Marina Bay Ocean Club

May 18th, 2011, 05:05:12 Bobby

Marina Bay Ocean Club (previously Water Works and Marina Bay Beach Club until Boston nightlife mogul Frank DePasquale purchased it) is one of the premier night spots of Boston/Quincy. The thing that really sticks out to me about this place is the average attractiveness of people there. It’s really not comparable to other places in Boston. Although it’s just a seasonal spot open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, it seems like all of the 9s and 10s wait until Marina Bay Ocean Club opens to go out in Boston. I don’t mean to overstate this fact, but if you have the opportunity I would highly recommend checking this spot out for yourself. Another thing I was really impressed with there was how good the music was that was playing. Some of the drawbacks of Marina Bay Ocean Club are definitely the line and the high cover charge. It cant tend to get cliquey in the sense that most people seem to be there in groups and almost come across as regulars but I can see how a place like this could generate repeat business. Also it is more of a bar/lounge spot, there is not a lot of dancing going on at any time which is a shame since they play such good music but there is plenty of room to dance at Marina Bay Ocean Club if your heart desires to do so.
