Bay Tower Room
60 State St. Boston; (617) 723-1666
High atop Boston Harbor, the Bay Tower Room is known for rather pricey dining. However, you can sit at the bar to hear elegant piano jazz Tuesday through Saturday, with no cover charge. Friday and Saturday nights feature a jazz quartet, and there is a $6 cover charge if you’re not dining (don’t look for this place among Mine’s restaurant reviews). Still a deal for such elegance, and no extra charge for that great view.

During this period, much of the priory was destroyed to provide stone for his new castle. The priory church was converted into a storehouse for the king’s use’. Then, in 1613, Lord Walsen, the Earl of Dunbar, ransacked what remained of the priory, removing the lead from the roof, the bells and anything else he considered of value. The ship carrying the stolen treasures sank in a storm shortly after leaving Holy Island and most of those on board were drowned. At the time this was looked on as an act of God’s displeasure at his further desecration of the Holy Island.’ As far as I am aware, nothing has yet been removed from the wrecksite and its location has been kept a closely-guarded secret. In fact, the person who allegedly discovered it does not dive anymore. It will certainly be very interesting to see what is recovered from this very historic shipwreck, if it is indeed the same one and if the information I was given is true. Unfortunately, the whole area is swept by very strong tides and with the bottom consisting mainly of sand and stone, it is very doubtful if much has survived. The one-star rating for this area would certainly rise significantly if the Holy Island Wrecksite’ discovery is true, because there are many other ships, both ancient and modern, which must lie on the seabed in this area.
