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.

If you’re looking for a place where your friends can go enjoy some live music, shoot pool, and enjoy the lively atmosphere of this world famous chain restaurant, then look no further than the Hard Rock Boston. There’s a mini museum of historic Boston music where you can find out a little bit more about the history of the Boston music scene. The food and drinks can be a little pricey so definitely keep that in mind when heading over.

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.

Ames Plow Tavern

April 8th, 2011, 08:04:42 Bobby

Ames Plow Tavern is actually a great little Faneuil Hall bar in my opinion. Ames Plow is a breath of fresh air because it is in the midst of the overpriced tourist traps that Faneuil Hall is riddled with. The places that basically charge more because they can. Ames Plow has really cool bartenders, very good food and its “wicked” cheap! Plus, the patio is right out in the marketplace so in the warmer months it is A1 people watching real estate. Stop in sometime, even if its just for one drink before you go to the one of the other spots around it.
