Like most major cities, there is no shortage of venues in Boston whether you’re looking to dance, party, listen to live music, or just watch the game.
Being that it’s such a devoted sports town, the Boston venues that cater to the passionately obsessed fan base are truly hallowed places of worship. Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox, TD Garden hosts the Boston Celtics and Bruins, and outside of the city, Gillette Stadium is home to the New England Patriots.
Beyond sports, there are a plethora of music venues that feature big name acts and small time singers alike. There’s the Wilbur Theatre, House of Blues, and Orpheum Theater on the medium side, while the Beehive, Lucky’s Lounge, and TT the Bear’s Place trend smaller. The Boston Esplanade meanwhile is a great summer destination along the Charles River and a perfect warm-weather spot for open-air concerts.
For more discerning tastes, Boston is of course home to an incredible amount of theaters, galleries, and performing arts centers where the symphony and opera go hand in hand with live stage acts and one man shows.
But if classical music puts you to sleep, just head to Faneuil Hall for an endless supply of restaurants, bars, clubs, and live music packed into an historic setting.
