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.
