Emerald Lounge Boston

November 25th, 2011, 03:11:20 Bobby

In the Theater District’s beautiful new Revere Hotel, Emerald Lounge Boston is one of the new premier night spots. Open since 2012, this upscale club/lounge brings the Vegas/Miami club feel with it’s beautiful interior and exterior decor. The gold and silver finishes, neon lights and artistic fixtures hanging from the ceiling are what really really set off the interior here. It has a very futuristic, Jetsons-like vibe. Emerald Lounge is very open and spacious and never seems too crowded. In my opinion, the best part about this place is the single bathrooms. You will just have to see why when you go but they are unmatched by any others in Boston. On certain weekend nights, if you get there past 10, you might not get in so go early. Also, to enter, you must go through the back in the hotel. You cannot enter in the front.


Nix’s Mate Boston

November 25th, 2011, 03:11:35 Bobby

Acrossed from Rowe’s Wharf in the Financial District’s Hilton Hotel, Nix’s Mate is a laid back upscale lounge that has been open since 2012. With an attractive crowd of mostly late 20 and 30 somethings inhabiting this place, the decor is simple yet classy. White and light finished wood is the theme throughout, whether it be the floors, bar or back bar. This is a hotel restaurant by day but transforms after dinner on the weekends into a lively nightspot.


Julep Bar Boston

November 25th, 2011, 02:11:16 Bobby

Nestled in the Financial District, Julep Bar Boston has been a premier nightclub/lounge since mid 2012. In the space that was once occupied by Revolution Rock Bar, ownership shut down, revamped and opened up a brand new place. The new feel is classy, understated and modern. The furniture and decor are nice but not over the top. The layout is fairly open and there are two floors, one being ground level and the other being below it. On the top floor, the stairs downstairs are to your immediate right when you walk in. All along the right wall is a VIP lounge area (great to rent out for bachelorette parties). Right past that is the DJ booth at the back right wall and straight ahead at the way back is the bathrooms. To the left when you enter is some more VIP seating and most of the left of Julep is dominated by the large bar that you will most likely be getting drinks at all night. Downstairs the layout is a bit smaller with another smaller bar right in front of you when you reach the bottom of the stairs. There is lounge-style seating all over the place surrounding the outer edges of this room. The top floor can get fairly crowded but with the open layout, people don’t tend to congregate too much in any one spot so you won’t feel claustrophobic as you might in some similar spots.


The Brahmin Boston

November 25th, 2011, 03:11:49 Bobby

In the US, the term Brahmin has been applied to the old, wealthy New England families of British Protestant origin that were influential in the development and leadership of science, arts, culture, politics, trade, and academia. I think the name fits the venue well. I think the name fits this venue just right.

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.


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.

6B Lounge

May 7th, 2011, 06:05:22 Lito

There’s always something happening for all kinds of people at 6B. The wide range of industry nights attract a variety of people who appreciate the company of good friends. It’s a great combination of a classy place with a modern day feel. The price range isn’t outrageous as most people would expect from a nicer place nestled in between Beacon Hill and the Downtown area. The music is especially good on Friday nights where the biggest crowds gather for 90s night. The weekdays here tend to be a lot more subdued than if you go on weekend night I’ve noticed.

Hong Kong Boston

April 8th, 2011, 10:04:28 Bobby

The one thing that may strike you the most about Hong Kong is that from the outside, you would swear it should be a restaurant in Chinatown. Then you walk in and the interior decor and set up has little, if anything to do with Hong Kong. I guess the point is that they’re the only bar around that you can eat Chinese food at while you drink, dance and party. I found it awesome that a guy walks around with $1 teriyaki sticks offering them up to all the patrons like they are franks at the ballpark. One thing to keep in mind is the place can get very crowded but I’d take crowded over empty any day of the week. If you go to Hong Kong, it is a must that you have one of their huge scorpion bowls and you and your friends eat some of the food, which inevitably gets more delicious the more you drink.

MKT Boston

April 8th, 2011, 08:04:50 Bobby

Right on the edge of Faneuil Hall and the Financial District, Market is one of my personal favorite places in this area. The music is decent usually, it’s a really nice set up and has an awesome atmosphere. It has a young stylish crowd and can really fill up so come early. There always seems like there’s pretty good looking girls here and people always seem to be pretty friendly here. Just make sure you don’t wear sneakers! They’re not too strict on jeans or what shirt yo wear but just no sneakers.
