Private Room for a Baby Shower in or near Boston

achoo Jan 8, 2013 02:38 PM

I'm looking for a restaurant or boutique-y hotel that has a private room that would be a good choice for a baby shower. I live in Chicago I'm so at a huge disadvantage! I'm guessing it will be for approx 25-30 people. Any special location ideas?

    I hosted a baby shower in the zebra room at UpStairs on the Square in Harvard Square and it was absolutely lovely. It's kind of a long narrow room which could have been weird but wasn't. We did it over afternoon tea which was perfect - lots of sweet and savory snacks for everyone...and tea.

        I also specifically clicked on this thread to recommend Upstairs on the Square.

          Can you give me any information Re: the difference between The Monday Club Room and The Zebra Room at Upstairs on the Square?

            No, I've only been to the zebra room, but it is perfect for this kind of thing.

        The Cottage in Chestnut Hill has a really nice shower-friendly space (http://cottagechestnuthill.com).

        Also the Elephant Walk on Mass. Ave. in Cambridge.

        You can find a listing of private dining venues in the Boston area here:
