The Immortal Tavern book. Nothing has produced so much happiness as a good Tavern. It was reopened over a century and a half later in the shadow of an elevated railway in the midst of the gritty Boston District of Charlestown. The year was 1972, a decade of change. Few, if any, thought the Tavern would survive in a tough Irish enclave that didn't welcome outsiders. Remarkably, the Tavern prospered from the start and generated a clientele that was so diverse it became one of the most sought out bars in Boston.

Nothing has produced so much happiness as a good Tavern. What a place! You could have the president of Harvard at one end of the bar and Boston's best bank robbers at the other with everyone else in between.

Jim Adams has created an unforgettable cast of characters in this delightful memoirs of his restoration efforts in Charlestown, Massachusetts, and the colorful people - sinners, scoundrels, and saints - from all walks of life who congregated at the Warren Tavern, the centerpiece of the Thompson Triangle, which he brought back to life from Colonial days. My husband loved learning about the history in which the Warren Tavern figures so prominently - it was originally built in 1780, and named in honor of Charlestown's Revolutionary War hero, Joseph Warren. We both loved the book, and don't hesitate to recommend it.

You History buffs should enjoy reading this book! It takes you to the Warren Tavern in Boston and with it comes all of the charactors who went there daily to find out the news of the day or to share what was going on in their lives. It was their Town Hall and had all of the charactors to go with it. If you are fortunate to know the area already, it even adds to the adventures!

Its many famous visitors such as, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, made you wish you were there sitting on one of the 26 bar stools listening and sharing the results of your day. There definitely was a air about the tavern that everyone enjoyed. By day you could come for lunch and by night you needed to make sure that you had your jacket on or you wouldn't be served. If you were fortunate to be there in the re-opening in 1972, you could get a beer for 5 cents, if you purchased lunch!

This memoir retelling the history of Boston's Warren Tavern is delightful. General Joseph Warren was an independence war hero, and his namesake bar carries stories worth telling. Jim Adams takes us through that history adding personal stories mostly from the 1970's to its eventual sale. Criminals dined with politicians as the tavern evolved into Charlestown's unofficial town hall. Life was not easy. Surviving meant knowing how to deal and who to pay off. The people (read Irish) on your side made all the difference. He's been robbed, bombed, and shot at. Strange locals abound. All are colorful and provide the tapestry for an era of restoration before it became cost prohibitive. Quite a story!

Back in the day when I was a student, I struggled to stay awake during history class.I enjoyed learning about the past, but the tedious presentation was mind numbing. History of the Warren Tavern is anything but mind numbing. Story after story, I could actually imagine sitting in the tavern watching the entertaining events unfold. From beginning to end, I was absorbed in the captivating history so well described by Jim Adams.

The Warren Tavern is so beautifully described by Jim Adams that I felt that I was back there again. The memories for those of us who were part of Jim's wonderfully renovated tavern will always be part of the magic he created in dear old Charlesown. Fond memories, great times, good friends and especially Jim himself made this historic tavern unique. He wrote masterfully of an era and a place that many of us will never forget. Jim proved that he had the style as an author as he had as a person (and friend). A great book.

Jim Adams was totally captivating with his recollections of the rebirth of the Warren Tavern. His historical research was impecable - a true history lesson! What a treasured journey he took in rebuilding this piece of history. His vivid storytelling made you feel as if you were sitting at the bar with him immersed in his stories full of characters, successes and heartaches. His gift of storytelling is a true testament to his love of history and everyday life.! What an amazing read!!! Sit back and enjoy Jim's treasured journey! Highly recommended.
The Immortal Tavern by Jim Adams is a delightful read. From the first chapter telling the "wine story" right through to "last call", the book is amusing at times, and highly entertaining. Rich in colorful characters, history, politics and witty storytelling, it was reminiscent of Rick's Club in the movie "Casablanca", and the camaraderie found in "Cheers" and "Mash". It made me wish I could pull up a stool and join in the fun!
