Great Places to Visit for Dining and Nightlife in Boston

If you’re looking to enjoy Boston’s nightlife, there are plenty of nightclubs and enjoyable private dining venues to check out while in town. I recently took a trip to Boston and here are some of the more popular spots I would recommend you visit.

Frost Ice Bar

Frost Ice Bar is the world’s largest permanent ice bar, situated in the Faneuil Hall marketplace. During the day, families can enjoy the place by paying to spend 45 minutes inside to look at all of the ice sculptures and take in the atmosphere.

However, after 4:15 PM the environment changes and becomes a nightlife haven, where you can drink from ice glasses, mingle, and sit on ice seats.


As one of the most popular nightlife spots in town, Tunnel combines jetsetters with professionals to culminate in an enjoyable experience for all. DJs are always spinning the latest in house, dance, and Top Forty tracks.

This place offers plenty of high-rolling cocktails too, to give you that luxury feeling that other places rarely will. It’s located below ground at Boston’s W Hotel.


Found in the Langham Hotel, the Bond is a great place to dine and wine. As a hotel bar, this place has everything for the perfect experience. Whether you want to stop in for a drink or enjoy a nice meal, Bond carries with it an unrivaled elegance that will make your time here unforgettably pleasant. Music also adds to the overall atmosphere to complete the experience.

Oak Long Bar and Kitchen

Oak Long Bar and Kitchen is an updated and modern location that combines an elegant steakhouse and a fun bar within the same spot. This restaurant also adds a contemporary appeal to its decor, with an open kitchen that sits behind the bar to encourage food orders.

The menu is expansive, offering everything from simple snacks to full-course meals. The bar is also extraordinarily social, influencing more people to speak to each other than you’ll find at other more isolating spaces.

Legal Harborside

Legal Harborside is a unique rooftop lounge with a retractable roof that’s great for spending those warm summer nights enjoying a nice cocktail and a relaxing small meal. While you’re better off eating dinner at a location with a more extensive menu, you can enjoy the evening atmosphere here and sip on your favorite drink. You’ll have a great time when you visit this location, and in the cooler winters you can still enjoy this place with a closed roof.

Regardless of the type of location you’re looking for to spend the day or evening, there are plenty of private rooms for dining and lounging experiences to be had in the heart of Boston.

You don’t need to worry about being unable to find the perfect place to relax or party while you’re in town, with an eclectic selection of places to visit. Like most experiences, the nightlife experience is far from lost in Boston.
