  1. Silvertone, on Bromfield Street. Great drinks, fun crowd, no college or Euro dancing poseurs. :)

      Silvertone is closed until September 7. Hope they didn't go there!

        Well, at least there wouldn't be any lines. :)

    2. The bars at Teatro, No. 9 Park and Spire all would work. More upscale but definitely not college. Davio's, Excelsior and the Bristol Lounge a short walk away.

      1. I like Teatro but it is very small for drinks. Bristol Lounge may be a little too stuffy. Excelsior is a great spot. Also try IVY, they have a cool lounge downstairs. Felt is big but you may be disappointed with the crowd.

        1. Oh, I know the best place! Jacob Wirth's in the theater district. Friday nights is fun - Mel Stiller plays the piano and everyone sings. I think Saturday night there is a jazz group. It is worth it just to see the enormous and beautiful old mahogany bar. Hope this is a good suggestion for you.

          1. Try Les Zygomates - fun & hip bar, no students.
