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.

Vintage Lounge Boston

April 8th, 2011, 11:04:41 Bobby

Before first going in to Vintage Lounge, I had walked by it a bunch of times without really knowing what it was. When walking in you notice almost an elegant vibe created from the classy decor, the plush seating, the lighting and the sophisticated clientele. The DJ was good, the bartenders were friendly and overall I enjoyed the social atmosphere of the Vintage Lounge.

Battery Park Bar and Lounge

April 8th, 2011, 11:04:55 Bobby

A welcomed new addition to the financial district, Battery Park Bar & Lounge’s name is somewhat deceptive. When I think lounge, I think lounge style seating (plush, comfortable couches, etc.) but there is really just restaurant seating in here. It is really just an upscale sports bar in my opnion. Even though most sports bar will have the sports memorabilia and kitsch all over the place, and this venue does not. The atmosphere and decor are really nice. The bar is sleek and the DJ is usually pretty good. The crowd at Battery Park Bar is usually the financier types starting a little after 5pm and it gets a little younger as it becomes later. Still, more of a professional, upscale group that inhabits this classy, new Boston sports bar.

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!
