These are some of your options:

Yvonnes: Yvonne's Boston
JM Curley: jmCurley | 21 Temple Place Boston, Massachusetts
Carrie Nation: Carrie Nation Restaurant and Cocktail Club
Stoddards: Stoddards Food and Ale
Silvertone: Silvertone Bar & Grill
W Lounge: http://www.wboston.com/w-lounge-boston
Highball Lounge: Highball Lounge Boston | Highball Boston
The Tam: https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-tam-boston
Intermission Tavern: Welcome To The Intermission Tavern
Corner Pub: https://www.cornerpubboston.net/

That should keep you occupied for a night I'd say. Good thing also is that after you are done I assume you will want to get some late night food. Chinatown is where you will want to go. Places open later than 2am with good food are:

Peach Farm (Cantonese): Peach Farm
Double Chin (HK style cafe): Double Chin HK Cafe
New Golden Gate (Live Tank seafood): https://www.yelp.com/biz/new-golden-gate-boston-2
Thanks! If I can't decide on a specific spot to go to first, where's a good starting point to wander around?

I just will answer according to what I would do personally: fenway has more than a few bars, lots of people go to Lansdowne street. Brighton Ave and harvard ave in Allston is the spot to be for people in their 20s. Another popular spot is downtown by Faneuil hall (can be fun but also very sloppy and douchey).
Thanks!

The areas with the highest concentrations of bars are:
- Fanueil Hall (pretty touristy)
- Downtown Crossing/FiDi - mostly after work/pretheatre crowds and those bougey lounges that were mentioned
- Seaport - newer, usually upscale, some nice places with outdoor patios/roof decks in good weather
- Fenway/Garden areas - fun for pregame, usually full of hammered bro dudes after the games
- Allston around Washington Street - Lot of college kids
- Cross the river to the squares of Camberville - Central Square, Harvard Square, Davis Square, Porter Square, Union Square, Inman Square - hipster land
- Assembly Row sneaky becoming a good spot with several bars/restaurants opening including the Riverbar which has an awesome firepit
- Burbs but Moody Street in Waltham has a lot going on
What spot would you say is the most well rounded?

I'm 22, and I'm not too picky. I'm open to pretty much anything anything except old man bars and pretentious clubs.

At 22 I think Allston would be a good bet for you. Theres plenty of places to drink and eat on the cheap there. It's got more of a casual vibe than the recently commercialized downtown, Fenway areas.

22 I think I'd send you to Allston specifically around the Harvard Avenue stop on the B Line. Many many bars right around there full of college kids and young professionals.

Davis Square second choice, it also trends young but more mature/hipster vibe. A great neighborhood I would absolutely recommend any visitor to the area check out. More expensive though definitely.
