  • 7. Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market

    Years ago this was one of the places to be. It was a hot dance club and lounge where the rich and famous came out to play. Today it's a kareoke club. I would go back just to see how the club has...

  • 9. Bell in Hand Tavern

    The Bell in Hand has always been one of my favorite spots in the Faneuil Hall area. During the day, you can sit by the large open windows and enjoy a fine summers day. At night they usually have a...

    Shear Madness is a comedy whodunit, where the audience gets to solve the crime. The play is set today in a hairstyling salon in the city in which it plays. The landlady Isabel Czerny who lives above...

  • 11. Manray Nightclub

    Named after an Avante Garde artist. This nightclub is not for the faint of heart. Go wearing leather, pvc or a goth costume. The music is awesome to dance to, and the people watching is the best in...

  • 12. House of Blues

    The original House of Blues. It used to be advertised as being at Harvard Square but now they say it is in Cambridge. It is smaller than the other HOBs I have visited but makes up for that by it's...

  • 13. Hard Rock Cafe

    So, I played a show with my band the last monday there and I can say this plays sucks big time !!!. The people who work at this place are a bunch of arrogants starting with the manager. The security...

  • 14. Cask 'n Flagon

    Right across the street from Fenway, this is THE place to be after a game - if you can get in. My buddy and I had one of the best time if our lives the first time we were here. It does close early,...

  • 15. Jillian's

    Jillian's is a one of a kind place for me, and our recent trips back to Boston have included trips to Jillian's with my boyfriends sister and her boyfriend. The great thing about Jillian's is you can...

  • 16. Central Square

    Two great bars have opened in Central Square in the past couple of years that make it hipper than ever without turning it into an annoying Davis Square 'scene' - RIVER GODS on River Street is...

  • 17. Green Dragon

    The Green ragon is a favorite Pub of ours when visiting Boston. My wife and I enjoy the laid back yet fun atmosphere of the place. The bar is a decent size with plenty of bar seating as well as tables...

  • 18. Purple Shamrock

    To the best of my memory there is no dress code for the Purple Shamrock by day or by night. However, past a certain point in the evening they begin to charge a cover price to get in the door. At night...

  • 19. Waltham: Moody Street

    This is a popular spot among the locals, but is located very far away from downtown, so it might not be a good option for tourists staying around the main central areas of Boston and not having a car...

  • 20. Pour House

    As we were walking along Boylston we came across this place. Now, I have read and heard about this place, and I wasn't sure what I was expecting but was very surprised at the down homey atmosphere....

  • 21. The Rack

    Update: The Rack, although still an option in the Virtual Tourist Nightlife drop down list, has gone out of business and the The Hard Rock Cafe has moved in. Depending on when you go, The Rack is...

  • 22. 33 Restaurant & Lounge

    33 is a place where it's not about what you know, it's WHO you know. This is especially the case on the weekends. If you're not on anyone's 'guest list,' then be prepared to stand in line for a...

  • 23. An Tua Nua (formerly Ri Ra)

    BY DAY: A cute place to get food and some drinks with friends for lunch or after work. It is especially nice in warm weather when the large front windows are open to the street and you can watch the...

  • 24. Jake Ivory's

    We were in Boston on a bachelor party... there was 12 of us. We were not walking hand in hand with one another, so we were using louder than normal talking. This, it seems, constituted us being...

  • 25. The Burren

    Very popular place with the locals. There are live bands every night, sometimes even directly from Ireland. Lots of stone structures, making the pub feel authentic. Unfortunately, I missed the Irish...

My pub-crawling days are long past, but rest assured there is plenty to do for night owls around town.  Also helpful is the extension of the T's hours on Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday...
