Concierge.com's insider take:

This stretch of clubs, bars, and restaurants across from Fenway Park is Boston's one-stop destination for a rowdy night on the town. The Fenway crowd gathers to guzzle beer and watch the game at the two rival sports bars at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Landsdowne Street, Game On! and Cask 'n Flagon—though neither is your standard sports bar. The classic Cask (as the locals know it) has unfortunately been updated—loud music and big-screen HDTVs suspended from the ceiling have been added. Now it attracts club-hopping partygoers, but it's still a popular meeting place. Game On! attracts much the same crowd and is notable for being adjacent to the visiting-team batting cage (if you bring 19 of your closest friends and there's not a game on, you can try it out for a fee). Also, inside the walls of Fenway (with a public entrance on the Lansdowne Street side) is the Bleacher Bar with a decent beer selection and pub grub, and a giant window overlooking center field. The rock club Bill's Bar features local indie and touring rock, metal, and reggae bands, and the House of Blues complex offers large and small stages as well as a less-well-known bar and restaurant, the Front Room, with live music and no admission charge. If you prefer a quieter night and local beer, hit Boston Beer Works a reliable microbrew with decent bar food (try the sweet-potato fries) near the corner of Lansdowne and Brookline Avenue. When deeper hunger strikes, look to celebrity chef Ken Oringer's taqueria, La Verdad for surprisingly authentic Mexican fare (tripe and tongue tacos, even) and huge plastic jugs of aguas frescas. End the night shooting billiards or bowling frames at the multilevel Jillian's entertainment complex alongside a nattily dressed college crowd. Jillian's has a strict dress code Friday and Saturday nights after 8 pm: no athletic wear or sleeveless shirts—updated by Jon Marcus
