    Middlesex Lounge - Club | Lounge | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review If variety is the spice of life, then Middlesex Lounge and its impressive selection of international DJs are adding some serious flavor to the Cambridge area. Patrons shouldn’t be fooled by the tiny bar and modest high-ceilinged lounge that doubles as a mellow local eatery by day – at 10pm, the line starts forming, the ... more

    Cuchi Cuchi - Cocktail Bar | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review A spirited and ultra-feminine mélange of classic French and Jazz Age styles, Cuchi Cuchi, named for Charo’s trademark expression, is a charming and slightly kooky cocktail bar popular with fun-loving bachelorettes and birthday girls. Bejeweled and feathered hostesses dolled up like flappers and showgirls usher the animated ... more

    Forum - Bar | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Right in the thick of always-booming Boylston Street, slick and trendy Forum provides a sexy respite from the hustle and bustle of one of Boston’s busiest thoroughfares. During the week, sophisticated 9-to-5ers still in ties and heels unwind at the large center bar, sipping craft cocktails or signature “fusions” like the ... more

    Cask'n Flagon - Nightclub | Restaurant | Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review So close to Fenway that cheers echo on its outdoor patio, Cask’n Flagon leads a double life as rowdy sports bar for red- and blue-clad regulars on game nights and sloshy dance club on weekends. For those not lucky enough to score tickets, the venue features an impressive number of flat-screen TVs over the bar and sprinkled ... more

    Canary Square - Bar | Gastropub in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Even the most tattooed of Jamaica Plain’s routinely plaid-clad denizens can tire of swilling PBR, and that’s where Canary Square comes in. This cozy gastropub attracts much the same crowd of hipsters, artists, and laid-back pals as the authentic and popular Brendan Behan's Pub up the street, but pumps up the food and alcohol ... more

    Boston Beer Works - Brewery | Restaurant | Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Boasting over fifty handcrafted ales, lagers, pilsners, and stouts, Fenway-based Boston Beer Works keeps a steady flow of Red Sox and craft beer fans on tap. During baseball season, the conveniently located venue hosts rowdy hordes of jerseyed pilsner pounders who gather in the Dugout, the smaller bar and dining area, or ... more

Bostonians don’t mess around with their beer or their nightlife, and the bars and clubs in Boston revolve mostly around the endless Irish pubs full of salty regulars and post-grads who get together to down pints of Guinness and home-grown micro brews, talk Pats, and dump quarters into the jukebox.

The plethora of universities in the area means that droves of students from Boston College, MIT, Boston University, and Harvard show up during the week to sing karaoke and play trivia, and then again on the meat-market weekends to rock out to cover bands and Top 40 hits in the venues around Faneuil Hall and Allston. Luckily, Boston’s T – the subway system that runs until 1am – covers most of the city, making it the “designated driver” for wasted partiers.

While beer may reign supreme, patrons in the mood for a higher-end experience and a more exclusive vibe will still find a smattering of Boston bars and clubs, with chic hotel haunts and chichi lounges in Downtown, the Leather District, or Back Bay – but high-end clubs and venues are decidedly not the defining characteristic of this beer-guzzling, blue-collar town.
