and Cocktail Club, you can choose from a sprawling selection of food menus, created by Executive Chef Jason Hanelt, crafted to complement the spirit of the atmosphere and a meticulously poured cocktail. And though the main dining spaces are charming and inviting, slip along the bar to a corridor just beyond, making your way to the red velvet curtain and get ready to get raided. Make sure to have a twenty spot, secret handshake or password and find yourself in Boston’s Original Speakeasy. An elegant, windowless lounge with plush leather seating, dark polished wood, billiards and a full bar, the Speakeasy makes for a relaxed and saucy scene for locals and tourists alike and worthy of the namesakes hatchet wielding notice.

Chef Jason Hanelt

After nearly two decades’ of experience at Gordon Hamersley’s critically acclaimed South End restaurant, Chef Jason Hanelt now brings his immense talent and experience to Boston’s favorite 1920s-themed bistro, Carrie Nation Restaurant & Cocktail Club.

Chef Hanelt has already established signature dishes at the popular Beacon Hill spot, wowing regular patrons and wooing new ones with his remarkable carrot and ginger soup with Maine crab, Asian inspired crispy pork belly, superb smoked salmon salad, mélange of divine duck, as well as classic lobster, steaks and burgers.

Chef Hanelt developed an irrepressible love for sustainable cooking when he moved from Massachusetts to San Francisco at age 21. He embraced the famed Alice Waters’ legacy of the burgeoning farm to table movement, a style that continues to inspire his work today.

After moving back home, Chef Hanelt, now 42, applied his skills under the extraordinary tutelage of Chef Hamersley. He now looks to grow and expand his culinary expertise at Carrie Nation with a revolving menu incorporating the finest seasonal ingredients.

Please call us to arrange a sampling of Chef Hanelt’s brilliant new, and ever evolving menu, followed by a complementary a game of pool in our Speakeasy.
