Boston After Hours Overview

The Brahmin - Bar | Lounge | Restaurant in Boston

Boston watering holes close by 2am. The T stops running trains and buses around 12:30am. Both of these Beantown curfews are a dramatic improvement over how things used to be even 30 short years ago.

After hours in Boston is for folks who, in the wee hours of the morning, just don't want to go home. Choices are admittedly limited thanks to the city's Puritanical roots, which still seem to be alive and kicking.

Rise is the only after-hours club in Boston. The dance spot features early-morning concerts, and guest appearances by DJs and techno artists looking to spin some tracks till 6am. The joint opens at 1am, so there's plenty of time to club hop all over town before heading here while everyone else scrambles for a cab home.

There are also a few eateries scattered around town that serve patrons until 5am, namely Victoria's Diner in Roxbury and the South Street Diner in Downtown Boston.

The Boston after-hours scene is a bit of an oxymoron. No one has ever accused Beantown of being a city that never sleeps, but for those who want to make their evenings last as long as possible, there are a few spots to hit up.
