Seth Freidus

The best sign that a neighborhood is getting hot is when a good cocktail bar opens up, so keep your eye on Hood Park in Charlestown this fall as Seth Freidus is getting ready to open his first solo project, Good Company, at 100 Hood Park Drive. Boston cocktail lovers may already know Freidus from his time at Eastern Standard and as the award-winning bar director at Cambridge’s Alden & Harlow and Waypoint, as well as time spent at Ledger in Salem, Bar Volpe, and Contessa.

Freidus had originally planned to open Good Company sometime in 2020 — even signing a lease on a different space — only to be sidelined by the pandemic, so this news is extra exciting (if a little long overdue). If you love a well-made drink you’ll definitely want to follow the new spot’s progress on Instagram to watch for the opening day and get your eyes and taste buds primed for his inventive flavor combinations and sustainable, farm-to-glass practices.
