    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

    Bleacher Bar - Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Although there are plenty of bars around Fenway Park, none of them offer a view quite like Bleacher Bar. Tucked under the Green Monster’s bleachers, the one-time batting practice room is now a classy Sox bar with a wall-spanning window that looks directly out onto center field. Tourists and crowds of Boston University students ... more

    The Phoenix Landing - Club | Irish Pub | Restaurant | Sports Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review An Irish pub, soccer hub, and dance club all united under the enormous wooden phoenix perched out front, The Phoenix Landing pulls a seamless Jekyll and Hyde act as it transforms into each incarnation throughout the day. Framed jerseys, antique Guinness signs, flat-screens, and leprechaun statuettes dress the walls and ... more

    Les Zygomates - Jazz Bar | Restaurant | Wine Bar in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Boasting an outstanding wine selection and an intimate bistro atmosphere, Les Zygomates is a prime date night destination for those looking for a taste of Paris near downtown Boston.

    Brendan Behan's Pub - Bar | Irish Pub in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Anyone looking for an authentic taste of Dublin in the heart of Jamaica Plain should head to Brendan Behan’s Pub, a laid-back neighborhood watering hole where it’s all about friendly chitchat and good beer. Dimly lit with a constant soundtrack of indie hits and rock classics, the tiny bar offers over twenty-five draft beers ... more

    The Asgard - Irish Pub | Restaurant in Boston.

    Party Earth Review Despite only being around since 2005, The Asgard has a homey vintage vibe thanks a whole mess of Ireland-imported décor and furnishings, some of which date back nearly two centuries. Of course, the local MIT regulars are probably more interested in the extensive craft beer list and the cheap wings than where the lampshades ... 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.
