The Champagne Lounge is the place to go in Boston’s Financial District for those seeking some creature comforts, since this posh lounge – located on Atlantic Ave. within the Intercontinental Hotel –provides plenty of sophisticated fun, relaxation and more than a little pampering. Private rooms and bars are available for the exclusive VIP treatment, while velvet couches, mood lighting and fancy-food bites create the perfect atmosphere for friendly chit-chat, intimate conversation or mutual mingling. The Champagne Lounge at Rumba is cool as a cucumber.

The Hawthorne is similar to the Champagne Lounge in that both lounges are located within hotels, but the similarities end there, bar this bar inside the Hotel Commonwealth near Fenway tends to focus on a different kind of movie star, namely that of the chic, hipster sort. The Hawthorne is a place where everything old is new again and an old fashioned charm and atmosphere ushers in the sort of cool that can only be described as self-aware” making this bar a great place to hunker down with friends to sip and chat over an Oscar telecast.

Stanza dei Sigari
292 Hanover St.
Boston, MA 02113
(617) 227-0295

Hyper-masculine images of burly, mustachioed men come to mind when a traditionally Italian moniker the likes of “Stanza dei Sigari” is mentioned. Indeed, this Hanover Street cigar bar very much caters to a “gentleman’s club,” yet Stanza dei Sigari also works as a great place for groups and couples to visit, as well. The fact that Stanza Dei Sigari offers cordial drinks and doubles as a hookah bar means that it opens up to a wider variety of customers and interests, while the relaxed, lounge-esque atmosphere ensures a fun, comfortable time each visit.

Alibi Bar And Lounge

Alibi Bar and Lounge is yet another hotel bar, this time with a prison theme, complete with mug shots! What better way to get in touch with your inner celebrity scandal? Cool and kitschy as Alibi may be, there is an undeniably upscale feel to the place. Although drinks can be a bit expensive here, live music and dancing ensures that the party atmosphere never stops, while a nice mixture of young professionals in their twenties and thirties lifts Alibi a bit above other hotel bars in terms of infectious energy.
