Back Bay, Boston –
Located in the Lenox Hotel and catering to the well-heeled and connected, City Bar is a one-room refuge that draws a clientele of attractive business and finance types, designers, and the media elite, who stop in on weeknights to lounge on lavish leather sofas and chat over whiskey and cocktails.
A simple but elegant décor featuring gray leather patchwork walls bathed in the warm glow of sconces creates an intimate atmosphere for lingering over strawberry kiwi martinis, while a glistening bar showcasing an illuminated 1912 print of an upscale street scene provides more space for the sexy locals and hotel guests to get to know each other.
The action steps up on the weekends, especially in winter, when sophisticated professionals, good-looking couples, and groups of fashionable ladies are allowed to line up in the warm and welcoming Lenox lobby, waiting to be ushered into the swanky bar where the combination of top-shelf spirits, dim lighting, and an eclectic mix of classical and hip-hop creates an atmosphere ripe for romance.
Ideal for pre-dinner drinks with friends or a sexy weekend tryst, City Bar offers its guests an intimate spot that’s deliciously alluring.
Upscale and sophisticated mix of girlfriend groups, couples, young professionals, finance types, and hotel guests, late 20s to late 30s.
Bartender playlists featuring everything from light jazz to old-school hip-hop.
Full menu includes New England crab cakes and tuna tartare.
Appetizers $6–$13, entrées $8–$28. Beer $6–$14, wine $7–$14, cocktails $11+, champagne $7+.
Dressy: designer heels and dresses for women, blazers and button-downs for men.
Fridays and Saturdays for the busiest scene, especially in the winter.
Also inside the Lenox Hotel is City Table, an inviting restaurant with a good list of specialty cocktails perfect for starting the night.
