550 Tremont St.
Boston, MA 02116
www.bandgoysters.comLet’s face it: given that valet parking is probably a luxury for most of us out there, the varying degrees of price for this service may not pose as much of a concern for those who indulge on a semi-regular basis. That being said, the B&G Oyster Bar offers valet parking after 5 p.m. for the price of $16 per car, with valets located directly outside the bar’s Tremont Street location. The convenience of having one’s car being whisked away matches nicely with B & G’s indulgent, yet comfortable food and drink atmosphere. Offering fresh seafood dishes and fine spirits in addition to over twelve different varieties of coastal oysters, B & G serves as an excellent place to impress a date, kick off a night out or even hold a private dinner, all in the comfort of Boston’s South End.
Grill 23 & Bar
161 Berkeley St. (at Stuart St.)
Boston, MA 02116
www.grill23.comComparably priced at $16 per car, the valet service at Grill 23 is similarly located outside of the bar and grille’s Stuart Street entrance, and also offers a complimentary escort service for their wheelchair patrons; a nice, welcoming gesture which mirrors Grill 23’s warm interior atmosphere. A longstanding dinner and drink destination for those not looking to bar hop, Grill 23 offers over 1,500 different wine varieties for the discerning consumer, while also specializing in top shelf steak and seafood fare. Don’t think about shooting down to this bar and grille directly after the gym however, for Grill 23 is Business Casual minimal, with Dress Code Jacket serving as their preferred attire.
250 Franklin St.
Boston, MA 02110
www.bondboston.comSuper chic and ultra-stylish, the Bond Lounge and Restaurant is a dress-to-impress destination located within central Boston’s Langham Hotel, which is also where this fantastically hip joint offers its Franklin Street valet parking service. Bond embodies its cool-as-ice moniker by adapting the swinging 60s spy swag of their shaken-not-stirred namesake into a chill, laid back lounge style. Whether it’s musical entertainment-live DJ sets, electro-lounge and modern jazz-or sexy dance parties, Bond spares no expense at getting their collective lead out when it comes to offering up a great time for their guests.
The Living Room
101 Atlantic Ave.
Boston, MA 02110
www.thelivingroomboston.comThe Living Room prides itself on transferring that all-important “homey” feeling to all who walk through their doors, a sentiment which may stand in stark contrast to much of this Atlantic Avenue bar’s higher scale competition. Oddly enough, The Living Room actually charges two dollars more than either Grill 23 or B & G, although this waterfront destination also happens to offer valet service to large or private parties on any evening-with proper notice-which is certainly a case of going the extra mile. Luckily, The Living Room happily validates $11 parking at the 75 State St. Garage, as well as $12 parking at Lewis Wharf on Atlantic while offering their own normal valet service on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 5pm to close. Whether you’re strolling from Faneuil Hall or letting the valets whisk your wheels away, The Living Room’s excellent martini selection, scrumptious appetizers and old school bar trivia all promise a very good time.

www.luccaboston.com“You get what you pay for,” is the typical response when questioning higher prices, and this sentiment certainly proves true with the Lucca Restaurant and Bar, located in Boston’s famous North End. At $20, Lucca’s is clearly the most expensive out of our valet parking destinations, however, this established food and drink meeting place takes its parking situation very seriously. While many may ask themselves “why should I pay more?” one need only look to the blogosphere or newspapers to read stories and complaints concerning valet parking infringements. At least in Lucca’s case, you can rest easy knowing that your precious baby will be taken in by responsible hands. This, combined with Lucca’s established Italian culinary expertise and epic wine/cocktail/spirits list, ensure a memorable evening.
