Girls Weekend

  • 7

I'm looking for suggestions for dinner/drinks for a girls weekend in Boston - we are looking for relaxed fun places to have a few drinks and a laugh.

  1. Hi there!
    What time of year are you coming, and what area of Boston are you staying in? Any thoughts you have on what type of places your looking for will help as well!

      We are staying near Copley Place and are coming in a few weeks. We are looking for more casual places to enjoy a good meal and a few drinks. More lounge/pup type places than clubs. Any ideas are much appreciated!

    2. Right near where you're staying, try Parish Cafe. In the South End, Gaslight. In Cambridge, outside Harvard Square, The Westside Lounge.

      1. absolutely you have to go to the Eastern Standard. they have the best cocktail selection in town. if you prefer beer, sunset grill & tap in allston has a superb selection + pub food.
        the beehive in the south end is a fun place for brunch.
        toro (south end) is also a tasty place with tapas & great sangria.
        what about the prudential center, top floor for drinks & bar food - they have live music and a fantastic view of the city.
        have fun!

        1. 28 Degrees is a walk from the Copley...but it may be a cab ride back !! :)


          1. I love the bar at Excelsior for drinks with the girls. They have great apps to share (especially love the lobster pizza). I'd also go with the bar in Jury's, Bar 10 in the Westin, or Via Matta. I second the recommendation for 28 degrees. 75 Chestnut also would fit the bill.

            1. I had my 30th birthday at the bar at Excelsior- they were FANTASTIC. You can grab a table overlooking the gardens, its awesome. My new favorite bar is Union Bar in the South end, although dinner is not cheap, their drinks are fantastic. For a more laid back, lounge feel, there is the enormous room in Central Square in Cambridge. I would NOT suggest the Living room in the North End/Wharf district. It gets too busy and although the music is ok, the crowd is annoying.
