Boston’s nightlife is eclectic, and there is a venue for everyone. From the grungy greatness of the bars around Fenway, to swanky lounges downtown, anyone can have a good time in our beloved city.
Mood: Football Sundays
Where: Greatest Bar, across from TD garden
Greatest Bar is a sports bar consisting of four floors of epic flat screens, and what else does one need when there’s a game on? It’s a great place (no pun intended) to catch the Pats game and kick a cold one back with your friends. Located right across from the TD Garden, it is pretty much a sports lovers paradise.
Mood: Hangover Brunch
Where: Met Bar, Back Bay
Located on the tourist popular Newbury Street, Met Bar is the perfect brunch spot for those recovering of a nasty hangover from the night before. You can walk in (sunglasses and Advil and all) and enjoy a tasty bloody mary (which you can customize, BTW).
Mood: Fancy AF
Where: B&G Oysters, South End
B&G Oysters is a critically renouned, five star oyster bar. A prime location for a special occasion, or if you’re just feeling like spending a ton of money on some seafood prepared to perfection.
Mood: Broke AF
Coogan’s is the perfect spot for the college student or the unemployed. An Irish pub located downtown, they have one dollar beers, every night of the night, not to mention a sweet dj and dance floor.
Mood: Thirsty Thursdays
Where: Hong Kong, Faneuil Hall
Hong Kong is a grungy, college-style bar located in Faneuil Hall. They host karaoke night every Thursday, so round up your squad and go belt out your favorite tunes.
Mood: Date Night
Where: Legal Harborside, Seaport Distrcit
Legal Harborside is a perfect dining experience for your first date. Although it is ideal for summer because of their rooftop with sweeping views of the harbor, the restaurant downstairs is just as amazing.
Mood: Girls Night
Where: Carrie Nation
In my previous speakeasy article, I dived into detail about Carrie Nation. It is an excellent choice for girls night. Not only is it super unique, it is an excuse to get dressed up because of the exquisite ambiance. The architecture and interior design is amazing, it is a tasteful setup with traditional details but also possessing a modern twist. It is also crawling with handsome men who work on state street (just sayin’). Go enjoy the eclectic drink menu and belt out some tunes with your girls.
