Originally called the Bull and Finch Pub, this bar's exterior served as the establishing shots for the sitcom Cheers. When the owner of the Bull and Finch, Thomas Kershaw, was asked for shooting permission by the production company, he charged them $1.

In 2002, the bar changed it's name to Cheers Beacon Hill (named for the Beacon Hill neighborhood). There's another Cheers location (Faneuil Hall) in Boston that has a replica bar, and together the two restaurants pull in millions a year selling Cheers gear.
