Downtown / Financial District, Boston –
Located inside the Langham Hotel and once the Member’s Court of Boston’s Federal Reserve Bank, Bond is now where the smart money goes to invest in a night of sophisticated carousing.
High ceilings, marble columns, and crystal chandeliers recall the venue’s former life, while modern touches like plush gold sofas and a mirrored wall behind the bar set the stage for the early evening influx of sociable finance types looking for after-work dinner and cocktails or trying to impress a date.
Later on, tunes spun by a DJ greet the sleek hotel guests in Armani and Dior, who show up to get cozy on the dance floor.
Other fun-loving patrons in the mood to indulge make their way to the leather couches and banquettes to order expensive martinis with names like The Liquidity and the Sawbuck, or cocktails named for notorious bank robbers John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson.
Weekends see the vibe turn even more flirtatious as single professionals and socialites exchange come-hither glances at the bar or join local celebrities and sports figures in the private Dom Perignon Lounge, where they can survey the action from the balcony.
Exclusive yet unpretentious, Bond is a great bet for patrons looking to splurge on something a few steps up from the neighborhood bar.
Socialites, business and finance types, hotel guests, people in the entertainment industry, and celebs from on-location shoots, early 20s to late 30s.
Metropolitan Tea daily 3–5pm. DJs spin Top 40 tunes and mash-ups Th–Sa. Occasional fashion shows and alcohol vendor promotion nights.
International menu including Thai ginger spring rolls, empanadas, duck ragout, and Moroccan spiced lamb.
Appetizers $5–$16, entrées $13–$30, desserts $9. Beer $5–$11, wine $9–$18, cocktails $14, champagne $50–$2,000/bottle, bottle service $300+.
Dress to impress. Men in Armani suits, women in Dior dresses. Dress code: no sneakers, hats, shorts (men), flip-flops, or excessively baggy clothing.
Friday and Saturday nights for the busiest scene, though a line usually forms after 10pm.
RumBa inside the Intercontinental Hotel (510 Atlantic Avenue) is a swanky cocktail bar paying tribute to the rum trade.
