About Boston, MA Nightlife


Boston nightlife offers a vast array of options to please the diverse mix of residents who call Boston home. With an ever-changing college population, Boston is home to many young adults looking to enjoy the night. You may not party until the break of dawn, but you'll be able to party hardy and maybe even save a little steam to play the next day. Filled with boisterous dance clubs, upscale wine bars, laid back lounges and some of the best dives to be found Boston's club scene kicks into full gear by 11pm and is over by 2am. While bars may not serve all night long some restaurants keep late hours and become social hubs for after hours fun. Check out the scene in Chinatown at one of the many restaurants open well into the wee hours of the early morning, or grab a bite in the North End at Caffe Pompei; a popular late night gathering spot for the after club crowd. Boston may not be known for all night lounges spilling patrons onto the street after sunrise, but those who are out and about after dark make the most of the open hours at every club.
