At first just a job to put him through school, Sean jokes that with his psychology major, he ended up in the right profession: helping people with their problems and creating a comfortable atmosphere for guests. Originally from Boise, Sean came to Boston looking for that perfect balance of a neighborhood restaurant with loyal regulars, and an innovative craft scene behind the bar. He found exactly that at Ward 8.
Ward 8 opened its doors in the heart of historic Boston in the winter of 2013. Offering comfort-food classics in an industrial-meets-homey space, Ward 8 is focused on a top-notch hospitality program for guests to enjoy anything from snacks, homestyle meals, and of course, delicious craft cocktails.

About the Drink
A whiskey cocktail, the Ward 8 is a historic drink created during the Lomasney campaign around the turn of the century. “This campaign kind of changed the face of Boston with how it evolved. So it’s a celebration cocktail for his Ward 8 district, which is the land that we stand on here. It was that voting district that put him over the top.”
