Spotlight on....

Everyone knows the infamous characters of the Cheers TV show who helped to make the Bull & Finch Pub one of the most happening places in Boston. But who is really behind the magic of this famous bar?

The Hampshire House Cooperation features some of the most talented and dedicated staff members in the city of Boston. Many of the people still working here today were around during the time Cheers was first on the air. Newbies (anyone who has worked her for one to fifteen years) bring their own dedication and talents to the building, helping to enrich and diversify our ever-growing family.
