    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

    The Lower Depths - Bar | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Descending into The Lower Depths generally isn’t a good thing, unless, of course, it’s referring to Boston’s funky craft beer bar. Located a few blocks from Fenway, the venue surges with Sox fans two hours before and after games, but the regular crowd is composed of hipsters, artists, and free thinkers who congregate beneath ... more

    Devlin's Bistro & Bar - Bar | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Amid a sea of grungy Brighton dives, Devlin’s Bistro & Bar stands out like a sore but classy thumb. The long main room, painted in soft earth tones and decorated with modern art, is divided neatly in half. Swanky locals head straight for the main bar to sip craft cocktails in the shadow of black-and-whites of jazz greats ... more

    Common Ground - Restaurant | Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Student-friendly Allston may be packed with all-too-similar “bar and grill” venues, but Common Ground stands out from the herd with its unique and extensive beer list, solid food, convivial neighborhood bar vibe, and a slightly older and more upscale clientele. The crisp cream-colored walls and dark wood trim, combined ... more

    Cantab Lounge - Dive Bar | Live Music Venue in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Featuring local rock, blues, and soul musicians every night, Cantab Lounge’s upstairs/downstairs set-up attracts an eclectic cross-section of pub crawlers, college kids, and music lovers. Early in the week, patrons will find a pretty chill atmosphere as a laid-back crowd of blue-collar regulars congregates at the ground ... more

    The Place - Club | Restaurant | Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review If the fist-pumping Jersey Shore crew ever relocated to Boston, odds are good The Place would be on their frizzy-haired radar. In fact, they’d fit right in amid the kids in low-cut shirts and barely-there skirts who show up for nightly DJs and large cocktails. Chiefly a sports bar earlier in the day, the venue draws young ... 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.
