Pubs have long been a staple of New England culture, but gastropubs cater to the shrewder nighttime patron; they often specialize in artisanal dishes, creative cocktails, and craft beers. And because gastropubs serve upscale food in a casual atmosphere, they’re perfect for the large population of young professionals in the area.

Thanks to data from check-in app Swarm, we were able to see which gastropubs were checked into the most by people in Greater Boston from September 1 to September 7.
