I am going to Boston next weekend for a bachelorette party where there will be 10 ladies who are in their early 30's. We are staying in Copley Place at the Westin and their concierge wasn't too helpful with regards to restaurant sugestions -- grr.

We are looking for someplace fun, upbeat not too posh -- any cuisine aside from sushi or japanese/chinese would be welcome. Sorry, I have never been to Boston and I want to make sure you friend has a great time....

    28 Degrees, which is not too far from Copley Place, would probably be a fun yet chic choice for a bachelorette party:

      Another traditional response to this would be Cuchi Cuchi in Cambridge, but I'd also consider Eastern Standard in Kenmore Square, good bar, good food, big fun space.

      I attended a fun bachelorette with similarly aged ladies at Stella in the South End and it worked out really well. http://bostonstella.com/ I've done something similar at Rocca as well. Both are close enough to 28 Degrees (mentioned by kitsune) that you could take a short cab ride for drinks before or after. I've never eaten at 28 Degrees and can't comment on the food, though the atmosphere is perfect for a bachelorette.

        I'm not sure what price point you are looking to be in, but I would second 28 degrees for the chic atmosphere. If you are looking for cheaper than that, I recently went to Rustic Kitchen for a bachelorette party (which I was not at all excited for). The food was typical Italian, but inexpensive for what it was. We got a private wine room for 14 girls- we paid for the bachelorette and I think it was $70/person and that included enough wine to get the girls tipsy enough for our reservation at Jacques. A great time was had by all.

          I would second the Stella recommendation. I haven't been there for a bachelorette party but I've dined there several times for a girls night out and had a great time. The place is loud and lively and with foods like flatbreads and pasta dishes, it can satisfy even the pickiest of eaters! I highly recommend their cheese plate - yum!
