Cross Boylston Street to Boston Common, the nation’s oldest city park, and stroll past the Granary Burying Ground to Faneuil Hall. For Fenway Park, New England Aquarium, and other downtown attractions, we are conveniently located near The T.
You can also check out these nearby theaters and nightclubs:
- Wilbur Theater. Located on Tremont Street, the Wilbur Theatre has been hosting live comedy and music since 1914. This historic theater is known for being the first in Boston to move away from European architectural designs and instead taking inspiration from the American colonization period. Over the next few months, The Wilbur has some fantastic acts performing, most notably Kevin James, star of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Mike Epps.
- Shubert Theater. A restored 1,500+ seat venue that was originally used for Shakespearean plays, the Shubert Theater is considered the little princess in Boston’s theater district. Acting as the home for local community arts, the Shubert Theater also serves as a stopping point for Broadway shows, music, dance, and opera.
- Royale Nightclub. One of Boston’s premier nightclubs, Royale has been a popular choice with Bostonians for many years. Combining splendid walls that are steeped in architectural designs with a modern interior feel, Royale offers the ultimate clubbing experience. Open every Friday and Saturday night, the type of music played ranges from R&B, hip-hop, dance, house, and Latin music to just name a few genres. Drinks can be on the expensive side, with a mixer such as Vodka and Red Bull costing around $12. Cover is $20, while booking online can save you $2. The nightclub is essentially split into two, with Candibar located below Royale, open to cater to different music tastes. For the ultimate clubbing experience, guests can enjoy one of many bottle packages that can include a private dance floor for 8 guests, a VIP guest list to skip the long lines, and a designated reservation specialist.
- Bijou. This one prides and promotes itself as being a luxury, upscale nightclub for people who want to be seen at the coolest place in Boston. Everything you would expect from a top nightclub establishment is here; strobe lights, blaring club music, techno stuff, good drink selection, electronic music, and comfy leather chairs for you to relax on. Despite being an old building, Bijou received a facelift in 2011. DJs from across the world usually play on the weekends and occasionally the weekdays. DJs who have played at Bijou in the past include Passion Pit and Will Trahan. Try arriving between 10pm-11pm to make sure you get in. The space is small and you could find yourself battling long lines. The club is super easy to find though, located in Chinatown with Downtown Crossing being the closest T stop. Of course, if you want to roll up in style, you can always drive, as plenty of street parking will be available.
- Marliave. If you are looking for good quality food, look no further than the Marliave on Bosworth Street. Serving traditional French dishes since 1885, the restaurant was first opened by French immigrant Henry Marliave. Fast-forward just over a hundred years later, Marliave was purchased by grotto chef Scott Herrit. His first actions were to tweak the menu to include few a more American dishes and transform the atmosphere, working to the theme that there is ‘something for everybody.’ The end result of this makeover? Marliave has received praise on rating websites such as Yelp. People commented on the food being impeccable and the service being fast and pleasant. A wide variety of food is available, from hamburgers to pasta to sandwiches. Prices are quite high but this is to be expected due to the quality of the food.
- Shojo Boston. Recently announced as the winner of Boston Magazine’s Starch Madness for having the best fries (Duck fat fries that is, the Japanese aren’t renowned for their French fries!) and being listed on Zagat’s top 10 hottest bars in Boston right now, Shojo impresses on many levels. Shojo is a Japanese restaurant and bar opened by Mark O’Leary, who is also the brains behind other eating-places such as Guchi’s Midnight Ramen and The Future of Junk Food. Diners have the chance to tuck into delicious sounding meals such as the Crispy Shrimp Bao and the Shojiko Chicken Tacos. Once you have finished, how about washing it down in a Mizu Sunrise or a Mai Tai? Super close to public transportation, Shojo is located on 9A Tyler Street in Chinatown. For those who are turning up in a party of 10 people or more, reservations are available while Shojo can also host private functions and holiday parties.
- Emerald Lounge. In the near vicinity of the Copley T stop and on the Mezzanine level of Revere Hotel, Emerald Lounge is a great place to unwind, particularly in the summer where you can enjoy drinks and food on the balcony while gazing out on the Boston skyline. Just like Bijou, things can get a bit cramped, especially when the lounge turns from a bar into a club, but the atmosphere more than compensates for this. The type of crowd that hangs around is between the 21-40 age bracket, a favorite with internationals and the jet-setting crowd. Drinks are reasonably priced, with a bottle of Corona costing $6 and cocktails costing around the $11 mark.
But if you just want to lounge in the hotel, they also have an art gallery. The entire Mezzanine floor of W Boston Hotel is an art gallery where you and your guests can enjoy contemporary art pieces from both local and internationally renowned artists.
What are some recent reviews from couples who have gotten married at W Boston Hotel?
I’m not sure where to start. The W team made our wedding amazing from start to finish. The staff was excellent and the food was amazing!!!! They allowed us to have an amazing wedding in Boston that was affordable.
We had a W Hotel Boston wedding and words can not even begin to describe how amazing our wedding was and how unreal the W was to us. We had the wedding of our dreams and the W was a big part of why. We had about 75 guests and we had both our wedding ceremony and wedding reception on the mezzanine level. We loved that the W gave us the entire second floor to do whatever we wanted with it. A lot of event spaces we looked at, did not have a completely private venue like that. It was the perfect size and space for us. Very modern and open to doing what we wanted with it.
It is also not a wedding factory like some of the venues out there and they really care about you and your day. Tiffany was our wedding planner and she was an angel. She really got my vision. Anytime I needed something she was there. Anytime I was struggling with something she had an answer day or night. I miss planning with her every day. She helped me plan every single detail and calmed my nerves. We were treated like royalty before the wedding and during. Even our guests complimented how amazing Tiffany and the staff were. Everything went so smoothly. We did a buffet for dinner and they set it up very classy with small plate stations. We had a pasta bar that was unreal. All of the food was amazing and they set it up very unique.
The suite they gave us for the wedding night was also the most gorgeous space I have ever seen. We LOVED it. They also did so many special things for us along the way to let us know they cared about us and our day. I would highly recommend getting married and even hosting rehearsal dinner or bridal showers at the W because this is perfect for wedding events. We wish we could relive that day over and over again.
