Storyville Boston

May 18th, 2011, 06:05:34 Bobby

Occupying the space that was once Saint, Storyville Boston is one of Boston’s newest nightlife additions (Oct. 2011) and is really setting the standard for Boston nightlife which seems to be trending a little bit away from the college clubs and towards upscale nightlife with a far more sophisticated clientele looking for something more.

29 Newbury

May 7th, 2011, 06:05:49 Lito

This place certainly gets crowded early being a smaller venue and the ages range from young professionals to established veterans. Be prepared to spend money when you go, just like most upscale restuarant bars in the city, drinks are expensive. Also, Newbury Street and expensive are synonymous. I would highly recommend this place if you want to meet some high class people who certainly can hold a conversation with the best of them.

On Dartmouth St, right in between Boylston and Newbury, is one of the hottest new bars in Boston. It’s called Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar. Lolita has been around for a few months now and just seems to be gaining more steam. I just recently went in there (last weekend) and the place was jumping. […]

Towne Stove Boston

April 8th, 2011, 11:04:46 Bobby

Everyone knows that adding a silent letter to the end of a regular word equals instant trendiness… and in towne’s case, it worked. Towne was a welcome addition to the Boylston bar scene and can definitely be described as a “see and be seen” location. The bouncers will scrutinize your ID to the point that they’ll even have you doubting whether you’re 21+ before you start to wonder who exactly is inside and slowly become impressed with the level of exclusivity. Once inside, towne has a warm, inviting vibe that makes you just want to be there. The cocktail menu has a ton of really interesting sounding combinations, the food is really good and the diverse clientele keeps it classy. Whether you’re a young professional, high-up exec or a total creeper, if you’re looking for an after-work drink spot or somewhere to start your night off right, definitely go to Towne (no pun intended.)

Met Back Bay

April 8th, 2011, 11:04:15 Bobby

Met Back Bay is a chic restaurant bar but in my opinion not necessarily a pickup place or a very social atmosphere per se. The first time I went ot was a Friday night at 12:30 and there were only a couple people at the bar upstairs and maybe 10-15 downstairs at that bar. I would make use of this place to catch up with old friends or to go and have a drink and maybe talk about something of substance, but not really to meet new people or to get rowdy at all because the atmosphere here is very subdued. Besides that, the place is very nice inside, the drinks aren’t cheap and keep in mind Met Back Bay is only open until 1am.

Post 390

April 8th, 2011, 10:04:00 Bobby

Post 390 is a perfect spot for after work drinks but it’s also good when you’re looking to go out but not get too wild. Post390 has a really good drink menu; the mixed drinks are creative (and strong!) and if you’re looking for something more mainstream they make amazing dirty martinis. I honestly think that even their rail vodka is high quality. I have a soft spot for Post especially because their bartender introduced me to the best beer of all time (Rapscallion – a Belgian white made in western mass) and didn’t throw me out once the second one hit me hard. The only drawback was he served them to us in a goblet so we were the only assholes at the bar drinking out of goblets. The food is amazing also, the waiters are a delight (suggesting that I get my martini EXTRA dirty) and the crowd is always classy. I’ve been there a few times and it’s one of my favorite places for the simple fact that you can go for any occasion – on a date, girl’s night out or with a group – and it’ll be a good time.

Cuffs Boston

April 8th, 2011, 10:04:30 Bobby

Cuffs, previously Jury, is located in the Back Bay Hotel. It has most of the qualities of most upscale hotel bar/lounges, hence the beautiful interior design and sultry atmosphere. Despite most of us associating Irish Pubs with less attractive spaces, Cuffs is an Upscale Irish Pub Lounge (New bar category right there.) They stay true to those roots keeping lots of beers on tap and keeping the options wide open in that regard. The crowd is more of a sophisticated younger professional crowd that has a little extra money to spend on drinks and food so they come to Cuffs to rub elbows with like-minded folks.

Lolita Boston

April 8th, 2011, 10:04:14 Bobby

One of the newest additions to the Back Bay and Boston’s nightlife scene, Lolita has fit in very nicely thus far. The fact that Lolita Cocina is a tequila bar should tip you off that this place is a gem. The tequila bar had a ton of different margaritas and the bartenders were really nice because I have severe ADHD and couldn’t make up my mind. It’s a really good date spot because of the dim lighting and music and if you feel awkward theres a shit ton of tequila to ease that awkwardness. It was a Friday night when we went and it wasn’t overly packed but this was right around the time it first opened so that could be why. I had the lolita margarita which was $12 and my friend had the broken heart which was $13. Overall, the reason why I love Lolita Cocina is because of their great atmosphere, interior design and because I am a huge fan of tequila!

Tico Boston

April 8th, 2011, 10:04:22 Lito

Tico Boston is one of the newest spots in Boston (February 2011.) This restaurant bar isn’t like a typical Mexican/Tequila bar that many people are accustomed to. It’s hip, trendy and the establishment is creative with its layout. It’s a nice place to meet new people and the bar area gives off a sultry, sexy feel. Tico Boston has only been open for a short amount of time as of the day this review has been put up but the bar area has seemed to be bustling whenever I, or anyone else I have talked to has gone in there almost to the point of being crowded. So if you are looking for a place with a lively, happening atmosphere then check out Tico Boston in the Back Bay!

Bar 10 Boston

April 8th, 2011, 07:04:14 Bobby

Bar 10 is extremely nice throughout the establishment. I would recommend bringing a date here or coming if you are looking for something more low key with a more sophisticated crowd. The ultra sexy, chic atmosphere is perfect to impress that certain someone. The cozy couches also make it easy to get close to one another without being creepy. The staff at Bar 10 is very attentive and friendly and if you are the type who looks to try new things, try the Crème Brulee Martini. It is very tasty but strong.
