Party Earth Forum Review

The Scene

Trendy Forum in Boston's Back Bay provides a sexy respite from Boylston Street's hustle & bustle. Don't miss this sultry Boston club/lounge at Party Earth.

Right in the thick of always-booming Boylston Street, slick and trendy Forum provides a sexy respite from the hustle and bustle of one of Boston’s busiest thoroughfares.

During the week, sophisticated 9-to-5ers still in ties and heels unwind at the large center bar, sipping craft cocktails or signature “fusions” like the rum, vanilla, and mint syrup medley known as the Crimson Sky.

Mellow lounge music guards against eavesdroppers, while more than a dozen TVs keep the dapper crowd abreast of the game.

Though the weekday vibe tends to be chill – even with floor-to-ceiling doors facing busy Boylston – small groups looking for more privacy can settle into the rear alcove as they snack on the bistro menu’s chicken waffles or house-made porchetta.

Things liven up come Friday, however, as jacketed young gents and chic party girls flounce through the icy blue foyer, and the cavernous first floor fills with mobs of eye candy.

Those who need to escape the hectic scene can head upstairs, where a more intimate bar and dozens of pristine tables make up the ritzy dining room.

Brunch on the weekends, meanwhile, is an airy experience, with sunlight reflecting off the mirrors that hide the building’s support pillars, and a separate “Liquid Brunch” menu serving up inventive concoctions like Godiva liqueurs and spicy sangria.

Unlike some of the city’s more cramped bars, Forum is the ideal spot to rub elbows with classy clientele without literally colliding with them.

Tip from Adriana:

If wine is your drink of choice, you’ll love the Wine Room – a glass-walled private room on the second floor that stores the bar’s 1,300-bottle collection. There’s even a single table inside that you can reserve for an ultra-romantic night out.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

Come for the burger, stay for the fries
chelsey c. Jun 4, 2013
I went to Foundry on a Monday night during a Bruins playoff game so I girded myself for what you'd expect of a bar in Davis during playoffs. To my suprise, although Foundry was busy, you could still move around and the service was fast. I got the Chef burger representing Foundry in The Battle of the Burgers competition and I hate to say it but I was waaay more impressed with the fries. The burger was good; cooked properly, nice and thick but pickeled onions are overplayed and I was sick of them 3 months ago. Now the fries..these little fat bombs were what fries are supposed to taste like. Delightfully light and crunchy on the outside and generously salted. My leftovers didn't even make it off the train.
