Party Earth Ned Devine's Review

The Scene

Located in the middle of Boston's bustling Faneuil Hall area, Ned Devine's is a mild-mannered pub and restaurant by day and an amped-up party destination on weekend nights.

Located in the middle of Boston’s bustling Faneuil Hall area, Ned Devine’s is a mild-mannered pub and restaurant by day and an amped-up party destination on weekend nights.

Tucked away in the corner of the busy Quincy Market building, this three-level local haunt is a convenient spot to grab a quick drink after browsing through some of the building’s many food vendors, book stores, and souvenir shops.

A spiral staircase by the intimate downstairs bar leads patrons up to a large dining area, where locals gather for drinks by the glow of Irish beer and whiskey signs and watch the Red Sox on the TVs over the bar, while groups of tourists fill the tables and vintage pinstriped sofas to relax over generous plates of comfort food.

Although dim lighting from the wrought iron chandeliers create a laid-back atmosphere, the space turns into a meat market starting on Thursday nights when the third-floor Parris Nightclub opens up and DJs or live cover bands draw huge crowds of pub crawlers, bachelorette parties, and locals looking to hook up or hit the dance floor under the red and blue strobe lights.

The energy keeps building as the mass of stumbling, drunken patrons chug cocktails, sing along to Bon Jovi, and bat lashes until closing time.

A sociable and versatile watering hole, Ned Devine’s is a hotspot equally perfect for a relaxing evening with friends on a Monday or an electrifying dance party on a Friday.

Tip from Lucas:

If you’re looking to take in a Sox game over a few cheap beers, Ned’s is a good place to do it – even better if you go on a Friday, when you can dance with hot girls until last call.

Ned Devine's User Reviews

Average rating:
Ned Devine's offers an old Irish-pub feel with amazing space that transforms at night.
Maddie H. Oct 22, 2013
Aside from the great pub food, Ned Devine's has great drinks with decent pricing, along with an atmosphere to die for. The floor space is unbeatable, with three major rooms to move through. The front room has an old Irish feel, but if you're looking to get down to business, the dance floor is awesome even when it's packed.
Great fun for everyone!

Something for Everyone

If you are going out with a big group of people where everyone has a different idea of what an ideal night is, than Ned Devine's is the perfect compromise. Before 9pm, there is no cover and $10 after that. There are three different sections to this establishment, which almost makes it seem like you are in three different bars. Each section has its own bar so you never have to go searching for your next drink. When you first walk up the stairs, you are awaited by a huge bar with tables and lounges. This is the most low key area of Ned Devine's. After walking down a hallway where the restrooms are located, the next room features an open-room concept with a smaller bar. This room features Top 40 music. There wasn't much dancing happening in this room, it's more of a social drinking atmosphere with high-top booths and tables. The third room features a huge dance floor area. On Friday and Saturday nights you can often find either a DJ spinning the hottest hits or a cover band playing. Ned Devine's is a great time and almost everyone will enjoy themselves. The cover charge is about average. The drinks are a little pricey, but usual for Boston nightlife. The only con is the rest rooms. There really should be a bathroom attendant and they could be a whole lot cleaner. I've seen cleaner bathrooms at Fenway Park.

Every time I have been to Ned Devine's, I've had a blast. It's a great place to bring friends who are visiting. Although there's a $10 cover, it's definitely worth it. I love how Ned's is divided into three sections, complete with bars and music. Spending the night on the dance floor with the live band playing is always a good time.
Great bar to visit even for the out-of-towner.

Cool place that offers 3 very different feeling bars so it's right for whatever mood you're in. I visited Ned's on my first trip to Boston and loved it because it's right in the middle of everything. The power went out while we were there and the party kept going anyway!

This place has a $10 cover on fridays and saturdays. The bar is broken up into three sections. The first section is pretty low key and it kind of a pub scene. The second section has party music (hip hop/rap), and the last section has a live band and a big dance floor. Each section has its own bar. Fun place.
