After a full day of experiencing Boston’s many attractions, you may find yourself looking for a fun way to spend your evening. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered; the city’s clubs, pubs, taverns, and theaters await you!
If darts is your thing, this is the place to go! Flight Club offers a Social Darts experience with top-of-the line hospitality, private rooms, and a late night menu. Family-friendly until 6 pm, this is also a great venue for corporate events like team-building.
Formerly an opera house, the Royale is located in the heart of Boston’s theater district. This 1300-person capacity venue offers a mix of cosmopolitan nightclub experiences, world-renowned musical acts, and private events. Club nights bring in a younger crowd of professionals, students, tourists, and locals to enjoy the bumping beats, LED lighting, and energetic dancers.
Jillian’s at Lucky Strike Fenway offers an LED video wall so baseball fans can keep up on the game (across the street) while they polish up their bowling skills. As an homage to The Dude, the original Lucky Strike in Hollywood managed to score original set pieces from the Big Lebowski; the concept has ballooned into 20 US locations, each with its own feel, games, and art.
Baby, it’s cold outside…but it’s okay! The Boston Opera House will warm your soul with its annual performances of the Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker. In addition to the Christmas classic, other upcoming offerings for the 2022-2023 season include Hairspray, Hamilton, Beetlejuice, and My Fair Lady.
For students of history, Boston’s taverns can transport you back to a time when the Sons of Liberty planned and plotted to overthrow the British monarchy. Raise a glass of local brew at the Green Dragon where early American patriots overheard the Redcoats’ plan to march on Lexington and Concord; this eavesdropping incident spurred the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. While eavesdropping is currently discouraged, the tavern will welcome you for Monday comedy night, and live music Tuesday through Sunday.
A Harvard-educated surgeon, Grand Master of the Freemasons, Son of Liberty, and combatant of the Battle of Bunker Hill, Dr. Joseph Warren was killed in action and is the namesake of the oldest tavern in Boston. Established in 1780, the Warren Tavern is one of the first buildings erected after the British burned down much of Charlestown (after two unsuccessful attempts).
Come to the Cabaret, my friend
Club Cafe has been the Back Bay stomping ground for Boston’s LGBTQ+ community since 1983. Located on Columbus Avenue, this venue offers nightly entertainment like Trivia Tuesdays, Karaoke Wednesday, and Broadway Hump Day.
This Art Deco movie palace Coolidge Corner Theatre is dedicated to film culture. Saved by local activism and the vision of a handful of film buffs, the theater became a bastion of arthouse films plus classic revivals and foreign and independent films. It currently boasts four screens and capacity for 700 moviegoers.
Get a room with a view
